A 12-year-old boy in US was attacked on a school bus for wearing President Donald Trump’s signature hat.

Gavin, a sixth-grade student, was bullied and physically assaulted by Parkway School District peers in Missouri for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.

“At one point, he (another student) just got so frustrated he pushed me and then he kept hitting me and backing me up by the window of the bus, and so I just had to push him out,” Gavin told a local news channel.

Gavin was suspended after the incident, though he was the one who was attacked.

Outraged by the incident, Christina Cortina, the mother of the student said that she feels like her son was targeted and punished.

“As a parent it’s so upsetting. I feel like my son was made an example of, it was a tricky situation, it was politically charged,” Christina Cortina, the mother of the boy said”.
