"You understand that, never".

"Any guy that can do a body slam - he's my kind of guy", Trump said to cheers and laughter from the crowd. Even though the incident drew considerable attention, Gianforte defeated his Democratic opponent the next day.

Fox News reporters who witnessed the attack later recalled: "Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him".

"Not just once but twice tonight the president is making jokes about assaulting reporters while the whole world is demanding answers about the murder of a journalist who died in the most gruesome and vicious way possible", Acosta said.

Riyadh is suspected of murdering Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and USA permanent resident whose writings have been critical of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
