The Trump Effect does not seem to be subsiding. From folks calling police on others who they feel do not belong or fit some profile, to the outright xenophobia, it is still at a crescendo.
Xenophobic, racist lawyer in Trump Effect mode furious at Spanish speaking employees
A lawyer, a man who should know better, went into "Trump Effect" mode as he berated Spanish speaking deli employees as he threatened to call ICE on them.
The husband of the woman who captured the video made the following Facebook post.
So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming !
They where on there lunch time and ordering there food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this asshole jumps in and started to call the waiter and my wife and her best friend all types of names and threatened to call I.C.E on them and the employees !!!!
What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee. I wish someone tells me I can’t speak in my native language ! First of all they wasn’t talking to you !! Asshole !
My country !! Haha ?
I love the way people are just throwing that world around lately !!
If you love this country this much ! Why don’t you put on uniform and protect it !!
If he was so offended because the waiter was speak in Spanish only because of a native person spoke to him in Spanish, why don’t he start waitering and he won’t have that issue and family stop getting Spanish nannies and stop getting Spanish people to farm and .........
You know where I’m getting !!
So please stop !! Because in the end you need them ! But what you need to do is stop trying to control us ! Slavery stopped a long time ago !!
