A man attacked a Muslim employee of an airline in News York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. Reportedly the man kicked the female Muslim airline employee and shouted obscenities and told her that President Donald Trump “will get rid of all of you.”
According to the Queen’s District Attorney’s Office, Robin Rhodes was waiting for his flight to Massachusettes when he saw Delta airline’s employee Rabeeya Khan, who wears a hijab, sitting in her office. Rhodes approached her while abusing her verbally. Rhodes then punched the door, which hit the back of Rabeeya’s chair. She asked Rhodes what she had done to him and Rhodes replied, “You did nothing.” He then cursed at her and kicked her in the leg.
As another person tried to calm him down, Rabeeya ran out of the office. Rhodes followed her, got down on his knees and began to bow down in imitation of a Muslim praying, again shouted obscenities and said “Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You see what happens,” an eyewitness told.
