Former president Donald Trump has testified under oath for a videotaped deposition at Trump Tower... where protesters who have brought a civil lawsuit against Trump allege they were assaulted by his security team in 2015.

Attorney Benjamin Dictor represents the protestors who brought the lawsuit.

"We examined Mr. Trump concerning a variety of issues including statements he has made at various campaign events and rallies that the counsel believes encouraged violence at those events or encouraged the security guards to engage in violence or confiscate property."

The plaintiffs allege Trump's security guards attacked them on the sidewalk outside Trump Tower in Manhattan as they demonstrated over the then-presidential candidate's comments that Mexican immigrants were criminals and rapists.

"This is an important matter because everybody here is a New Yorker and New Yorkers know that the public sidewalks are sacred," Dictor said. "Just because someone's name is on a building, does not mean that they get to dictate what happens on the public sidewalk. That belongs to the people."
