Statement from WHCA President Olivier Knox on blocking of photographer at Trump rally

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

By now, you’ve seen the photograph from the Trump rally yesterday that shows an aide with his hand over a photographer’s lens, an attempt to prevent our colleague from getting a picture of a protester at the event.

I have spoken to both the White House and the Trump campaign. The White House referred me to the campaign.

The Trump campaign assures me that these were the actions of an inexperienced volunteer, who understands that he acted in error. The campaign has taken him off the road, and promises that this will not happen again.

Thanks to those of you who brought this to my attention last night. Please feel free to reach out to me and your other Board members anytime you run into a problem.

Best,

Olivier
