BBC photographer reportedly shoved by Trump supporter during rally
A BBC cameraman was assaulted by a man wearing a red Make America Great Again hat as he filmed a rally held by President Donald Trump in El Paso, Texas, on Monday.
Ron Skeans said he was behind the camera when he was given a “very hard shove” from behind.
“I didn’t know what was going on,” Skeans said. He said the man almost knocked his camera over twice before being wrestled away by another man.
“It was an incredibly violent attack. Fortunately, our cameraman is fine. He is made of stern stuff,” BBC Washington correspondent Gary O’Donoghue said in a radio interview.
Video of the incident shows the BBC camera focused on Trump as he delivers his speech when the shot suddenly jolts away toward the floor. When the camera pans back up, a man in a MAGA hat is seen cursing in the direction of the news crews as he is dragged away by another man in a red cap.
