Man Attempts To Assassinate Donald Trump - What He Just Revealed Is Shocking

The parents of a 20-year-old man that was arrested for attempting to grab a policeman’s gun for the sole purpose of assassinating Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has shed some light on the situation. According to Young Conservatives, the young man suffers from a history of mental illness.

Michael Sandford was arrested after allegedly attempting to grab a policeman’s gun at a Trump rally in Las Vegas. He was immediately arrested and detained, and revealed that he had been planning an assassination attempt for some time and had hoped to die as a result of his actions.

He also happens to be in the US illegally. Michael’s a resident of the UK, and his parents report that he has Asperger’s syndrome. He took off for the US earlier this year, and his parents reveal that he offered up somewhat of an explanation to them.

“Someone had to stand up for America,” he explained.

The parents also provided some details on how shocked they are about the whole thing.

“He wouldn’t hurt a hair on anybody’s head – everybody has said that. I just want to wrap my arms round him and never let him go,” his mother Lynne says.
