Trump called racist AGAIN after tweeting campaign video featuring Mexican cop killer

Trump Tweets Willie Horton-Like Anti-Immigration Ad

Trump Tweets Willie Horton-Like Anti-Immigration Ad

Trump, whose administration takes a hard-line approach to legal and illegal immigration, has focused on the caravan to drum up support for Republican congressional and gubernatorial candidates ahead of Tuesday's congressional elections.

By 2002, he traveled back to the USA and married an American citizen, staying in the country.

It includes scenes of a migrant caravan moving toward the USA, warning ominously, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggesting that more violence would soon penetrate the border. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration.

In the waning days before the midterm elections, Trump tweeted the 53-second ad that features Luis Bracamontes hurling profanities while on trial in Sacramento, Calif.

TV news outlets spent last night and this morning comparing the video to one used so effectively in 1988 by George H.W. Bush's camp to kneecap Dem presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.

President Donald Trump launched an ad Wednesday warning Americans of violent crime, not from the extremists who shot up a synagogue or mailed bombs in the past week, but a crime committed by an undocumented immigrant four years ago. The tweet is pinned to the top of the president's Twitter page so as to be prominent.

Gaza rockets hit Israel, army strikes Hamas targets in response
The rocket attacks followed the death of four Palestinians participating in a protest along Gaza's perimeter fence with Israel. Air raid sirens sounded throughout the night in southern Israel, with militants firing some 30 rockets, the military said.

The whole advert centered around William Horton, an African American man who in 1987, raped a white woman and stabbed her white fiancé, after he was released on a weekend furlough from the MA prison where he was serving his life sentence.

"This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it", said Republican senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a frequent critic of Mr Trump. "The insinuation is, if you elect Governor Dukakis as president, we're going to have black rapists running amok in the country".

An official with the Republican National Committee told ABC News that the video was produced for the Trump campaign but was not a paid ad.

"Who else would Democrats let in?" the text now asks while flashing back to Bracamontes' evil grin.

ERROR: Macro /ads/dfp-ad-article-new is missing! It 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. The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
