A Trump supporter attacked a BBC cameraman at last night’s rally in El Paso, Texas.
The BBC reports: ‘Sporting a Make America Great Again cap, the man shoved and swore at the BBC’s Ron Skeans and other news crews before being pulled away. Mr Skeans said the “very hard shove” came from his blindside. “I didn’t know what was going on.” Mr Trump saw the attack and confirmed Mr Skeans was well with a thumbs up after it happened. The BBC has written to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders asking for a review of security arrangements for the media attending the president’s rallies following the attack.’
Eleanor Montague, BBC’s Washington producer, said that in the lead-up to the attack the president had denounced the media for misrepresenting him and used his “fake news” epithet.
