Symonette, who legally changed her name from Woodside shortly after her acquittal, claimed Mitchell’s sentencing was politically motivated because the group supported Republicans, “and Democrats were very afraid of it,” The New Times reported.

In 2019, Symonette told local media that Mitchell asked his followers to support Trump as far back as 1984.

“Yahweh Ben Yahweh told us in 1984 that Trump was Cyrus,” Symonette told Local 10 News, referring to the former Persian king. “He said one day he would run for president.”

Symonette told a similar story to The Washington Post in 2018.

“Ben Yahweh said, ‘He is the man, he is the one who will fight for you,'” he said at the time.

“Those who do not repent, do you think you are strong enough to oppose me, Trump and the Black Elamites and the Hebrew Israelites, Earth’s greatest warriors? N—-, stand up!” He continued. “Look what’s happening, boy. We’re going to stomp you a–.”

In the video, Symonette referred to the late Mitchell as her “father” and son of God.

In April last year, several people were shot, including one fatally, during one of Symonette’s weekly Jet Ski parties at her ministry headquarters in North Miami.

Last week, Symonette bragged in a video that her all-ages parties at the ministry often included a mix of white and black gang members and everyone got along and had fun.

“Black people mingle with nice white Europeans who are called the deplorable, the blessed – but only I can achieve that,” he said in the May 24 video. “I am the only one who can explain to black people who you are and that you are our true blood brother. Yahweh Ben Yahweh taught me that we must fight for you.”

Symonette did not respond to Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.
