“I was sitting down in the library in my school and a very big man wearing a Trump shirt walks up behind me. I start to turn around but before I can see who’s there, a hand is on my head… attempting to push my hijab back.”
The Muslim student at the University of New Mexico, who spoke to BBC Trending, says she ducked out of the way of her attacker.
“I told him that he has every right to believe what he wants and he can say whatever he wants but as soon as he puts his hands on me, then things get serious,” she says. “He then walked away saying ‘I’m going to sit down before you throw a grenade at me.'”
