A college student was arrested after allegedly bringing a backpack full of weapons into Trump Tower on Monday.
Alexander Wang, 19, said he was a Trump supporter and likes to study at the building. But his bag set off the metal detector, and he was charged with unlawful possession of fireworks and two counts of weapons possession for the hunting knife and garotte.
He'd brought the bag before
Wang, who studies finance at Baruch College, said he had carried his bag and everything in it into Trump Tower 10 times before his arrest.
Police found more explosives in his dorm, but no guns or any connection to terrorist groups.
Trump supporters were quick to characterize the incident as an assassination attempt.
