Vancouver man claims his truck was set on fire by vandals because it had two pro-Trump stickers on the bumper
Reports state that the word 'Trump' appeared to be spray-painted in large white letters across the vehicle
A Vancouver man has claimed that his truck was vandalized with spray paint and was set on fire because he had multiple stickers supporting President Donald Trump on the vehicle, according to reports. The incident allegedly occurred outside a bar in Washington state.
The man, identified as Johnny MacKay, while speaking to KOIN-TV of Portland, said: "If you say anything that someone doesn't like, you are ultimately a target. You're automatically the enemy and they have to hurt you."
McKay told the news station that after having a few drinks at a bar in Vancouver, he decided to leave his truck overnight in a parking lot and took an Uber home instead. He said that he had left his vehicle under a light, hoping that it would discourage anyone from breaking in. However, when he came the other day to take his vehicle, he found it torched and said that the "tires were melted, the windows were shattered." Reports state that the word "Trump" appeared to be spray-painted in large white letters across the vehicle.

Randy Sanchagrin, who lives across the street from the bar, while talking to the station said that he ran outside of his home when he heard a loud explosion and saw the truck burst into flames. "All of a sudden I hear a loud bomb and the windows shake," he said, adding that he asked his sister to call the police.
MacKay believes that his vehicle was destroyed because of two stickers on its bumper in support of President Trump, and one of them read: "TRUMP 2020."
"I literally just put them on this weekend. If I would've known somebody would've taken politics this far -- I saw them, I thought they were funny and apparently somebody didn't get the joke," MacKay said who reportedly did not vote for Trump, however, he supports the Oval Office.
