President Donald Trump sent one of his supporters a signed MAGA hat after the 16-year-old was harassed at a Texas Whataburger for wearing the signature red cap, which was captured in a viral video.

Kino Jimenez, 30, was arrested last week after allegedly stealing Hunter Richard’s hat and throwing a drink at him.
“This is gonna go right in my f**king fireplace, b*tch,” Jimenez said to Richard, which can be heard in the video.
Jimenez was fired from his job in reaction to his alleged harassment of Richard.
Donald Trump Jr. promised to give Richard a signed hat last week when he saw the incident on Twitter.
Even now with the national spotlight on him, Richard has not backed down on his support for President 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.
