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.”

    When he’s been attacked by a member of the Antifa gang , then he can say he was violently attacked! Stay home, Pussy-boy, in your safe place!

    Really? Another Ploy to show that Trump supporters are violent, go and try your lies at the Beto Rally.
    I don’t trust the BBC at all, I’m British and ask the Brits in England how fair and unbiased the BBC is, they are just like the MSM here do not give out the truth.
    In England they side with the invaders that are destroying England and Europe.
    Stay away BBC trying to stir up trouble.

      I was thinking the same thing. The one doing the shoving was more than likely a socialist infiltrate their to make Trump supporters look bad or it just didn’t happen. I don’t trust news outlets in America so why should I trust the BBC? Or maybe the guy was an illegal alien pretending to be a Trump supporter and wanted to start trouble. There are a lot of explanations and none of them have to do with Trump supporters being violent . And since he climbed onto a platform maybe he was Trump supporter just trying to get a better View. The left-wing socialist are the ones that do violence towards others
