Students at New York University say they are forced to keep their support of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump a secret for fear of coming under attack by fellow students or professors, the New York Post reports.

"Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body," junior Dylan Perera told the Post. "They're afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically hurt."

One student "freaked out and started yelling and screaming in my face, calling me a racist and a fascist" when she learned of Perera's Trump support, he said. "It was impossible to even have a conversation."

Another student said he was outed by a professor on Friday, after specifically telling the professor in an email not to do so.

"He was explaining what platitudes are to the class, and he brought up Trump as an example. How him saying, 'I'm great,' is a platitude," the student told the Post. "It got a big laugh from the class and then he looked right at me and said, 'Sorry, I had to get one in.'"

There are about 30 members of an informal Trump group on the liberal campus of 57,000 students. The total number of Trump fans isn't known because no one has dared form an official club.

"It can get hostile," one student said of Facebook discussions. "They'll usually throw around words like 'racist' or 'bigot' about Trump and then call the students trying to defend him 'delusional.'"
