The Washington Post reported Friday that the four 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old were charged this week with felony destruction of property, among other offenses, after a review by prosecutors found the case does not qualify as a hate crime.

"Oh, they're absolutely playing to win and... I wish people who had written that story a few weeks ago saying Trump was pulling out of Virginia had come and spoken with me because we've had Trump paid staffers on the ground since August and nothing has changed," said Loudoun County Republican Committee Chairman Will Estrada.
