A 67-year-old Hispanic Army veteran named Ricardo Garcia bought a “Make America Great Again” hat months ago when Donald Trump announced he was running for president. But he never thought he’d get assaulted for wearing it. But he did- by a Hillary supporter.

It happened while Garcia was shopping at Sam’s Club in Brandon, Florida.

Ricardo Garcia told WTVT in Tampa that he was in the meat department of the store when he had to sneeze.

A customer said, “Bless you.” Another man near him stared at him and said, “I can not give you a blessing, because you’re wearing that stupid hat.”

Garcia asked, “What’s wrong with the hat?”

When the man said it was a Trump hat, Garcia said he jokingly told him the hat was his, not Trump’s.

“(He said) Ah, you go for Trump, I don’t like it. I said, well you can go for Hillary and I don’t like that, but that’s the way it is,” says Garcia.

He says 37-year-old Patrick Mickens was upset about Garcia’s “Make America Great Again” hat, supporting Trump. Mickens reportedly tried to pick a fight. Garcia says he tried to just walk away.

“I grabbed my grocery cart, and I turned around and my back was to him and slowly, suddenly he was like pow! and hit me right here,” said Garcia as he pointed to a bruised eye.

“My hat went down on the ground, my glasses were sideways. I looked at him and saw him standing there looking at me like, ‘What do you want?'” said Garcia.

The store manager was alerted to the incident and 911 was called, Western Journalism reports.

Officers from the Hillsborough County Police Department arrived on the scene, where they located 36-year-old Patrick Marcus Mickens hiding in another aisle of the store.

After interviewing Garcia and Mickens, officers arrested Mickens and charged him with battery on an elderly person.

Mickens was later released on bond.

Garcia, who is originally from Puerto Rico, said he was privileged and honored to live in the U.S. “We should not be afraid to be in our country,” he said. “I wear this hat because this is what we need, to make America great.”

A veteran, Garcia served in the Army for more than 20 years. He says he put his life in danger more than once. He says being treated this way hurts.

Liberals are pure scum.
