Brandon Hines, 34, watched the concerning scene from his apartment and his roommate recorded it.

He said the cop’s started to say Trump 2020 when a pedestrian gave the cop the middle finger because their car was in the crosswalk.

‘We went to the window just to make sure whoever he was talking to was safe. And this is not the first time we had an issue of cops using the bullhorn in the neighborhood,’ Hines said to the New York Daily News.

‘I’m just your average gay black guy but I’ve been stopped and frisked twice on my block. This is a predominantly black community and there is obviously that beef between cops and the community . . . It goes back a long long time.

‘It’s been a whole summer of this but this is the first time I heard the police officers endorsing or say they were going to be voting for Trump 2020,’ he added.

‘Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs. It is essential for New Yorkers to trust their Police,’ Shea said.

The Police Benevolent Association, New York’s largest police union endorsed Trump for re-election in August.

However the NYPD prohibits on-duty cops from ‘endorsing political candidates or publicly expressing personal views and opinions concerning the merits of any political party or candidate for office.’
