A man arrested at a Donald Trump rally at the weekend for allegedly trying to grab a policeman’s gun said he wanted to shoot the candidate.

Nineteen-year-old Michael Steven Sandford was detained at a Las Vegas hotel on Saturday.

Steven who owns a British drivers licence, is reported to have said he had been attempting to kill Trump for a year but decided to act now because he finally felt confident about trying it.

Trump who is the presumptive Republican presidential candidate has made no comment.
