The entire world has been talking about the Presidential election in the United States, probably and mostly because Donald Trump is involved.
It has been a chaos, with riots, threats and many more crazy things happening over the Presidential election. The craziest among all was when a 20-year-old brit attempted to steal the gun of an armed police officer, so he can shoot and kill Donald Trump.
Michael Sandford, was arrested at a rally in Las Vegas casino after he tried to get a hold on the weapon as he asked for Trump’s autograph.

According to the court, he told the police that, ‘if he were one the streets again tomorrow, he would try this again‘. He was convinced he would die in the assassination attempt, and that he also reserved a ticket for a Trump rally in Phoenix, scheduled for Saturday, as a backup plan.
The court papers also said:
‘Sandford claimed he had been planning to attempt to kill Trump for about a year but decided to act on this occasion because he finally felt confident to do it.’
Heather Fraley, his assigned public defender, said Sandford appeared to be competent. She said though he hadn’t been diagnosed with a mental illness, he has autism and previously attempted suicide.
His mother told the court researchers that he was treated for obsessive compulsive disorder and anorexia when he was younger.
