THAT’S ALL? Man Who Tried to Assassinate Trump Gets Minimal Punishment

Michael Sandford AL

As you might recall, back in June a young British man attempted to assassinate Donald Trump at a rally in Las Vegas. He has pleaded guilty to the charges and received a pretty light sentence, all things considered.

British Man Who Tried to Shoot Donald Trump Pleads Guilty

A British man plead guilty Tuesday after attempting to grab a gun from a police officer and shoot Donald Trump at a June campaign rally in Las Vegas.

Michael Steven Sandford, 20, is facing federal charges of being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function, which could get him about two years in U.S. prison and deported, according to CBS News.

“I tried to take a gun from a policeman to shoot someone with, and I’m pleading guilty,” Sandford said in court.

At the event he asked a police officer if he could get an autograph of Trump and then reached both of his hands for the officer’s weapon, CBS reports.

Sanford told a federal agent that he drove from California to Las Vegas with intentions to kill Trump and that he practiced at a gun range with a 9mm pistol the day before the attempt.

Don’t you think the penalty would have been harsher if the object of his hate was someone else?

Like say… Obama or Hillary?
