It's a feast made to make America great again.

Bed-Stuy deli Olive Leaf Gourmet is serving up a Trump sandwich, packed full of baloney, Russian dressing and American cheese on white bread with a "small pickle" on the side.

The meal is "served by a Mexican or Muslim," according to a board advertising the sandwich outside the store on Throop Avenue and Halsey Street.

The offering started as a joke among store owner Omar Mubarez and workers Bassam Mubarez and Alfonso Guerrero, the employees said.

The owner was inspired by a Trump sandwich sign he saw online, he said, and he added his own spin to it.

“Originally we also wanted to put it on a plate surrounded by Mexican tortillas,” Omar Mubarez said of the $6 meal.

The bodega sells about 40 Trump sandwiches a day, workers said.

“It’s selling very good,“ Bassam Mubarez said. “People really like it, everybody’s walking by taking pictures of the sign."

While there are no immediate plans for sandwiches named after other presidential candidates, workers said they’re not ruling it out.

“He’s a person that exposed the hatred in this country,” the owner said of Trump, adding that he "absolutely will not" be voting for the Republican nominee.

There are no plans for a Hillary sandwich — though Mubarez said she won't get his vote either.
