Trump Tweets Willie Horton-Like Anti-Immigration Ad

Share

The video alleges without evidence that Democrats were responsible for allowing Bracamontes into the USA, and comes amid a frenzy of hardline immigration proposals pushed out by Mr Trump in the final stages of the campaign, including sending troops to the border and revoking birthright citizenship.

The video is being compared to one that was released by George Bush's campaign during the 1996 election, which was was said to have used racist imagery.

To that point, on Wednesday evening Trump tweeted the above campaign ad with footage of the murder trial of Luis Bracamontes, who was was sentenced to the death penalty back in April for the killing of two California police officers.

Then, the ad cuts to a video of a large group of people holding Honduran flags marching through streets, then the unknown people trying to break down a fence, and finally, a Fox News interview with a man that's part of the migrant caravan headed toward the United States.

Horton was a convicted murderer who went on a crime spree while on furlough from prison under a program supported by Dukakis, then governor of MA. "We understand this is an issue that motivates his base, but the economic issues are what we really need to win these swing voters because they are who's going to decide who controls the House", adding that Trump "is solidifying swing voters who were already leaning Democratic and are now definitely going vote for Democratic candidates".

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", said Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, while appearing on Cuomo Prime Time. "This has been Donald Trump's playbook for so long".

The report also said that the President continued to use a cellphone despite warnings from aides that calls on it were not secure. Effectively, it operated as an email device, and Mr Obama was only able to receive correspondence from specific email addresses.

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent Thursday and Parscale did not respond to requests for comment. Conservative commentator Scott Jennings also admitted to Cuomo that he wasn't surprised by the depravity of the ad, stating, "I don't see anything in this video that I haven't heard from the President consistently for the past couple of years". Trump provides no evidence linking Democrats to Bracamontes.

Bracamontes was in the country illegally at the time of the shooting.

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.

"The Willie Horton ad gave George Herbert Walker Bush his one big black eye in history", said Brinkley.
