NY Judge: Trump ‘Authorized And Condoned’ His Security To Beat On Protesters
Donald Trump can say that he doesn’t provoke violence, but his actions have proved otherwise over and over again.
On Tuesday, a New York State judge shut down Trump’s effort to dismiss a lawsuit against his private security guards for allegedly roughing up demonstrators who were protesting outside of Trump Tower months after Trump announced his presidential run.
According to The New York Law Journal, Bronx Supreme Court Justice Fernando Tapia decided to decline Trump’s request to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming that the president himself “authorized and condoned” his security to rough up protesters.
Tapia used Trump’s own words against him, noting that the president said of the incident: “maybe they deserved to be roughed up” on the grounds that “it was absolutely disgusting” what the protesters were doing.
