Great Neck resident Jonathan Lifschutz says he got the plates bearing the surname of the U.S. president-elect from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles days after the Jan. 26 South Carolina primary.

The 50-year-old financial analyst and former Hillary Clinton donor says would-be thieves tried prying off the plates and he even caught one man red-handed.

He jokes the Empire State plates one day will be a collector's item -- in someone else's house.

So he's taken them off his car and put his old plates back on.
