It’s no secret that during Donald Trump’s campaign rallies that violence would erupt. No matter what Trump supporters like to claim, many of his supporters initiated and condoned violence. Now it wasn’t just violence against each other, but violence against people of color.
Throughout Trump’s campaign, African-Americans would complain about their treatment at Trump’s rallies. Those who were victimized were simply protesting – exercising their First Amendment rights. Let’s face it – Trump and many of his followers like to brag about the U.S. Constitution but fail to embrace people who exercise their right outside of the Second Amendment.
One of the many people at Trump’s rallies who assaulted a Black woman is now suing Trump. That’s right; the lawyers of Alvin Bamberger say he assaulted the woman at the urging of Donald Trump.
According to theGrio, “Alvin Bamberger was filmed pushing a woman, Kashiya Nwanguma, at a pro-Trump rally in Louisville, Kentucky. During the altercation, Trump shouted at them to ‘get out’ and ‘get ‘em out of here!’”
Lawyers claim that Trump would urge people to throw out protesters at his rallies. It’s been reported that “Bamberger had no prior intention to act has he did. Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or Trump campaign’s specific 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.”
If Bamberger is found liable for his actions, what about Trump? Well, according to Trump, he is exempt from civil lawsuits because he’s the president. “Attorneys for the president have now waded in saying that both Trump and the campaign ‘lack sufficient information’ about most of the claims “and therefore deny them.” The lawyers also said Trump’s “get them out of here” remark wasn’t directed to the crowd.”
