A pro-Trump immigrant from West Africa was pummeled and knocked to the ground over the weekend for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, Maryland police said.

Montgomery County police on Monday announced two arrests in connection with the alleged politically-motivated beat-down.

Atsu Nable told FOX5 DC that he was the one in the MAGA hat. He said the two men approached him Saturday in Germantown, outraged he was wearing it. He said one of the men struck him from behind, leaving him shocked.

“I was like, ‘Why are you doing this?’” Nable said. “They said, ‘No, the hat,’ and they started punching me on my head.”

Nable told the station he was proud to wear the hat as a long-time supporter of President Trump. He said he became a naturalized U.S. citizen after emigrating from Togo in West Africa in 2007, attended Trump campaign events and served as a volunteer at Trump’s inauguration.

Cops charged Jovan Crawford, 27, of Germantown, and Scott Duncan Roberson, 25, of D.C., with assaulting Nable. They were also charged with robbery, attempted theft and conspiracy.

  1. West African immigrants are a demographic that should be highly desirable. They usually know English, belong to churches with American branches, and tend to be socially conservative. They are the sort of people we should be recruiting to solve the labor shortage.
