The father of a British man accused of trying to assassinate Donald Trump today revealed his ‘insular’ son had travelled to America to be with his girlfriend but had gone off the rails.

Michael Steven Sandford, who appeared in court on Monday, tried to grab a police officer’s gun and wanted to shoot the billionaire Republican presidential candidate on Saturday.

His father Paul Davey told MailOnline he has no idea why his son would attempt to shoot the billionaire presidential candidate and claimed someone must have put the vulnerable boy ‘up to it.’

He also claims that he and Steven’s mother Lynne told American authorities they were worried about Sandford but officials failed to act upon it.

He said: ‘He’s been refusing to come back and we were worried about him, we were in contact with the American Embassy telling them we were worried about him. The American authorities said “he’s over 18 we can’t do anything”.

Sandford loved Robot Wars as a teenager and even bought a machine that was successful in the show, but gave up the hobby because the noise and crowds made him anxious.
