"Fortunately our cameraman is fine, he is made of stern stuff", O'Donoghue told the "Today" program on BBC Radio 4.

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

Describing what unfolded, he said a Trump supporter got on to the reporters' platform, and pushed the camera into his colleague, before continuing to push Skeans.

The frame then shakes and loses focuses as the camera operator as attacked by an unidentified man wearing one of Trump's trademark MAGA red hats.

'The man was removed by security and Ron is fine.

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

President Trump has repeatedly claimed journalists are "the enemy of the people" and reporters of "fake news" since taking office in 2016.

Washington correspondent Gary O'Donoghue, who is blind, said his cameraman Ron Skeans was filming the rally in El Paso.




During Monday night's rally in El Paso, the President encouraged support for his proposed border wall with Mexico to protect the USA against a "tremendous onslaught" of migrant caravans, violent criminals and drugs.

"This is a constant feature of these rallies - a goading of the crowds against the media".

'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 okay", the BBC said in a statement.

CNN meanwhile filmed supporters of Mr Trump yelling abuse and swearing at reporters covering a rally in Florida past year.

CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta past year posted a video on Twitter that showed a hostile crowd at a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida.

Beto O'Rourke speaks to a crowd inside a ball park across the street from where President Donald Trump was holding a rally.

Democrats are scrambling to find a candidate to unseat the Republican - with Trump saying he plans on seeing out his presidency until 2025.
