Man's Truck Gets Burnt Out Because Of Pro-Trump Stickers

When Johnny Mackay left his truck in a car park on Sunday, he definitely didn't expect to come back to it in the state it was in - the truck had been vandalised and burnt out, something that he claims was because of his pro-Trump stickers.

Johnny had two 'Trump 2020' stickers on his truck, and now his vehicle has been destroyed and defaced with the word 'TRUMP' spray painted in white across the side.

He told Portland's KOIN 6: "I literally just put those on this weekend, just put them on. If I would have known someone would have taken their politics this far... I thought they were funny.

"Apparently, somebody did not get the joke."

Johnny decided to leave his truck in a bar's car park after having a few beers inside, opting to be sensible and get a taxi home and collect his truck the next morning.

The next day, he went back to get his car own to find it completely torched, the tyres melted and the windows smashed in along with an anti-Trump message spray painted on its side.

Johnny continued: "All of a sudden I saw the tyres were melted, the windows were shattered, and I was just in shock.

"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."

Johnny said he actually parked his car under a light in order to deter anyone from trying to break into it.

However, when he went outside and saw the truck in flames. After that, he had to run quickly to get someone to call the emergency services.

"By the time I ran back to the street it was so bad there was no getting close to it," he added.

Luckily, Johnny wasn't injured when the truck was burnt out, but he has lost a source of income due to previously using it for his job as an Uber driver.

He went on to say he didn't actually vote for President Trump back in 2016, and only started supporting him once he was into his term.

Johnny then sent out a message for whoever may have damaged his car, saying: "(They) need help. Whether it was from drugs or a mental condition, this person needs to get help. If they blow up at this, who knows."

Careful on the roads out there, LADs...
