Two New York City sanitation workers were caught on film screaming at a driver they were blocking and threatening deportation while invoking GOP front-runner Donald Trump, according to the New York Daily News.
The video shows a black car stopped behind a trash truck blocking a street. When the car tries to get around the truck one of the workers stands in front of the driver, blocking the car and daring the driver to hit him. The confrontation happened at about 7:30 a.m. on Clinton Avenue in Brooklyn.
“Behave or you’ll be deported,” one of the workers said.
“Where’s Trump? Where’s Trump when you need him?” the other worker chimed in.
Before the confrontation could escalate further, the driver backed up and drove around the truck on the other side.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
