          Elle says that after learning Donald Trump was elected President in 2016, she was upset with the results and “threw back beers like crazy.”

          “I was very intoxicated,” she says of the night. “On my way home, I was planning on stopping and purchasing some drugs.”

          Elle, who is biracial, claims that she met up with two black guys, and the three were attacked by three white “boys.” She says they were throwing rocks, calling them names and yelling, “make America great again.”

          “I went to the police. I lied to those detectives about the location and the time that I was attacked. I ended up changing my story a couple of times because I didn’t want them to find out how intoxicated I was and that I was planning on buying drugs,” says Elle, who was 23 at the time. “Because I lied, the police just didn’t believe me from the get-go. These detectives had the nerve to tell me that they didn’t think I was black enough to be attacked.”
