Trump fan who attacked black woman blames POTUS for 'urging' him on

Attorneys for President Donald Trump say he did nothing wrong as a candidate when protesters said they were roughed up by his supporters at a campaign rally in Louisville a year ago.

According to the lawsuit filed Friday, at at least one rally, Trump or his campaign promised to pay the legal fees of those who followed Trump's urgings to remove the protesters, according to WDRB.

Alvin Bamberger, 75, filed a countersuit in U.S. District Court, saying "he would not have acted as he did without" Trump's "urging and inspiration". "To the extent that Bamberger acted, he did so in response to - and inspired by - Trump and/or Trump campaign's urging to remove the protesters", wrote the attorneys.

Attorneys for Trump had argued that he did not want his supporters to use force when he declared "get 'em out of here" at the Louisville rally, but a federal judge in the case ruled earlier this month that the case can proceed because there is no protection for speech that incites violence. During the altercation, Trump shouted "get out" and "get 'em out of here!"

Trump's lawyers, however, have also maintained that then-candidate Trump was not directing the remark at his supporters and that his statement is protected by the First Amendment.

A week later, when protesters interrupted Trump in Louisville, the candidate responded with commands such as: "Get them out", "Get him the hell out", but also, "Don't hurt them".

Similarly, under the Cashback scheme , the merchants will get a cashback of Rs 25 on every transaction using BHIM. The lack of connectivity has also made it hard for the merchants in the country to adopt digital payment systems.


On Friday, Bamberger's attorneys denied that he assaulted Nwanguma, saying in a new court filing that he "admits only that he touched a woman".

Attorneys for Trump denied wrongdoing in an answer to the original lawsuit on Friday, arguing, in part, that he is "immune from suit because he is President". He "had no prior intention to act as he did". The protesters are seeking an unknown amount in damages.

The veteran previously apologized for the events that unfolded at the rally in a letter to the Korean War Association, whose uniform he wore at the rally.

April 16 (UPI) - Donald Trump can't be sued for inciting his supporters because the president is immune from civil lawsuits, his lawyers said in federal court filings. "I physically pushed a young woman down the aisle toward the exit, an action I sincerely regret".

Also being sued is Matthew Heimbach, a leader with the white supremacist group Traditional Youth Network in Paoli, Ind.
