A supporter of US President Donald Trump attacked a BBC cameraman at a campaign rally in Texas, the news network said on Tuesday.

Gary O'Donoghue, BBC's Washington correspondent, who also was there, said that the man had jumped onto the media platform and tried to smash the BBC camera. "Fortunately our cameraman is fine, he is made of stern stuff", Mr O'Donoghue told the Today programme.

Footage captured from Mr Skeans's camera was posted to Twitter by Mr O'Donoghue and shows the shot focused on Mr Trump before jolting away.

He yells "fuck the media" twice before being led away.

The BBC's Washington news editor, Eleanor Montague, said Trump had whipped the crowd "into a frenzy against the media" prior to the attack.

'I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular'. In October he used a campaign speech to attack what he called media "hostility" after a wave of pipe bombs were sent to senior Democrats, prominent critics and the broadcaster CNN.

As President Trump talked about the current unemployment rate among minority groups in America, a man wearing a MAGA hat allegedly shoved a BBC cameraman, knocking both him and his camera over.

The BBC reported that Skeans felt a "very hard shove" from his blindside.

'It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job'.

The American president has a strained relationship with the media, and has often branded reporting as "fake news" and stated that journalists are "the true enemy of the people".

Trump's rally in El Paso was also his first direct clash with potential 2020 presidential rival Beto O'Rourke.

United Nations experts last August warned that Trump's attacks "increase the risk of journalists being attacked with violence" and suggested that his rhetoric was "strategic". "The arena holds 8,000 and, thank you fire department, they got in about 10 [thousand]", he said.
