Trump lawyer: ‘No right’ to protest at rallies

President Donald Trump’s lawyers argued in a Thursday court filing that protesters “have no right” to “express dissenting views” at his campaign rallies because such protests infringed on his First Amendment rights.

The filing comes in a case brought by three protesters who allege they were roughed up and ejected from a March 2016 Trump campaign rally in Louisville, Kentucky, by Trump supporters who were incited by the then-candidate’s calls from the stage to “get 'em out of here!”

Lawyers for Trump’s campaign have argued that his calls to remove the protesters were protected by the First Amendment. But the federal district court judge hearing the case issued a ruling late last month questioning that argument, as well as the claim that Trump didn’t intend for his supporters to use force.

The ruling cleared the case to proceed into discovery and towards a trial.

Thursday’s filing by Trump’s campaign lawyers asks the judge to pause the proceedings and allow Trump’s legal team to appeal the ruling to a higher court “before subjecting the President to ‘unique’ and extraordinary burdens of litigation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word please.

Language does have a force and power of its own, and can well be construed as a call to violence.

You apparently didn't understand that during the campaign, and you appear not to have learned that as President, and that is well-demonstrated by the number of threats you have placed against various countries around the world.

Make America Great Again

(*I thin I figured it out . Make America Great Again meant something different to each of us , by relating Trump's campaign slogan to what each individual considered what was necessary to make the ideal a reality
For Trump Make America Great Again meant 'once I become Ptesident , I will have Made America Great Again .
So , in his mind , he fulfilled all his campaign promises , back in November .)
