A Trump supporter was just arrested for brandishing a firearm at an African American voter in a poorly conceived attempt to get him to vote for the Republican nominee.
The Florida man (of course) at a Lake Worth, Palm Beach County polling station got into an altercation at the Royal Palm Presbyterian Church. Police deputies on the scene quickly neutralized the situation and took the armed man into custody.
The younger man punched the older man, which prompted him to allegedly pull a weapon out.

This is exactly the kind of voter intimidation that Donald Trump has been calling on his supporters to do. Thankfully, the proper authorities were on the scene to make sure that everyone escaped unharmed, and that the Trump supporter was prevented from infringing on anybody else’s right to vote.
