Woman Brutally Assaulted in D.C. Restaurant After Professing to be a Trump Supporter

Two African-American women

The largely unreported incidents of violence against Trump supporters that spiked in the days and weeks after the 2016 election have waned, but there are still ugly anti-Trump altercations occasionally hitting the news.

The latest such incident took place in Washington D.C., where police are searching for a pair of black females suspected of brutally attacking a 29-year-old woman who professed to be a supporter of the president.

"This was a nasty attack," reported Fox 5 DC's Linda Watts. "The police report is even calling it a suspected hate crime."

The assault took place at around 1 a.m. on March 16 at Surfside, a popular taco shop in Northwest D.C.

According to the police report, the victim, named Maricela, said that she was involved in a conversation with the two women and a man who was with them, and at one point she declared her support for President Donald Trump.

“I’m a Trump supporter. I stood by my views, then they called me a racist and then they started attacking me,” Maricela told FOX 5.

She claimed the two suspects assaulted her despite their male friend trying to step in to stop them. The victim said she took herself to Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland for treatment of her injuries, the police report said.

“After it happened, I got a bruised right eye," Maricela told Fox 5. "My blood vessels inside my eye burst. I got a fractured finger ... a bruised knee and minor bruises all over my body.”

All that for merely saying she supports her president.
