Former President Donald Trump had to sit for a 4-hour long deposition under oath on Monday for a lawsuit alleging that the Trump Tower security team attacked and assaulted some activists during an immigration protest in 2015 after he called immigrants rapists and murderers. It’s difficult to imagine that Trump was under oath without committing perjury during the four-hour deposition. So, we’ll see what happens with that.
In response to Trump’s remarks about immigrants, according to The Daily Beast, “Efrain Galicia and four other Mexican activists displayed a “Make America Racist Again” banner outside the building on Sept. 3, 2015. They also wore parody Ku Klux Klan costumes after Trump was endorsed by former KKK leader David Duke.”
And that’s when Trump’s henchmen roughed them up.
Former deputy Attorney General Harry Litman revealed on Twitter the questions that the twice-impeached one-term president had to answer during the deposition, and let’s just say that it had to be awkward. Trump was reportedly asked about his race-baiting comments at his rallies.
And an important detail: the judge let the plaintiffs’ lawyer asked Trump about his incendiary race- and immigrant -baiting comments at campaign rallies.

Right on! Damning evidence of his guilt. No one instructs his body guard but him, so he’s a liar.

Trump has been a racist his whole life, and he only confirmed that while he was campaigning. In regards to Mexico, Trump said in 2015, “They are not our friend, believe me,” then he disparaged Mexican immigrants, saying, “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Trump is about to learn a new word: consequences. Oh, and also karma.
