High School Student Bullied For Wearing Donald Trump Hat

Connor Mullen, 16, is receiving criticism for wearing a Donald Trump "Make America Great Again" hat to school. Mullen shared that a teacher made fun of the hat saying "Thank God you can't vote." Mullen said he won't stop wearing the hat because he supports Trump, but says that students have been bullying him for wearing it.

In March, Mullen met Trump at a campaign rally who inspired him to either join the military or work in law enforcement.

Mullen said, “I like the slogan, I like Donald Trump, and I like hats." According to the Portland Press Herald, “Two students were seen at the school Monday wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ T-shirts, in an apparent show of support for Mullen."

Ken Kunin, the Superintendent, said “This is a beautiful problem to have in a school because it’s a chance to practice democracy. You don’t all of a sudden wake up and know how to act in a democracy. You learn how to act in a democracy.”
