“USA” chants broke out Thursday morning in New York as former President Donald Trump made a campaign stop with union workers.

Trump squeezed in a meeting with members of the Teamsters union at a construction site in Manhattan around 6 a.m. before attending his trial on alleged falsified business records relating to payment for a nondisclosure agreement with former porn star Stormy Daniels.

Video shows crowds of union workers, some wearing neon vests and hard hats, chanting “USA,” “We want Trump” and “We love Trump,” as the former president can be seen signing hats and engaging with those lining the streets.

Trump addressed reporters during his appearance, praising Teamsters union workers who he “built a lot of buildings with.” The former president expressed confidence that “lifelong Democrats” in New York would vote for him in the 2024 election.

“I think these maybe were Democrats, but for me, they’re a Republican,” Trump told Fox News. “There’s not a Democrat in there.”

President Joe Biden secured an endorsement from North America’s Building Trades Union Wednesday at an event in a Washington hotel ballroom, The Associated Press (AP) reported. Biden said Trump “looks down on” union workers, stating that the former president “never built a damn thing.” (RELATED: Gaffe After Gaffe After Gaffe’: Fox Fox Host Explodes At Panelist Over Biden’s ‘Frustrating’ Blunders)

As Biden is free to campaign, Trump has been tied up in Manhattan court where he faces 34 felony charges by New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
