An apparent confrontation between a man in a vehicle and another man on a sidewalk holding a flag supportive of President Donald Trump likely did not end the way the driver intended.
The undated video, which was tweeted by Donald Trump Jr., among others, shows the man in the vehicle exchanging words with the president’s supporter.
At one point the man holding the flag appears to jump back while the man in the vehicle accelerates as if trying to get away.
Warning: Strong language

But a short distance later, the driver struck a light pole, which seemed to disable his vehicle.
“That’s what you get! All that hate! All that hate!”, a man off-camera can be heard saying.
“All that hate! All that hate! Look what it did to you, man?”, the off-camera male says.
Other posts featuring the clip claim that the driver spit on the man on the sidewalk, but that is not readily visible in the video.
The person taking the video approaches the vehicle to show extensive damage to the driver’s-side hood area from the light pole.
“All that hate,” another man says. “It’s unfortunate that it happened but…”
A moment later, the video pans to a police vehicle pulling in behind the damaged vehicle.
“Oh, and now you got the cops here,” another male says.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign is continuing to pursue allegations of fraud and voting irregularities in a number of states, while Democratic rival Joe Biden is pressing President Trump to concede after the media designated him “president-elect” last weekend.
On Sunday, attorney Sidney Powell, who has recently joined the Trump campaign’s legal team, told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo she and others have allegedly uncovered evidence from whistleblowers and other sources indicating “substantial sums of money” were paid to “family members of state officials” who purchased Dominion Voting System software, which was used in electronic machines in several states on Election Day.
Besides “kickbacks” and remuneration for family members, officials in states that bought the systems were given what she called “election insurance,” suggesting that by using the software they were guaranteed a victory, Powell claimed.
“It’s really an insidious, corrupt system and I can’t tell you how livid I am with our government for not paying attention to complaints even brought by Democrats, about the systems,” Powell said.
As for Biden, he plans on addressing the nation on the economy on Monday, the Washington Post reported. The paper did not elaborate on what Biden is expected to say.
Economists at Brean Capital said in a note to clients, reported by Axios, that Biden’s biggest challenge will be finding common-ground Congress — if he has to contend with a GOP-controlled Senate.
Key will be determining whether “policymakers in Congress can extend the income bridge” and prevent “a second-round negative impact on the economy from the deterioration in state and local budgets,” Brean Capital said.
New economic woes stem from states reimposing mandatory business closures and partial lockdowns as COVID-19 infections rise again in several states.
