Florida man yells 'I voted for Trump' at black Starbucks barista


A Florida man, who was allegedly angry because his coffee was taking too long, was caught on video calling a Miami area Starbucks barista "trash," and also informing the entire coffee shop that he voted for President-elect Donald Trump.

Jorge de Cárdenas posted the video to his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon, stating “#trump supporter in #miami @Starbucks attacks & threatens patrons & staff bc coffee took too long, blames anti-white “discrimination.”
