A man says he was attacked by two men while riding the New York City subway because he was wearing a Donald Trump hat.
Corey Cataldo, 24, of the Bronx, said he was riding the uptown 5 train from Union Square to Morris Park Friday, when another rider on the subway spotted his “Make America Great Again” hat and apparently didn’t like it.
He spoke exclusively on television for Eyewitness News reporter Lucy Yang.
Cataldo explained that the situation heated up as the train got close to the 138th Street/Grand Concourse station.
“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.”
