A BBC cameraman has been "violently attacked" at a Donald Trump rally by a MAGA hat-wearing supporter of the US President.

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.

Demonstrator loses hand at Paris ‘yellow vest’ march
A police source, however, said numbers were higher, with 21,000 demonstrators taking part in rallies outside Paris alone. The yellow vest protests are named after the jackets motorists are obliged to carry in France .

She later added: "To all those who asked after the cameraman - Ron is fine".

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 being restrained by another man in a black t-shirt.

This isn't the first time Trump supporters have become violent towards news crew at a Trump rally.

He has claimed journalists are "the enemy of the people" and slammed the "fake news" for reports he deems unfavourable.

The BBC's Washington correspondent, Gary O'Donoghue, said Mr Skeans is "fortunately OK".

Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball
Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played both football and baseball, but Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback. He ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history.

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.
