Third grader claims school violated his First Amendment rights regarding Trump hat

(NBC) -

A California third grader has been banned from "Making America great again."

The Fresno Unified School District has banned 9-year-old Logan Autry from wearing his Donald Trump autographed "Make America great again" hat while at school.

For three days straight the third grader wore the hat to class. 

But each day, more and more classmates began confronting him at recess.

On Thursday, he left school early because a school leader said the hat was causing a safety concern on campus.

They told him to take the hat off and not wear it at school again.

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