BROOKLYN - A deli in Bedford-Stuyvesant is home to the "Trump Sandwich" named after the Republican nominee for president of the United States.

Sam Mubarez, of Olive Leaf Gourmet, says the sandwich consists of white bread, bologna, American cheese, Russian dressing and "little pickles."

"I think it's a good thing to poke fun at a political matter that is so broad, everybody is talking about it," says customer Jason Barnett. "You can take it how you want it. It's the same attitude Trump gives us."

The shop says it sells about 25 of the specialty sandwich each day for $6 each.

As an added bonus, each sandwich is served by either a Mexican or a Muslim – two groups that the candidate has been critical of during the election cycle.

The Halsey Street deli plans to keep it on the menu no matter who wins the election.
