WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House Correspondents’ Association has condemned an attack on a television cameraman working at President Donald Trump’s rally in El Paso, Texas.
The association’s president, Olivier Knox, stated Tuesday the group is relieved that “this time, no one was significantly harm.”
Knox says the president ought to make clear to his supporters that violence towards reporters is unacceptable.
There was a quick scuffle on a press platform away from the stage on Monday night time, when a person started shoving members of the news media and was restrained.
Michael Glassner, chief working officer of Trump’s re-election campaign, says a person “concerned in a physical altercation with a news cameraman” was removed from the rally. He praised “the swift action from venue safety and regulation enforcement officers.”
