Trump praises congressman who assaulted journalist

Representative Greg Gianforte, who made brief remarks at the rally with Trump, was ordered to perform community service as part of his sentence for attacking Ben Jacobs, a correspondent for Britain's Guardian newspaper, on May 24, 2017, the day before a special election to fill Montana's sole congressional seat.

Trump referenced Gianforte again later in the rally when discussing former Vice President Joe Biden, who once said he would "beat the hell out of" Trump if they were in high school.

"Any guy that can do a body slam - he's my kind of guy", Trump said to cheers and laughter from the crowd.

The comment comes at the same time as the administration responds to the disappearance and apparent murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. "There's nothing to be embarrassed about", Trump said.

At a campaign rally in Montana tonight, Trump first said "never wrestle him", after calling Gianforte up on stage. I know Montana pretty well.

Watch Pig On The Run Follow Police Home
California police used a bag of Doritos to lure a giant pig, who escaped and was found wandering around a neighborhood. They made a trail with the chips and the pig followed.

"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. The judge called Gianforte's actions "totally unacceptable" but gave him a six-month deferred sentence.

President Trump quipped Thursday one of the best things about being president is no one wonders anymore whether he wears a toupee.

US President Donald Trump on Thursday praised a US congressman who assaulted a reporter, making light of the attack.

Khashoggi is a Saudi native and legal U.S. resident who lived in Virginia.
