President Donald Trump gifted a San Antonio teen with a new autographed “Make America Great Again” hat after his first one was ripped from his head while he dined at a Texas Whataburger.

The July incident was captured in a now-viral video when Kino Jimenez, 30, allegedly stole 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s hat before throwing a drink on him and said, “This is gonna go right in my f**king fireplace, b*tch.” (RELATED: Man Who Ripped MAGA Hat From Kid’s Head Arrested For Theft)

Jimenez was later arrested and subsequently fired from his job.

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted an article from The Daily Caller and offered his assistance in replacing Richard’s MAGA hat with a new autographed one.

Richard reiterated his support for Trump. “I support my president, and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” he told WOAI-TV.
