The White House Correspondents' Association said Friday that the Trump campaign has taken action against the volunteer who tried to block a photographer from taking photos of a protester during a Thursday night rally.
"The Trump campaign assures me that these were the actions of an inexperienced volunteer, who understands that he acted in error," WHCA president Olivier Knox said in a statement. "The campaign has taken him off the road, and promises that this will not happen again."
The incident was captured by an Associated Press photographer when it occurred at a "Make America Great Again" rally in Evansville, Indiana, when a female protester interrupted Trump's speech, and displayed her middle finger when the crowd razzed her.
