A nine-year-old boy has been banned from wearing his Donald Trump "Make American Great Again" hat after school leaders said it was causing a safety concern on campus.

The Fresno United School District has banned Logan Autry from wearing the autographed hat while at school.

For three straight days, the third grader wore the hat to class. But each day, more and more classmates began confronting him at recess.

On Thursday, he left class early because school leaders said the hat was causing a safety concern on campus. They told him to take the hat off and not wear it again at school.

"They told me to take my hat off because it brings negative emotions to the other children who don't like him," Autry said.

Autry says he supports the controversial candidate and says asking him not to wear the hat is a violation of his free speech.

"They were saying they didn't like Donald Trump, they were saying he was stupid, I had to explain to them what Donald Trump was actually doing," he said.
