Phillip Wilburn, who has appeared on TV shows Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live! as the U.S. President's lookalike, appeared onstage alongside the hip hop star and an impersonator of Trump's presidential rival Hillary Clinton at an MTV event in Los Angeles in September (16).

Video footage obtained by shows Wilburn, dressed in a suit, blue tie and Trump-style wig, taking to the stage and Joey giving him the middle finger before pushing him into the crowd.

Wilburn is now suing over the incident, claiming he has had to spend $1,000 (807) in medical expenses after the fall and may also require surgery, which could total $25,000 (20,000). He also predicts he will lose an estimated $50,000 (40,000) in profits because of his injuries.

Wilburn, who claims he was shoved with force by Joey, is seeking more than $1.5 million (1.2 million) in damages.
