Inundated with lawsuits and ongoing trials, the Trump Organization on Wednesday chose to settle with anti-MAGA protesters who were beaten up by corporate security guards outside Trump Tower in 2015 rather than trying to convince a Bronx jury.
After three days of struggling to find jurors who didn’t already have strong feelings about former President Donald Trump and his eponymous company—a difficult undertaking in liberal New York City—defense lawyers at the last minute chose to settle.

They were angry about his racist comments in which he berated Mexican migrants seeking refuge in the United States as “rapists.” They also sought to draw attention to the potential dangers of Trump’s statements and presidential ambitions, given that he had just been endorsed by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
When they showed up on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower in KKK hoods and large signs–remaining on the public street–Trump corporate security guards attacked them, tackled Galicia, and ripped a sign from his hand.
Although the protesters soon sued the company, the lawsuit was held up while Trump remained in the White House….
