US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a rally at the Treasure Island Hotel in Las VegasA 19-year-old British man has been charged for trying to grab a police officer’s gun at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas in an apparent bid to kill the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. According to a complaint filed in federal court in Nevada, Michael Sandford tried to disarm the officer at Saturday’s rally at the Mystere Theatre in the Treasure Island Casino before being overpowered. It said the young man told a Secret Service agent after his arrest that he had driven from California to Las Vegas “to kill Trump,” and had been to a range a day earlier to learn to shoot as he had never fired a gun before.
