A man sporting Trump apparel was charged with simple assault after he exhaled upon two women outside President Donald Trump's Virginia golf resort, CNN reports.

Raymond Deskins, 61, was handed the misdemeanor charge after a cell phone video of the incident was posted on social media.

The video shows Deskins engaged in a non-violent confrontation with anti-Trump protesters. "Get away from me! Get away from me!" one woman shouted, while the other told him "don't get up in somebody's face."

"I'm not in anybody's face," Deskins replied, with the woman responding that he is in her face. Deskins then breathed in the direction of one of the women.

"That's assault!" one of the women yelled, to which the man responded by breathing again. CNN described the man as "exhaling forcefully," although it is unclear what "exhaling forcefully" means.

The Loudon County Sheriff's Office released a statement on the matter stating "our deputies served a warrant obtained by a citizen through a Loudoun County Magistrate. Raymond Deskins, age 61, of Sterling, VA, was charged with simple assault (misdemeanor) and released on a summons."
