Cops and anti-Trump protesters clashed in Manhattan on Sunday, leading to at least three arrests.

Video captured by The Post shows the cops shoving protesters and blocking their path on the sidewalk at West 24th Street and 10th Avenue.

“Stop! Stop pushing me!” one protester shouts as police barricade the street.

Eyewitnesses told The Post three people were arrested.

A later clip shot by The Post shows protesters hurling insults at cops.

“It’s f–king New York City. There are people getting f–king raped and murdered,” one protester taunts. “Go fight real crime, you f–king pathetic p–sies.”

“You tell people to get on the fucking sidewalk, then you push us off the fucking sidewalk,” another says. “This is America, right?”

Anti-Trump demonstrators had gathered at Madison Square Park to confront pro-Trump caravans crisscrossing the New York region ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election.

The anti-Trump group marched to the West Side Highway, before dispersing after concluding the Trump caravans were likely avoiding Manhattan.

One group of truck-driving Trump supporters stopped traffic for an unspecified amount of time on New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway, video posted to Twitter showed.

NYPD was not immediately able to provide further details.
