Trump supporter accused of shoving journalists at El Paso rally

A supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat was escorted out of a rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday after he allegedly shoved and swore at a BBC cameraman and other news crews. According to the BBC, Ron Skeans said he felt a “very hard shove” from his blindside.

Video released by the BBC shows Skeans filming Trump during the rally when the camera noticeably begins to shake before falling forward.
