New York City Man Attacked on Subway for Wearing Donald Trump Cap

A 24-year-old Bronx man was attacked on a New York City subway by two men for the so-called offense of wearing a “Make American Great Again” pro-Donald Trump cap.

Corey Cataldo told Eyewitness News, the ABC Channel 7 affiliate in New York, that he was riding in one of the cars when one of his alleged attackers asked if he was a Trump supporter.

From ABC 7:

“‘He asked me if I’m a Trump supporter. I said ‘yeah’ and thought he’d say ‘me too.’ People have been doing that,’ Cataldo said. ‘But no. This man was not a Trump supporter.’

“Cataldo said the man stood up and became flustered.

“‘The next thing I know, I have hands around my neck and I’m being choked,’ Cataldo said. ‘I try to fight him off, and another gentleman comes over, pretends like he’s going to help me and says ‘get off of him.’ He shoves me up against the wall, up against the window.’”

Nobody else on the train intervened to assist, Cataldo said.

He also said he filed a report with local police.

And his answer, when the reporter asked if he would stop wearing his cap?

Classic Trump-esque.

“Absolutely not. This hat will be on for the next eight years,” he said. …

“I’ll be damned if I have to take my hat off because it makes people upset,” he said, on the video of his interview. “That will never happen.”

Cataldo, an electrician, said he still suffers pain in his shoulder, but was able to return to work.

“Violence is never the answer, no matter what side it’s on,” he said.
