A man living in Vancouver, Washington, had his truck spray-painted and torched because of pro-Trump bumper stickers.
Johnny Mackay left his truck overnight at a bar after taking an Uber home. However, when he went to retrieve it the next morning, it was destroyed.
“It took me by surprise,” Mackay said to USA Today. “It blew me away.”
Yet when other witnesses said that they saw “f**k Trump” spray-painted on the side, Mackay realized that it was a targeted attack. He had two pro-Trump stickers on the back, saying “Trump 2020” and “Trump: Keep America Great.”

MacKay also spoke with “Fox & Friends,” saying that the people responsible have not been found, but that a targeted attack seems like the only option.
“That’s the only thing I can think of,” said MacKay. “I only had four other stickers on there. One was an NRA sticker, one was my Army decal, one was an Igloo sticker and I can’t remember what the other one was.”

While the Washington native did not vote for Trump in the last election, he supports the president now and plans to vote in 2020. Mackay does not believe that people should vandalize other’s property because of a difference in views.
“People just need to relax, the world is not gonna stop turning because somebody is in office that you don’t like,” said Mackay.
