“I told him I’ve never been to another rally in my life,” Anantha said. “I’m a huge Trump supporter. I would never protest against Trump.” 

Anantha, who CNN reported was wearing two pro-Trump T-shirts, said he tried to explain that there was a misunderstanding. 

“I have no idea who you think I am, I’m just an average 18-year-old kid who likes Donald Trump,' and then he just kicked me out," Anantha added. 

“I do think it’s because I’m brown, there’s no denying that,” he said.

Anantha said that someone he believed to be a Trump volunteer told him there was a photo of someone who may look like him

Anantha said someone he believed to be a Trump volunteer told him he looked similar to a protester who was barred from Trump events.

"It can’t be of me because like I said I’ve never protested against Trump. It kind of looks like me so that’s why I’m no longer allowed to go to a Trump rally ever again.”

When asked if the incident would change his support of the GOP nominee, he said: "It makes me kind of think about not supporting Trump himself. It does not make me want to switch to the Democrat side, because I could not do that. "
