Trump's New Ad Blames Democrats, Migrant Caravan for Violent Crime

Trump, Obama head to Florida this week for push in key midterm races

The incendiary ad released by President Trump showing a laughing illegal immigrant convicted of killing two cops falsely held the Democrats exclusively responsible for his presence in the United States, according to a report.

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.

Trump highlighted the case of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico sentenced to death in California for killing two police officers.

A new Trump campaign ad released online has been called "sickening" and "a new low in campaigning" by Republican Senator Jeff Flake, and is prompting headlines this morning including "Outrage erupts over Trump campaign ad blaming Democrats for immigrant who "killed our people" (USA Today), "Trump shocks with racist new ad days before midterms" (CNN) and "DNC chair blasts Trump ad as "fear mongering" ("Fox & Friends" via Fox News). "This ad, and your full approval of it, will condemn you and your bigoted legacy forever in the annals of America's history books". Trump provides no evidence linking Democrats to Bracamontes.

Joining with her fellow conservative Washington Post colleague, Max Boot, Rubin said Trump and the complicit GOP members have given every Republican a reason to walk away from the party next Tuesday and vote for Democrats.

Some Republican operatives worry that President Donald Trump's recent immigration crusade, while red meat to his base, is alienating suburban women and other swing voters absolutely crucial to the GOP retaining control of the House.

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", said Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, while appearing on Cuomo Prime Time. The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It is not the first time that Trump has used Bracamontes in a political ad. His snarling, expletive-filled rant about killing police officers appeared in a little-noticed January 2018 Trump campaign ad.
