At swearing-in, Trump expresses fear of being hit by killer fruit

According to a transcript of the statement, Trump said, “I wanted people to be prepared because we were put on alert that they were going to bear fruit.”

“It’s very dangerous stuff. You can get killed by those things,” he said of tomatoes. He also said that for safety in preventing people from throwing “pineapples, bananas, tomatoes, stuff like that” It was necessary to be “aggressive”.

Trump was also questioned in February 2016 about his remarks at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he told attendees to “finish the bullshit” who might throw tomatoes at him. He promised to pay the legal fees of anyone who did so.

It was one of several incidents in which Trump promoted violence against his critics.

During the statement, Benjamin Dictor, attorney for the five activists, asked Trump how he knew about the alleged plot to throw tomatoes at a 2016 rally.

“We were told,” Trump said vaguely. Asked if anyone actually had tomatoes, Trump said, “I don’t know. But it didn’t happen. It turns out that nothing happened. ,

In 2020, Trump claimed that “anarchists” were throwing cans of soup at police, saying they were coming with “bags of soup, big bags of soup, and they put it on the ground and anarchists put it on the ground.” And they started throwing it. At our cops.” When caught throwing soup, Trump claimed, “They say ‘No, this is soup for my family’.”

Dictor, the attorney for the plaintiffs prosecuting Trump, told The New York Times last year that his inquiries would focus on the former president’s control and responsibility over the violent actions of his bodyguards.

“The issue of the use of physical force at Trump rallies throughout his campaign, and the presidency for that matter, are serious matters of public interest,” Dictor told the Times. “This incident, from September 3, 2015, was one of the first examples of Donald Trump and his staff willing to use physical force against peaceful protesters.”
