A man is restrained after shoving members of the media

A supporter of US President Donald Trump has attacked a BBC cameraman at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas.

"It was an incredibly violent attack".

As the footage shows, Skeans was recording Trumps speech when the footage suddenly stumbles forwards as he is hit.

Skeans later told the BBC that the man, who has not been identified, shoved him hard from his blind side, and the cameraman was not sure what had happened at first.

The BBC reports the unidentified Trump supporter twice nearly knocked Skeans and his camera over as he "shoved and swore" at other members of the press and yelled "f**k the media" before security escorted him away.

The Donald Trump supporter could be seen being restrained after the incident. After the attack, a Trump campaign official suggested that the attacker had been drunk.

According to The Guardian, Ron Skeans, who was covering the Trump rally for BBC, was met by a man who had somehow gotten onto the media platform.

In freewheeling remarks at his rally, Trump also trashed the 'Green New Deal, ' but didn't single out its most prominent backer, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - although he bashed Democrats generally.

"This is a constant feature of these rallies - a goading of the crowds against the media", O'Donoghue added.

'I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular'. The president could see the incident and checked with us that all was OK, ' she said.
