Police have given the all-clear after investigating a suspicious box found outside the Brooklyn home of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

A 911 call just before 2 p.m. brought the NYPD to 377 Union St. in Carroll Gardens.

There, law enforcement sources say they found a box with the words "American Fascism" written on it.

Police found nothing in the box, however, and the scene was deemed safe.

Manafort remains jailed in Virginia, awaiting trial on charges that he dodged taxes on millions of dollars he earned while representing Ukrainian interests.

If convicted, he could face a decade in prison.
