A man has been charged for trying to grab a police officer`s gun at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas so he could kill the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

According to a complaint filed in US District Court in Nevada, Michael Sandford tried to disarm the officer at the June 18 rally at the Mystere Theatre in the Treasure Island Casino before being overpowered.

"Sandford revealed that he made a conscious effort to come to Las Vegas to kill Trump," the complaint states.

"Sandford acknowledged that he would likely only be able to fire one to two rounds and stated he was conviced he would be killed by law enforcement during his attempt on Trump`s life."

It said that Sandford, who had a British driver`s license, told investigators that he had purchased tickets for a rally in Phoenix where he "would try again to kill Trump" in the event his plan in Las Vegas failed.
