Man who tried to kill Donald Trump at a campaign rally sentenced to 30 years in prison

Michael Steven Sandford, 20, has
been charged by a grand jury on
Wednesday, with disrupting an
official function and two firearm
possession counts, U.S. Attorney
Daniel Bogden said. Together, the charges could get him up to 30 years in prison.

Federal agents say Sandford told
them he drove to Las Vegas from San Bernardino, California, with a plan to kill Trump.
He said he went to a Las Vegas gun
range to learn to shoot the day
before the incident at Treasure
Island Hotel and Casino on June 18.

His father Paul Davey, 50, who
traveled to the US to speak to his son in jail on Friday, said he was deeply shocked by Michael’s confession.

Mr Davey said: ‘I asked him what
happened and he would only say
that if Trump was elected, it would
change the world and that somebody had to stand up for
America. ‘I have never heard him talk like that before. I can’t understand why he was so motivated and politicized that
he thought grabbing a gun from a
policeman was a good idea.’

Mr Davey said, after spending an
hour talking to his son that he
believes Michael was brainwashed.
