A Danish tourist was allegedly mugged for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Jannich Andersen, 18, was entering a Manhattan subway station on Thursday when a stranger confronted him over the hat, police said.

Andersen said that the man told him he "couldn't leave with the hat,” and took it off Andersen’s head,” The New York Post reported.

Andersen says he grabbed it back and the man followed him and snatched it again.

While Andersen and the alleged thief struggled, the robber's accomplice brandished a knife.

Andersen says he then let go of the hat.

Andersen said he bought the hat, which displayed Donald’s Trump’s campaign slogan, "as a joke."
