Gregory Timm, the 27-year-old Florida man accused of intentionally running his van into a tent where elderly Trump supporters were registering people to vote, reportedly admitted to cops that he purposely ran into the tent because he "does not like President Trump."
A partially redacted police report, which was obtained by several Jacksonville news stations on Tuesday, suggests what Jacksonville Major Lenny Curry declared: The crime was motivated by political hate.

According to the report, Timm showed police a video that he took of the Trump volunteers prior to attacking them.
"The suspect then showed another video to us of him and driving towards the tent with the victims standing in front of the tent. The video cuts out prior to him actually striking the tent," the report states.
"The suspect was upset that the video ended before 'the good part' as he described it," the report continues.
"The suspect advised that he does not like President Trump and that is part of [REDACTED]. He advised the other reason was because 'it's like someone s**tting on your grave' as the other reason," the report goes on to say.
Timm was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years of age or older, one count of criminal mischief, and driving with a suspended license. He remains in the Duval County Jail after a judge set his bail at more than $500,000.
