NY Man Who Was Beaten For Wearing a MAGA Hat Receives a Care Package from Trump
The New York man who says he was viciously beaten by a group of thugs last month for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, received a new MAGA hat from President Trump this week, along with a letter wishing him a speedy recovery
Jahangir “John” Turan, the owner of a New York City art gallery, said he was jumped on by a group of about 15 teens who yelled obscenities like “fuck Trump” while slamming his head against a post and stomping on him. He reportedly suffered a broken eye socket.
Turan said he received a FedEx box Thursday with the hat signed by the president and a letter from the Trump/Pence 2020 campaign slamming the alleged assault as “unwarranted, disturbing and gruesome.”
“Any physical assault on any person expressing their First Amendment Rights is completely unacceptable, and we were deeply disturbed to hear of this senseless act,” the letter reads. “President Trump and Vice President Pence work every day to improve the lives of ALL Americans — regardless of who they voted for,” it continues. “The violent and criminal act against you and your political beliefs was wrong. As you recover, be reminded of the fact that millions of Americans have you in their thoughts.”
