It wasn’t just false claims about our President’s manhood, the other day something that many of us are sick and tired of hearing happened on the Trump campaign trail. It wasn’t that Donald Trump gave America a rousing speech about defeating Islamic terrorism, something we must all do at home and abroad. What it was, was a far-right talking point, over and over, about immigrants, immigrants, and what they are and are not. Donald Trump hit the national stage as a candidate in 2015 speaking in Dr. Pepper’s Nashville pop-up restaurant to rave reviews, which quickly turned into a national anti-immigration rally where he was accused of racism. After suffering a political decline in 2016 after the disastrous “grab ’em by the pussy” tape was leaked, Trump once again took a national stage as the Republican candidate for president who took part in a military parade.
That’s just a small part of Trump’s past, but nothing compared to the reports on the Georgia and Maryland man who attacked a black man at a gas station after he and his wife were asked to leave the service station. The assault took place right outside of Gettysburg, PA last week. News reports say the husband spit in the face of the black man and attacked him with an unknown object. The unidentified victim suffered scrapes and a bruised face.
Trump was contacted about the news and he sent out a tweet calling the gas station assault despicable and inviting the man behind the attack to come speak with him if he wants to be made whole again.
If you want to talk to me about anti-racism and the disgusting anti-immigration comments I made on May 20th, 2017 at Gettysburg, call 202-456-1111 – it is free and easy. pic.twitter.com/ZobMBrQnGB — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2018
D’Ambrosio Brown was the Georgia man who attacked the African-American man, Steven Parkhill at a Gettysburg, PA gas station. D’Ambrosio was first arrested in 2015 for assaulting his ex-wife when he allegedly threw her across the room in 2013, but he avoided jail time. When the assault took place D’Ambrosio was still on probation for his initial assault. Prior to that he was on parole for a 2014 assault on a Richmond, Virginia police officer. D’Ambrosio told FOX 47 that the African-American man approached him and his wife at the gas station, “took a swing at her,” said she “moved,” and that he picked up a “pepper ball” and threw it at him. D’Ambrosio added that he’s not a racist and said he believes Parkhill probably “hates” his wife.
Fox News Insider invited the victim, Steven Parkhill to join us in studio. Listen to what he had to say about his situation below:
Steven is now out of the hospital, but his psychological counseling will now continue and his family is seeking a restraining order against D’Ambrosio Brown. It is being noted in no way is this a random event and there is plenty of evidence connecting this case to other racially-motivated crimes, including the alarming murder of Heather Heyer who was killed by James Fields, Jr. last August.
