*A uniformed Miami police officer who went viral for wearing a “Trump 2020” face mask at a polling site on Tuesday will be disciplined. 

Miami police chief Jorge Colina hasn’t decided how to punish Officer Daniel Ubeda, the Miami Herald reports. Twitter users are accusing of Ubeda of voter intimidation over the now-viral image posted online.

In the photo, Ubeda is seen wearing the pro-Trump mask that says “No more bullsh*t.” He was allegedly in line to vote at the time.

“The city of Miami and the Miami Police Department do not support or endorse any candidate,” said Miami Mayor Francis Súarez in a press conference on Tuesday, noting that Ubeda’s “actions have violated departmental policy and he will be disciplined.”

“A police officer is supposed to be impartial,” Suárez added. “Irrespective of who the person was, whatever sign it would have been, it would’ve been problematic.”

The person who snapped the photo was Steve Simeonidis, chairman of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party.

“He may have been going to vote. But he was in full uniform with the mask and a gun. That’s voter intimidation,” Simeonidis said, adding that Ubeda “laughed it off’ when asked about his Trump mask. 

Deputy Police Chief Ron Papier claims Ubeda will face “appropriate disciplinary action.”

“Obviously this is a clear violation of our department policy regarding campaigning while on duty,” Papier said. “Additionally, the mask has offensive language, which is also a violation of department policy.”

In a statement on Twitter, the department wrote, “We are aware of the photograph being circulated of a Miami Police officer wearing a political mask in uniform. This behavior is unacceptable, a violation of departmental policy, and is being addressed immediately.”

*Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the officer who was shot in the leg while carrying out a search warrant at Breonna Taylor’s apartment, seems to think that because none of the officers knelt on her neck as in the George Floyd police killing, that race shouldn’t be a factor in their case.

Speaking out for the first time exclusively to ABC News and The Courier Journal in Louisville Tuesday, Mattingly said, “This is not relatable to George Floyd. This is nothing like that.”

Mattingly has been accused of raiding Taylor’s house under the guise of a narcotics investigation. The officers claimed that they were executing a late-night “no-knock'” warrant. Mattingly said he was shot at by Taylor’s boyfriend, after which the police opened fire which resulted in Taylor’s death.

None of the officers have been charged with the death of Taylor, and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is under fire from critics.

“It’s not a race thing like people want to try to make it to be. It’s not. This is a point where we were doing our job, we gave too much time when we go in, I get shot, we returned fire,” Mattingly said in the interview.

“This is not us going, hunting somebody down. This is not kneeling on a neck. It’s nothing like that.” he added.

*The African-American Museum in Louisville, Ky unveiled a new art exhibit called Unarmed: An Afternoon of Images and Reflection, which was created in memory of black victims of police violence.

New York artist, Raafi Rivero, created a series of sports jerseys, each designed in the colors of a victim’s local sports team. The number is the victim’s age and stars on the jerseys represent how many times that person was shot.

Rivero said he began the project in 2013 after the death of Trayvon Martin, and as there were more and more victims, he added jerseys, including Breonna Taylor’s.

View the jerseys on display in this WHAS 11 news report on the exhibit below.
