Trump claims immunity as president from protesters' lawsuit

Donald Trump

A white supremacist accused of assaulting a protester at a Donald Trump campaign rally in Louisville past year has filed a lawsuit against the president, arguing he "relied on Trump's authority to order disruptive persons removed".

Three people who claim they were assaulted at the Trump rally filed a lawsuit previous year against Trump, his campaign, Heimbach and Bamberger.

The lawyers feel that if Bamberg is found liable, Trump or his campaign should be as well due to the fact that "Trump and/or Trump campaign urged and inspired Bamberger to act as he did". During the altercation, Trump shouted at them to "get out" and "get 'em out of here!"

During the rally, Trump allegedly instructed his supporters to "get them out of here" while they were peacefully protesting at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

In response, the U.S.is deploying a naval strike force that includes an aircraft carrier and strategic submarines to the region. Wang said that whichever side provoked a conflict "must assume the historic responsibility and pay the corresponding price".

Already, a judge has concluded that there was more than enough evidence to allow the case to proceed, noting that Trump repeatedly issued inflammatory statements immediately followed by violent action in his crowds. The judge also rejected Trump's free speech defense against allegations that he incited violence.

President Trump's lawyers are working double time to get yet another lawsuit against him dismissed, even going so far as to claim that he can't be sued because he is president of the United States.

Heimbach, who is representing himself, said in court papers that "Trump is a world famous businessman, worth, according to his own claims, billions of dollars, and who relies on various professionals including attorneys and other professional advisers".

On Friday, Trump's lawyers responded to the original lawsuit, saying that as president he is immune to such lawsuits, the Associated Press reported. He "had no prior intention to act as he did". However, they say Trump was instructing his security team, not the crowd.

They have also asked that Trump be awarded costs, expenses and attorney fees.

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. They also say the protesters waived their right to sue by buying tickets to the event, and they deny that Trump was urging the crowd to take action by repeatedly saying "get them out of here".

That was the rally in which Bamberger and a man named Matthew Heimbach pushed Nwanguma back and forth.
