For once, liberals and white supremacists agree on something: President Donald Trump's rhetoric incites right-wing violence. On Monday, Matthew Heimbach, a notorious 26-year-old white nationalist who was filmed shoving an African American woman at a Trump campaign rally in March 2016, filed a lawsuit claiming that he had simply been acting "pursuant to the directives and requests of" Trump himself. At the rally in Louisville, Kentucky, three African American protesters drew jeers from the crowd, prompting Trump to shout from the stage, "Get 'em outta here!" Heimbach, standing nearby, began shoving Kashiya Nwanguma, a student at the University of Kentucky.
