Brianna Algazali, a student at the private college was assaulted after she was threatened on Twitter.
The attacker, Clifford Durant, threatened to smash her computer because of her allegiance to the GOP front-runner.
Clifford Durand, 18, posted a photo of an unsuspecting fellow student with a “Trump Make America Great Again” sticker on her laptop and asked his followers to share the image.
“7000 retweets and i’ll smash this b***h’s computer,” Durand wrote in the post, later claiming it was a “joke”.
The picture was retweeted more than 16,000 times within four hours of being posted online.
When 20-year-old Trump supporter Brianna Algazali was told that her picture was going viral she complained to the school’s public safety office.
Several witnesses at the Fresh Meadows campus watched as she confronted Durand.
“She asked him to take down the post and he said ‘make me’ ” , a student said.
Durant then struck her, hitting her in the throat. He admitted as much in one of dozens of tweets he sent before his account was suspended by the social media giant.
