A British citizen who tried to grab a gun at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas over the weekend has said that he wanted to shoot the Republican candidate.

Michael Steven Sandford, who is only a 19 year old teenager, is expected to appear in a Nevada court shortly.

According to the court papers, he went to a Trump rally on Saturday and reportedly approached a Las Vegas police officer to say he wanted an autograph from the candidate, before trying to seize the gun.

He told police he had been in the US for one and a half years, and he had been planning to try and shoot Trump for about a year but had decided to act now because he finally felt confident enough to do so.
