Trump supporter attacks cameraman at rally

A BBC cameraman has been "violently attacked" at a Donald Trump rally by a MAGA hat-wearing supporter of the US President.

"It was an incredibly violent attack".

The cameraman told the BBC that the "very hard shove" came out of nowhere.

The man can then be heard shouting "USA" and "f*ck the media".

Mr O'Donoghue said the goading of the crowds against the media is a "constant feature of these rallies".

Gary O'Donoghue, the Washington correspondent for the British public service broadcaster, described the attack on his cameraman Ron Skeans as "incredibly violent".

'I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular'.

Mr Trump saw the attack and confirmed Mr Skeans was well with a thumbs up after it happened.

Washington Examiner reporter Gabby Morrongiello, who shot video of the incident, explained that members in the press pen were trying to record a group of African-American students who were protesting Trump by standing together with interlocked hands.

The sound of booing resounds throughout the El Paso County Coliseum as the attacker is drawn away. His relationship with the media reached a nadir in October 2018 when he called it "the true enemy of the people".
