WEST ROGERS PARK — Two Muslim women, a mother and daughter, were harassed in West Rogers Park Thursday by a woman who called them ISIS and attempted to get into their car, according to a video of the incident posted on Facebook. 

The video shows the two women seated in a car when the woman walks up and tries to open two of the car's doors. The woman then appears to try to break the car's side view mirror when the mother seated in the car gets out to confront the woman.

The attacker then yells "F--- you, ISIS," and "You're ISIS, b----."

The mother gets back into the car, when the woman walks back up to it and spits on the car window before kicking it, according to video posted to the Documenting Oppression Against Muslims Facebook page.

The daughter, seated in the driver's seat and filming the incident, says "What did we ever do to you?"

Her mother, meanwhile, says on camera that woman's bigotry was emboldened by Republican President Donald Trump, who has called for a ban on Muslims seeking to immigrate to the United States.

"That's what you get from Donald Trump!"  she says as the harasser walks away. "Encouraging crazy people!"

The victim the video did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
