New York City police are looking for a subway commuter who did anything but make America Great Again.
The New York ABC station WABC reports that the New York City Police Department is looking for a man who attacked another subway rider on Friday. The suspect wore a red cap "Make America Great Again", which was sold by Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, and a red "Make America Great Again" T-shirt at the time of the attack, police said.
According to the police, the Trump supporter got into a verbal quarrel with the passenger before he hit him in the head as he approached the Union Square train station in Manhattan. Then he followed the victim, described by the police as a 24-year-old Hispanic man, off the train and pushed him onto the tracks.
