Donald Trump is not only encouraging violence at his political rallies, he is also inspiring violence across the country. Trump's hateful rhetoric is fueling hate and violence across the country from sanitation workers in Brooklyn yelling racial slurs at a motorist and telling him to "be deported" to men in Boston who allegedly urinated and beat up a Latino homeless man in Trump's name.

Think Progress is compiling a "hate map" of violence committed in the country in Trump's name and we took some of the worst incidents caught on camera and put them into a minute-long video. Watch to see what the rise of Trump is actually doing to the nation.
