A Trump supporter was beaten by a group of teenagers, while he was wearing a MAGA hat. This is not the first time a trump supporter has been attacked.
According to Fox 5 NY, Jahangir "John" Turan, 42, says it happened Tuesday evening on Canal Street. He was wearing the MAGA hat that he had purchased earlier in the day at Trump Tower.
"I love President Trump. I think he's doing a great job," Turan said.
He says the group of about 15 "kids" yelled "F*** Trump" and stomped on him. One of them smashed his head into a scaffold. Turan says he suffered a fracture in his cheek and a badly swollen eye. He's awaiting an eye specialist to determine if there is any permanent damage to his sight.

He held a Thursday afternoon news conference to demand that the NYPD find those responsible for the attack.
As for wearing the hat again in New York City, he says he'll think twice before doing it again.
"It's sad to get beat up for wearing this hat. This is America," Turan said.
When will liberal politicians call out violence against trump supporters? When will these incidents get more media coverage?
