The ‘sickening’ Trump ad that links cop killer to caravan migrants

  • Michael Bloomberg the billionaire former mayor of New York City has pumped more than $40 million into super PACs in October

As Scott Shackford noted here, Donald Trump has released an unmistakably nativist, racist ad depicting Latino illegal immigrants as insane cop killers whom Democrats allow to freely roam the country at murderous will.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp, who is facing re-election in a state Mr Trump won by almost 40 points in 2016, is considered the most endangered Democrat in the Senate.

The 53-second video released Wednesday evening remains pinned to the top of the president's popular Twitter feed. Text over the video reads "Democrats let him into our country", and "Democrats let him stay".

President Donald Trump is taking his immigration message to Missouri as he continues his campaign rally blitz leading up to the midterm elections.

The video has been denounced by Democrats and some Republicans as racist for comparing Bracamontes with the caravans of migrants heading toward the United States from Central America.

Merkel’s CDU makes huge losses in Hesse election
However, the SPD's historic losses could mean yet more pain for the chancellor's already troubled government coalition in Berlin . Her CDU party and SPD coalition won the election but haemorrhaged support leaving the partnership teetering on a knife-edge.

Some Democrats, including Robert Reich, who served as secretary of labour in the Clinton administration, compared the spot to the 1988 "Willie Horton" ad, which supporters of Republican then-candidate George H.W. Bush used to great effect against Democratic rival Michael Dukakis.

Shackford's main point was that Luis Bracamontes, who now sits on death row in California, is in no way representative of illegal immigrants, much less legal ones. Those rules are partly in place to address concerns that politicians could try and distance themselves from harsh attack ads, so as not to muddy themselves in the process.

Trump had a meeting on election security Thursday with FBI Director Chris Wray, members of the Justice Department, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen (KEER'-sten) Nielsen and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.

President Donald Trump says Democrat Stacey Abrams is not qualified to be Georgia's next governor "by any stretch of the imagination".

"This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it", said Republican Sen. "I hope this doesn't work".

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent Thursday and Parscale did not respond to requests for comment. That ad was part of a blitz by Trump's campaign, and his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did several interviews to promote it. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration. During his 2016 campaign, he frequently appeared with so-called "angel families" - those who lost loved ones at the hands of immigrants in the nation illegally.
