A woman claimed to be the victim of a brutal attack in a Washington, D.C. restaurant Tuesday, saying she was called “racist” and violently attacked for supporting Trump.


Heather Childers, a Fox News host, said Tuesday there was “a woman brutally attacked just for supporting the president.”

“Police releasing this surveillance video, take a look, it shows two people who allegedly assaulted a Trump supporter in a D.C. restaurant. She says the fight broke out after she overheard them talking politics and decided to jump in, voicing her support for our president,” Childers said, describing the incident.

The alleged victim, a 29-year-old named Maricela, told Fox 5 DC, “I’m a Trump supporter. I stood by my views, then they called me a racist and then they started attacking me.”

She also described her injuries from the attack on March 16th.

“My blood vessels inside my eye burst. I got a fractured finger, a bruised knee and minor bruises all over my body,” she said.
