Straphangers stood by and watched as three drunk white men repeatedly screamed “Donald Trump!” and hurled anti-Islam slurs Thursday at a Muslim Baruch College student before trying to rip her hijab off of her head on an East Side subway, the woman told the Daily News.

The paper details the woman’s accusations  for over 20 paragraphs, and then quotes a Muslim official about the increase of bias attacks since Donald Trump’s election:
