In one 12-second video, the man then starts filming and challenges the police officer in the cruiser to “do it again,” as two other officers stand outside the vehicle.

“What, you can’t say ‘Trump 2020’ now?” the man says, cursing at the officer inside the car.

That’s when the officer grabs the microphone and says, “Trump 2020.” After the officers utters his support for the president over the cruiser’s speaker, the man calls him a “fascist.”

A separate 30-second video taken by Hines from a building across the street captured the officer continuing to prod passersby to post his pro-Trump rhetoric online.

“Take a picture, take a picture, take a video. Put it on your Facebook, put it on your YouTube,” the officer says over the loudspeaker. “Have some fun.” The officer then seems to call out the man who first confronted him, saying, “Tough guy, tough guy.”

Critics have questioned the impartiality of the city’s police since the Police Benevolent Association, New York’s largest police union, endorsed Trump in August, the first time in decades the group has backed a candidate for president. In response to a recent op-ed in Streetsblog New York questioning whether police could be trusted to keep peace in the city following the election, the union denounced the notion as “hysterical nonsense.” De Blasio recently backed the police, saying in a news conference last week that he believes New York officers “leave their politics at home and they go and do what has to be done to keep people safe.”

While some credited the NYPD for quickly suspending the officer in Saturday’s videos, critics called out the mayor and police for not doing to hold cops more accountable for letting politics bleed into policing.

“My tax dollars did not pay for NYPD officers to broadcast Trump 2020 from their cruiser,” one resident noted.
