Illegal British Citizen Arrested For Trying To Kill Trump


Raw video of the moment a young man who 'wanted to kill Donald Trump' was arrested at the rally in Las Vegas Saturday. The crowd boos mercilessly, but they have no idea the British teenager had just attempted to grab the holstered weapon of an officer.


LAS VEGAS (AP) — A British man arrested at a weekend Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas tried to grab a police officer's gun so he could kill the presidential candidate after planning an assassination for about a year, according to authorities.

U.S. Secret Service agents said Michael Steven Sandford approached a Las Vegas police officer at the campaign stop to say he wanted Trump's autograph, but that he then tried to take the weapon.

A complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Nevada charges Sandford, 20, with an act of violence on restricted grounds. He was denied bail during a court appearance later in the day. His court-appointed attorney said he was living out of his car and in the country illegally after overstaying a visa.

Agents said Sandford told them he had been in the U.S. for about a year and a half, lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, and drove to the San Bernardino, California, area before coming to Las Vegas on June 16.

Sandford told officers he was convinced he would die in the assassination attempt. He said he also reserved a ticket for a Trump rally in Phoenix, scheduled for later Saturday, as a backup plan.

The criminal complaint said Sandford was arrested after grabbing the handle of an officer's gun while trying to remove it from a holster.

Sanford told authorities that he went to the Battlefield Vegas shooting range the day before the rally and fired 20 rounds from a 9mm Glock pistol to learn how to use it. Police detectives who visited the range spoke with an employee who confirmed that he provided Sandford shooting lessons, according to the complaint signed by Secret Service Special Agent Joseph Hall.

The Democrats will probably have a cabinet position waiting for this import terrorist if they win. And the way Trump keeps opening his mouth and inserting both feet and half his ass I am not sure he is not working for the Clinton foundation to insure a Hillary win. Nobody can be this stupid.

Years ago there was a book called Reagan's America by Lloyd Demause that used political cartoons of the time
and articles to show that there were signals sent subconsciously that it was OK to eliminate President Reagan
When the media calls Trump racist, Hitler etc it sends signals to the unbalanced that it is ok to do anything to
eliminate him

Interesting point on media signals. The media demonizes him and the crazies take care of the rest.

Agreed on Trump's missteps. He needs to get his campaign back on the right track in a hurry.

New physical standards established so women can compete for combat posts in the Marine Corps have weeded out many of the female hopefuls. But they're also disqualifying some men, according to data obtained by The Associated Press. In the last five months, 6 out of 7 female recruits — and 40 out of about 1,500 male recruits — failed to pass the new regimen of pull-ups, ammunition-can lifts, a 3-mile run and combat maneuvers required to move on in training for combat jobs, according to the data.

I've been reading guccifer 2 documents all day. This shit is crazy.


I would avoid the actual documents, there are thousands of pages, and search for articles on guccifer 2. I'm going to start putting up posts.

Gompers, Trump is definitely not that stupid. I've been worried about the Donald being an establishment Trojan Trump since he started running for office.
