Man tries to kill Trump – level 2

29-06-2016 07:00

A British man tried to take Donald Trump’s life at a rally. He planned to kill Trump for a year and he went to a gun range a day before the incident.

He lives in the USA, and now he faces 10 years in jail. His mother is devastated.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
