A Navy veteran living in Florida has lost everything he and his family owned after his house was torched and tagged with anti-Trump graffiti. And just before Christmas! Luckily, no one was home during the fire.

Veteran’s home vandalized, torched
There are lots of questions surrounding a fire that gutted a home on Johnson Street in Plant City overnight.
Along with heavy damage, anti-Trump graffiti was sprayed on the house, inside and out. The family who lives there was spending the night with relatives, but Navy veteran Matthew Smith says his home was targeted because he is a Donald Trump supporter.
“It’s not what I expected out of America,” says Smith. “It should be us figuring problems out together.”
Smith flies three flags in front of his house: the American flag, the POW flag, and the Navy flag.
“We supported Trump from when he started running for office,” says Matthew’s wife Brittany. “We never made it public. We never had a sign in our backyard, so no one really knew we were pro Trump.”
But Matthew says he’s been very active on Facebook, with posts supporting Trump, the Second Amendment, and other conservative causes.
Here’s a video report:
Let’s hope they catch the people who did this quickly.
