Trump political ad assailed as 'sickening,' racially divisive

Trump political ad assailed as 'sickening,' racially divisive Trump political ad assailed as 'sickening,' racially divisive

"President Trump's blatantly racist ad - showing an illegal immigrant boasting about killing police officers - is a fitting final pitch for a party and a campaign that are now almost entirely focused on whipping up xenophobia".

In the video he sports a shaved head and long chin hair and speaks in accented English.

In one example of his all-in play to his most loyal supporters, Trump issued a new attack on the 14th Amendment, which guarantees that even children born on United States soil to undocumented immigrants are American citizens, at a rally Thursday night in Missouri. "Who else would Democrats let in?"

A pair of Bush ads, one of which was the brainchild of Fox News founder Roger Ailes, depicted Dukakis - then the governor of MA - presiding over a "revolving door" prison system and giving out "weekend passes" to convicted murderers. Dukakis went on to lose to Republican George H.W. Bush. The conservative Breitbart News faithfully chronicled his conviction and death sentence.

The tweet stirred up controversy, and some replies to the tweet criticized Trump for focusing on Bracamontes and not USA citizens who committed mass shootings.

The video is pinned to the top of his Twitter page.

For instance, Mitt Romney - who hired the team behind the Horton ads in his 2012 campaign against Barack Obama - was accused of playing into similar racial fears in advertisements attacking the president's health care and welfare policies.

"I can tell you that it's definitely part of a divide-and-conquer strategy that a lot of politicians, including the president, have used successfully in the past", Curbelo said Thursday on CNN.

Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, called the new ad the "dog whistle of all dog whistles".

The video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life.

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent on Thursday (local time) and Mr Parscale did not respond to requests for comment.

Some noted that while Bush tried to distance himself from the Horton ad, which was not directly financed by his campaign, Trump has given the Bracamontes ad his full endorsement. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration.
