Student Trump supporter attacked at Woodside High School

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (KTVU) - A student who is a Donald Trump supporter was attacked at Woodside High School Wednesday.

The family tells KTVU's Heather Holmes, the female student had expressed support for Donald Trump on her Instagram account on the night of the election saying "I hope he wins." 

During a break at school the following day, the student says she was randomly attacked. The girl's father said the attack against his daughter was politically motivated. 

Cellphone video shows another female student approaching the girl and taking her glasses off before she starts hitting the girl in the head repeatedly saying "F*** you bit**."

The video shows some students sitting nearby, some laughing, as the attack occurred.

Another female student ended up coming to help yelling, "let go of her, what's wrong with you?"

The attacked student got up after the attack and said, "Who do you think you are." The attacker responded by stating her name.

The family of the girl who was attacked says they took their daughter to the emergency room. They are terrified of letting their daughter return to school because they are worried about more random attacks. 

The victim's father tells Heather Holmes this is not he America he knows. "It makes me sick to my stomach that someone can't voice their opinion publicly... it's really a shame," said her father. He added his family has received threats following the incident. 

Meanwhile, protests have broken out throughout the school.

Some students are supporting the victim while others support the attacker.
