A truck owner who stopped for a drink in Vancouver, Washington says that his truck was set on fire because he put some pro-Trump stickers on it. “If you say anything that someone doesn’t like, you are ultimately a target,” Johnny MacKay told KOIN-TV of Portland, Oregon.
After having a few drinks at the Garage Bar and Grill, MacKay said he decided to take an Uber home and leave his truck overnight in the parking lot. According to Fox News, MacKay even left his truck under lights to dissuade anyone from attempting to break in. Of course, he never expected his truck to be set on fire because of his pro-Trump stickers.
Randy Sanchagrin, who lives across the street from the bar, noticed the truck was on fire around 2:30 am. “All of a sudden I hear a loud bomb and the windows shake,” Sanchagrin said. He went outside and saw the truck in flames. After that, he sprinted inside, had his sister call 911 and went back outside to see if someone was inside, according to the report by KOIN-TV.
When MacKay returned the next morning to retrieve his truck, he said he found it in ashes. “All of a sudden I saw the tires were melted, the windows were shattered, and I was just in shock,” MacKay said. He also noticed the word “Trump” had been spray painted in white on the side of the truck as some kind of message. MacKay said he has just put the pro-Trump stickers on his truck earlier last weekend. “I literally just put them on this weekend,” MacKay, who did not vote for Trump but supports the Oval Office, told the station. “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.”

“If you say anything that someone doesn’t like you are ultimately a target,” he said. “You’re automatically the enemy and they have to hurt you.” MacKay, who is an Uber driver, also has a message for the person who took away his source of income. “(They) need help,” he said. “Whether it was from drugs or a mental condition, this person needs to get help. If they blow up at this, who knows.”
