SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A California man says a stranger hurled expletives and set his truck on fire after seeing a pro-Donald Trump sticker on the bumper.

Hao Lee had taken his 2-year-old son fishing on a pleasant November afternoon in Sacramento. He parked his white Dodge Ram truck with a pair of Trump stickers on the bumper along Garden Highway.

"About a couple hours into fishing I heard someone yelling out 'F' Trump," Lee told KTXL.

Lee and his son were only about 50 yards from where his truck was parked, near the edge of the river. Their peaceful fishing trip was about to take an abrupt and scary turn.

"After that I heard glass breaking, I called 9-1-1 and a couple of minutes later I saw smoke," he said.

Lee said his first concern was the safety of his son, so he decided to stay put, near the water. When the voices and commotion were gone, Lee approached his truck. But it was too late. Flames were shooting out the windows. The truck was a complete loss.

"I didn't think anyone would do this kind of stuff over bumper stickers. It's not right," he said.

Arson investigators with the Sacramento City Fire Department processed the scene for clues.

Police didn't say what, if anything was found in the torched vehicle. They are asking anyone who saw anything to call (916) 443-HELP.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Criminals supporting a criminal.
    Remember the Baltimore Riots? The rioters were given “room to destroy”. Do you think Trump supporters would be allowed to riot rape loot and pillage without being charged?

      You are the reason I am ready for the second civil war.

      People like you are the reason we will end up there. We have a crime committed against someone who doesn’t agree with you politically and you, like the rest of the left, suggest it was him or something else even though you know, just like the rest of us, that this was a rabid hillary/obama supporter.
      Screw you. You are the trash. It’s un-American to not accept different opinions, dont you know trash?
      I’ll see your unarmed ingorant a ss on the battlefield.
