O'Donoghue added that the president had "repeatedly goaded" the crowd over supposed media bias during the rally prior to the incident, a "constant feature" of the rallies.
"With the eyes of the country upon us, all of us together are going to make our stand here in one of the safest cities in America", Mr O'Rourke said.
Asked on Tuesday by Sky News whether it was acceptable for Trump to whip up his fans to the point that a cameraman was attacked, Hunt said: "It is never acceptable when journalists and cameramen are attacked just for doing their job".
A BBC journalist has shared footage from Monday night's Trump rally which appears to show a cameraman being attacked.
O'Donoghue went on to say that he has been "spat at" during previous Trump events.
Video released by the BBC shows Skeans filming Trump during the rally when the camera noticeably begins to shake before falling forward.
BBC Washington producer Eleanor Montague and Washington correspondent Gary O'Donoghue were sitting in front of the camera.
A Trump campaign official later suggested the assailant was drunk, and Trump reportedly gave Skeans a thumbs-up signal, and then continued his speech after the cameraman returned the gesture.
Mr Skeans said the man nearly knocked him and his camera over twice before he was wrestled away by a blogger. Some in the crowd could be heard chanting: "Let him go". Skeans told the BBC that he was blindsided by a "very hard shove" and said the man nearly knocked him and his camera over twice before being pulled away.
A BBC spokeswoman said Skeans was "violently pushed and shoved by a member of the crowd" as he covered the rally. "This is unacceptable in the country of the First Amendment". Trump has frequently been critical of the press at rallies and on social media. It also notes, "The president could see the incident and checked with us that all was OK".
"Here's the moment a guy wearing a red MAGA hat jumped into the media pen and shoved several cameras, including ours", Jacob Rascon, a reporter for KPRC in Houston, said on Twitter.
