Trump praises congressman who assaulted reporter

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

"And he was way up ... and I said - this is like the day of the election - I said, oh this is bad, he's gonna lose the election...."

Trump's comments come as events are unfolding in the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2. "I know Montana pretty well, I think it might help him".

On Biden challenging him to a fight, Trump said, "He'd be down, faster than Greg would take him down".

Trump's remarks on Gianforte's assault come amid new evidence surrounding the disappearance of the US-based Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who is feared to have been brutally killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

"By the way, never wrestle him", Trump said, referring to Gianforte's assault on The Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs.

Jacobs alleged that Gianforte "body slammed" him in response to a question about healthcare, breaking his glasses. Gianforte admitted Jacobs had done nothing wrong.

"So I was in Rome with a lot of the leaders from other countries, talking about all sorts of things, when I heard about it", Trump said.

He was sentenced to a 180-day deferred sentence, 40 hours of community service, 20 hours of anger management and a US$300 fine.

U.S. President Donald Trump praised Rep. Trump said on Thursday that it "certainly looks" as though Khashoggi is dead. Turkish authorities say that he was murdered in the consulate, and his apparent grisly killing has turned attention to the USA relationship to the regime of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
