The attorney representing 75-year-old veteran and Trump fan Alvin Bamberg said that his assault of a protester was directly caused by the inflammatory comments made by then-candidate Trump.
The president's lawyers contend that Trump was not ordering them to harm the protesters.
The response filed by Trump contradicts the argument of a co-defendant, a Trump supporter accused of shoving a young black woman at the rally. During the altercation, Trump shouted at them to "get out" and "get 'em out of here!"
U.S. District Judge David Hale ruled on April 1 that there's ample evidence that could be seen as supporting allegations that the protesters' injuries were a "direct and proximate result" of Trump's actions.

According to the report, Bamberger's lawyers also argued that their client "admits only that he touched a woman", and not "that he assaulted that woman".
Trump's team also denies that he was urging the crowd to take action against the protesters when he repeatedly said "get them out of here".
Bamberger, a member of the Korean War Veterans Association from OH, "would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump campaign's specific urging and inspiration", Bamberger's lawyer wrote. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or Trump campaign's specific urging and inspiration".
The case being pursued against Trump was lodged by a group of three protesters who were shoved, punched, and assaulted by a Trump mob during a rally in March of 2016.
