“Mr. Trump is immune from suit because he is President of the United States, he is immune from proceedings pursuant to Clinton v. Jones” a defense statement emitted by the attorney of the head of nation in a court room resonated in the ears of the local media outlets, provoking a sentiment of outrage for the dissent of the contentious president of the United States of America.
In a judicial case, accusing the new state leader of inciting multiple outlaws to commit the penalties they have been held accountable for, a number of victims have attempted to sue the president for the aggressive tendencies he has implanted into his supporter base with his inflammatory statements and rhetoric.
Motivator and Inciter
The presidential campaign of the republican candidate Mr. Donald Trump, in a 2016 Kentucky rally, witnessed a racial/ethnical assault on three attendees recorded and spread across all media platforms; causing public fury.
The offenders testified in court that their main inspiration has been the then “president elect”, motivating them to demonstrate their patriotism by bullying the “nations intruders”. The lawsuit undertaken by the sufferers has contained another aspect of the allegations, holding Mr. Trump responsible for the actions of the culprits as well as the rising hate-crimes across the U.S.
The gasoline spilled on the fire was clearly apparent to the public as the president in one of the incidents supported the offender by shouting in his microphone to the audience: “Get them out of here” referring to the protester being assaulted.
The lawyers of the head of the White House have been rebutting the allegations, framing the case to be void under the pretext of the presidential immunity.
A law School professor in the University of Chicago, William Baude, specialized in immunity analyzed the situation saying: “Generally speaking, things done before the President is president, in the President’s ordinary capacity, there’s no special immunity from suit. (The concept is) about preserving your ability to do your job; it doesn’t apply before you had your job.”
