Police say a man was assaulted with a crowbar in the parking lot of a New Jersey restaurant for wearing a Donald Trump T-shirt.
   Bloomfield police told NorthJersey.com and nj.com a 62-year-old man was walking on a city street last Wednesday, wearing a T-shirt that featured the Republican presidential nominee standing in front of an American flag.
   Police say a motorist questioned him about his "Trump for President" shirt, cursed at him, then got out of the vehicle and attacked him. They say he was struck several times with a crowbar and suffered injuries to his arms, hands and thighs; he was treated at the scene.
   Police say the male suspect fled before officers arrived. They didn't identify the victim.
