Donald Trump Confronted and Stopped a Mugger in 1991 by James Rosen, New York Daily News
POSTED: November 20, 1991 When he saw a big guy with a big bat bashing another fellow, Donald Trump did what any self-respecting billionaire would do: He ordered his driver to pull over. Witnesses said Trump, with Marla Maples tugging at his arm to try to stop him, leaped from his black stretch limousine Monday evening during the Manhattan assault.
The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, Look, youve gotta stop this. Put down the bat, Trump said. I guess he recognized me because he said, Mr. Trump, I didnt do anything wrong. I said, How could you not do anything wrong when youre whacking a guy with a bat? Then he ran away.

Donald Trump has stood up to a dangerous mugger on behalf of a stranger who was being attacked in 1991. Leaving his limousine, he put himself in potential danger by confronting the mugger directly. After the October 2015 massacre at the Oregon college campus, some have urged people to collectively confront an attacker if they were in similar situation. Those who encourage cowardice over bravery accuse those who urge courage of not being willing to act courageously themselves. (How do they know this?)
Although Trump has not spoken to the issue of confronting a future attacker, were he to do so, he certainly has proven he had the courage of his convictions.
And he was in a Wrestlemaina. Which is good enough for me.
“Yes. I am Batman.”
We’ll hunt him. Because he can take it.
Now days we’d have a video.
He does what’s right
Trump’s an interesting guy that’s for sure.
WOW! Mama pin a rose on me.
Trump accosts some dumb drunk...all alone...he himself alone...with an armed guard sitting by in his limo!
You Trump people are so ludicrous!
Keep it up...I get my daily laugh from you.
This doesn’t surprise me. Don’t mess with Trump...
Now THAT - is negotiation.
I do believe that The Donald could talk an Inuit into buying ice in Barrow in December.
Some people are going through their life, miserable.
Don’t be a sour puss. It’s a great story.
It’s a very funny story. His limo guy, (and paid bodyguard), Big Bad Vinny, is sitting there armed to the teeth while Marla whimpers, “Oh, Honey, you might get hurt.”
Where did it say the attacker was a “dumb drunk”?
ALL guys with baseball bats attacking others are dumb drunks.
Meanwhile, there were two of New York’s finest standing on the corner 5 feet away, laughing their asses off.
(NOW, for the REAL STORY.)
I love it!
