A New York judge on Friday ordered President Trump to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit that was filed by protesters of ‘Mexican origin’ who claim they were physically attacked outside of Trump Tower in 2015.
The six Mexican protesters are suing Donald Trump, the Trump Organization, Trump’s campaign and his security crew.
A protest erupted outside of Trump Tower New York in 2015 in response to Trump’s comments he made about dangerous illegal aliens from Mexico.

A New York judge Friday ordered President Donald Trump to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit filed by protesters who claim they were roughed up outside Trump Tower in 2015.
State Supreme Court Judge Doris Gonzalez of the Bronx denied Trump’s effort to quash the subpoena, ordering him to videotape a deposition for the trial before jury selection begins Sept. 26.
The lawsuit stems from a Sept. 3, 2015, protest outside Trump Tower over negative comments Trump made about Mexico and Mexican immigrants when he had begun his presidential campaign that summer.
Six protesters of Mexican origin who claimed they were assaulted sued Trump, the Trump Organization, his presidential campaign and security personnel.
President Trump tried to quash the subpoena, however the judge sided with the protesters’ lawyers and said that Trump’s argument that there must be “exceptional circumstances” to depose the president of the United States did not apply in this case.
“The decision today stands for the proposition that no one is above the law, including Mr. Trump,” said Benjamin Dictor, a lawyer for the plaintiffs.
