A Muslim teen who claimed she was a harassed by a trio of Trump supporters on a New York City subway train admitted to police that she made the whole thing up.
Fox News‘ Trace Gallagher reports:
“Yasmin Seweid, 18, was arrested by the NYPD on Wednesday and charged with obstructing governmental administration and filing a false report.
Gallagher reported that Seweid claimed that drunken young white men accosted her on the subway on December 1.
She said they shouted “Trump! Trump!” and called her a “terrorist,” as they tried to steal her hijab.
“Get the hell out of the country!” she claimed they yelled at her. “You don’t belong here!”
Gallagher said that when cops tried to confirm her story by looking at surveillance video and having her describe her assailants, inconsistencies began to appear.
When she was confronted about the inconsistencies, she admitted she made up the whole story to get attention because she was having issues with her family.”
