The BBC’s Washington correspondent, Gary O’Donoghue, tweeted afterward that his colleague, cameraman Ron Skeans, was “fine”. He added that before the incident, Trump denounced “supposed media bias” from the podium.
In the video, caught on Skeans’ camera, a man in a “Make America Great Again Hat” can be heard shouting “Fuck the media” after the incident.
After the attacker was restrained, Trump asked if everything was ok and continued with his speech.
