Outrageous Man Says He Was Attacked on NYC Subway for Wearing Trump Hat
A Bronx, New York, man says he was attacked by two men on the subway because they objected to his "Make America Great Again" hat.
Corey Cataldo, 24, told ABC in New York that the incident occurred Friday while he rode the train from Union Square in Manhattan to Morris Park in the Bronx.
As the train approached a stop in the Bronx, he said a man asked him about his white Trump hat.
"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 alleges the man then suddenly started choking him and he tried to fight him off. He said a second man then came over and told the attacker to stop.
But then Cataldo said that the second man pushed him and pinned him against the window of the subway car before he was able to escape.
He explained that no one on the subway tried to help him.
He said he reported the incident to the NYPD, but the two men have not been found. Cataldo, an electrician, said his shoulder was hurt, but that he can still work.
