Frohnmaier was a press speaker for the current AfD leader Alice Weidel, as well as former party leader Frauke Petry. Until February 2018, he was a federal chairman of the AfD-affiliated organization "Junge Alternative" (Young Alternative), which German intelligence authorities suspect of extremist activities.

He also illegally travelled to the Crimean peninsula in 2016.
