A New Jersey man was beaten with a crowbar because he was wearing a Donald Trump shirt, authorities say.
The 62-year-old male victim told police that he was walking on Bloomfield street last week when a man in an older-model, gray vehicle began to harass him about his shirt, which read “Trump for President: Make America Great Again,” alongside a picture of the Republican presidential nominee.
Police said the man followed the victim to a Friendly’s Restaurant and approached him in the parking lot with a crowbar in hand.
He apparently struck him several times, fleeing before police arrived.
The victim, who was not named, was treated at the scene for injuries to his forearms, hands and thighs
