[A]nother liberal public school principal has cancelled the mock election at an elementary school in Centereach, New York.

Roger’s [sic] decision was made after it was reported that students in cafeteria were chanting ‘Trump! Trump! Trump! Rogers also stated that some students were getting into heated discussions about the politics they had heard on the television and that some were saying that they didn’t want Muslim’s in their school.
