Two Maryland women have been charged with a hate crime after being accused of burning a "make America great again" sign.
Princess Anne police charged D'Asia R. Perry and Joy M. Shuford with second-degree arson and committing a hate crime, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Deputy Chief Fire Marshal Caryn L. McMahon said the arson was committed "with discrimination or malice toward a particular group, or someone's belief."
"The intentional burning of these political signs, along with the beliefs, religious views and race of this political affiliation, directly coincides with the victim," a police officer wrote in charging documents.
The sign supporting President Trump has hung outside a sporting goods store since September. Jamie Wink, the store owner's son, said the sign has been good for business.
The arson caused $800 in damage, the fire marshal's office said.
The 19-year-old women were released on a $20,000 bond.
