At a March Trump rally in Fountain Hills, Arizona, a 37-year-old man named Paul Horner came forward and said he was paid $3,500 to protest the GOP front-runner, according to ABC News.
The man said he answered a Craigslist ad a week before the rally about a group needing "actors" for a political event.
Horner took the job after passing a short interview. He then attended a mandatory six-hour training session with the group before protesting the rally…

During the training session, Horner was taught to shout chants like "dump Trump" and "Trump is a racist." The group gave Horner a shirt to wear that said "F**k Donald Trump" and a sign to wave that said "Make America White Again."
Horner said he was told if anyone asked about who he was with, he was supposed to talk about Bernie Sanders.
The $3,500 check Horner received for the job was from a group called 'Women Are the Future,' ABC News reported.
No information about the group could be found, and it's not registered as a 501(c) nonprofit.
Horner said his best guess for the people behind the job posting was the Hillary Clinton campaign. All of the people he talked with via email had an AOL address, Horner said. And the Clinton campaign is known for favoring the email server.
When asked about other anti-Trump protesters at the Fountain Hills rally, Horner said he recognized many of them from his interview and training session.
Horner learned from asking some of the protesters at the rally that Latinos were paid $500, Muslims $600, and African Americans $750, ABC News reported. Illegal immigrants, he said, were paid $300.
