Court Rules to Release Video of Trump Deposition in D.C. Hotel Feud

New video of Donald Trump testifying under oath will soon be made public after a court ruling Friday unsealed footage of the GOP nominee’s deposition in a case involving his new Washington D.C. hotel.

NBC/MSNBC was among the news organizations that sued for access to the videotape, which records Trump’s deposition in his legal feud with restaurateur and celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian.

Zakarian and another DC-area chef, Jose Andres, pulled out of deals to open restaurants at the hotel last year after Trump derided Mexican immigrants as “rapists” who are “bringing crime" to the United States.

Transcripts of the video have already been made public. In his testimony, which was conducted under oath, Trump complained that the chefs who objected to his rhetoric about undocumented immigrants were being “politically correct” and “grandstanding” when they canceled their plans to operate at Trump's new hotel at the historic Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue.
