A 14-year-old boy was hospitalized after being viciously attacked by students for wearing a Trump 2020 hat. The attack occurred on a school bus, in Hamilton County, Florida, on November 21.

The boy, identified only as Tyler, was hospitalized with head contusions after being attacked by five students — three black females and two black males.

Tyler’s mother believes the assault is a hate crime. “Plain and simple this was a hate crime and attempted murder according to the state of Florida since it was over three kids that jumped him and these kids are older and larger,” Tyler’s mother tweeted.

She wrote,”The police is not considering it a hate crime because everyone that jumped on him were related. Yeah, I don’t get it either. So if 5 white kids, all related, jumped a black child, no one would be screaming #HateCrime??? Double standards.”

Tyler bought the Trump 2020 hat and was proud to wear to school until he got bullied for it.

“To be clear, my son bought his #Trump2020 hat with his own money at the flea market a few weeks ago. He was proud to wear it. He wore it to School, but due to immediate bullying he put it away & didn’t wear it to school again, sadly the damage was already done & was now a target,” she wrote.

“From that point on he was steadily getting messed with. He was getting hit, tripped & verbally abused on the bus, but it all came to a head yesterday on his bus ride home,” she added.

Tyler was examined by nurses who discovered older bruise marks on his body with the new injuries. “He didn’t tell us about the bullying, but they took it to a new level yesterday and we are just now learning what he was going through,” said Tyler’s mother.
