"He's My Kind Of Guy": Trump Praises Congressman Who Assaulted Reporter

Trump, amid outcry over missing Saudi journalist, praises GOP congressman for body slamming reporter - Los Ang

"Any guy that can do a body slam, he is my type!"

The attack came a day before Mr Gianforte won a 2017 special election to serve the remaining 18 months in the House term vacated by now-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.

"I shouldn't say this".

Trump's Thursday event kicked off a five-rally streak over seven days as the president tries to get GOP voters motivated for the November 6 elections. "Any guy that can do a body slam, he's my kind of...he's my guy", Trump told the Missoula crowd.

Trump later recalled his initial reaction to the attack, claiming that he thought it would help rather than hurt Gianforte's prospects.

Gianforte pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to 40 hours of community service and 20 hours of anger-management, in addition to the $385 in court fees and fines.

The initial implication was that the employee was attempting to steal signs and relay them to the Astros. The man had a small camera and was texting frequently , but did not have a media credential.

"This will be an election of (Justice Brett) Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order and common sense", Trump said. "To celebrate an attack on a journalist who was simply doing his job is an attack on the First Amendment by someone who has taken an oath to defend it".

His remarks praising Mr Gianforte come amid an global furore over the apparent assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who allegedly had his fingers cut off and was decapitated inside a Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago.

Trump, who frequently criticizes what he terms the "fake news media" and has repeatedly described news organizations as the "enemy of the people", has been accused of setting a tone that condones abuses against journalists in other countries.

Mr Trump raised the incident amid calls for a stronger response from his administration to reports that US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi was ambushed inside the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, then tortured, killed and dismembered.
