A BBC cameraman was shoved during President Donald Trump’s speech Tuesday night in what has been described as an “incredibly violent attack”.
Washington correspondent Gary O’Donoghue said his colleague Ron Skeans had been filming Trump’s unofficial 2020 kickoff rally in El Paso, Texas, when the incident happened.
Describing what unfolded, he said a supporter of Trump got on to the reporters’ platform and pushed the camera into his colleague, before continuing to push Skeans. The experienced cameraman told the BBC that he was caught unaware by a “very hard shove”, adding: “I didn’t know what was going on.”
O’Donoghue told BBC Radio 4’s Today program: “It was an incredibly violent attack. Fortunately our cameraman is fine, he is made of stern stuff.”
This is the shameful moment when my cameraman Ron Skeans was attacked at an @realDonaldTrump rally in El Paso last night – warning this video contains strong language. Happily Ron is fine. #TrumpElPaso pic.twitter.com/Ay5DYT6gjP
