The BBC crew at the rally has said Trump's rhetorical attacks on the media had whipped the crowd into a frenzy.
As the footage shows, Skeans was recording Trumps speech when the footage suddenly stumbles forwards as he is hit.
The cameraman told the BBC that he was caught unawares by a "very hard shove", adding: "I didn't know what was going on".
He said a supporter of Mr Trump got onto the reporters' platform, and pushed the camera into his colleague, before continuing to push Mr Skeans. According to BBC, a Trump campaign official suggested that the man causing the violence was drunk.
During Monday night's rally in El Paso, the President encouraged support for his proposed border wall with Mexico to protect the U.S. against a "tremendous onslaught" of migrant caravans, violent criminals and drugs.
"I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular".
Donald Trump's rise to becoming President has been marked by a hostile tone towards the vast swathes of the media, bar the outlets that support him such as the right-wing, Rupert Murdoch-owned broadcaster Fox News.
Mr Trump went head-to-head against counterprogramming by Beto O'Rourke, a former Democratic congressman and potential Trump rival in 2020, who argued that walls cause more problems than they solve.
"I'm very anxious that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt", Acosta wrote on Twitter.
