Donald Trump apparently stopped a mugging in 1991, according to an old New York Daily News article at the time.
The original article, “Mugger’s Trumped: Donald stops attack,” written by Daily News staff writer James Rosen, is still on Philly.com, but with the title, “Trump Strikes Out Would-be Mugger.”
“I’m not looking to play this thing up,” Trump said in the Nov. 20, 1991, report. “I’m surprised you found out about it.” In the incident, Trump ordered his driver to pull over after he saw “a big guy with a big bat” bashing another person. An old copy of the article went viral on Redd
“Someone in the car looked over and said, ‘Gee, look at that, it’s a mugging,’ ” Trump said. “I said to my driver to stop the car because it was brutal-looking.”
Witnesses told the Daily News that Trump got out of his black stretch limousine on Monday during the assault in Manhattan.
“The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, “Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat,”‘ Trump said.
“A lot of people were surprised that he got out to see what was happening,” Romeo said, adding that the bat-wielder ran off right before he appeared.
Trump then “just looked around and went back into his limo,” she said.
But another witness supported Trump. “All of a sudden, a big long limousine pulls up on an angle, and Donald Trump pops out with the blond, too,” the unnamed witness added. “There was a guy with a bat, hitting a guy over the head, and Trump yelled, ‘Put that bat down. What are you doing?’ The guy dropped the bat, came over and started talking to him.”
The attack wasn’t ever reported to police. Also in 1991, Trump delivered a speech to the House on “economic recovery.” The clip has since gone viral on YouTube amid Trump’s run for president.

In no way on any of those site is there proof that this actually happened. If it did happen then good job Trump for a selfless act. But to be honest since this story is only on hard right leaning websites and nowhere else should indicate something to you.

So Trump IS braver then the officers who didn't go into the school.
Would you look at that?
Trump is a hero after all.
