Watch as a BBC cameraman is assaulted at Trump's rally

A man is restrained after he began shoving members of the media during a rally for President Donald Trump in El Paso Texas

A supporter of Donald Trump reportedly attacked a BBC cameraman at one of the president's rallies on Monday evening.

O'Donoghue told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "It was an incredibly violent attack".

Trump interrupted his speech when he saw what was going on and said to Skeans, "You all right?"

Mere minutes later, Trump brought attention to the press in the room, jeering at them and eliciting boos from the crowd.

President Trump has repeatedly claimed journalists are "the enemy of the people" and reporters of "fake news" since taking office in 2016.

She tweeted: "Just attended my first Donald Trump rally where my colleague BBC cameraman Rob Skeans was attacked by a Trump supporter".

China denies Turkish claim that Uighur poet Abdurehim Heyit died in Xinjiang
But China on Sunday released a video showing a man who identified himself as Heyit and saying that he was alive and well. Their language is close to Turkish and a significant number of Uighurs have fled to Turkey from China in recent years.


The footage captured from Skeans' camera shows the shot focused on Trump before jolting away as he is pushed by a man.

BBC Washington producer Eleanor Montague said the protester, whose name remains unknown, had taunted other news teams, but Skeans "got the brunt of it".

Mr Trump was in El Paso, speaking to a crowd of around 7,000, to make a case for building a wall along the border with Mexico.

As the camera appears to visibly bounce around for about 10 seconds, the screen then focuses on a man in a red cap who is swearing and being restrained by another man.

'The man was removed by security and Ron is fine.

"This is a constant feature of these rallies - a goading of the crowds against the media", Mr O'Donoghue added.

"I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular", he added.

Trump has made hostility toward the media a feature of many of his rallies, where a metal barricade often separates his supporters from reporters.

"I'm very anxious that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt", tweeted Jim Acosta in response to the Florida incident.

The Sun later released a video of the dictaphone recording with Donald Trump.

Mitt Romney, a senator from Utah and former Republican presidential nominee, argued previous year that Trump's tactics are detrimental to democracy.
