NBC Airs Racist Trump Ad About Immigration, Migrant Caravan

Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back NBC Airs Racist Trump Ad About Immigration, Migrant Caravan

"President Trump and his allies will protect our border and keep our families safe", according to the ad, which urges viewers to vote Republican.

NBC, Fox News and Facebook said in separate statements on Monday that they will no longer run the Trump campaign's anti-immigrant advertisement that many are calling racist.

CNN quickly condemned the ad, running multiple articles that condemned the ad and the 2016 GOP election strategy in general as "racist".

The ad includes footage of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico sentenced to death in California for killing two police officers.

"After further review, we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", Joe Benarroch, a spokesperson for NBC's advertising sales department, said in a statement Monday.

Mac Miller: US rapper died from drug overdose

Middleton also indicated he did not believe there was any malicious intent. News Radio 1310 has reached out to the school district for comment.

Unsurprisingly, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was none too pleased. The ad was first released last week. The ad drew a comparison between Bracamontes and the thousands of migrants who are now fleeing Central America and making their way to the United States-Mexico border (aka the "caravan"). The ad that ran on NBC did not make any claims about Democrats letting Bracamontes into the United States.

"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", an NBC spokesperson said in a statement to CNN, which has declined to run the ad at all.

People familiar with the matter told CNN that the advertisement was not submitted to either CBS or ABC. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution".

On Saturday, Donald Trump Jr. blasted CNN for refusing to run the ad, which prompted the network to respond on Twitter, saying it was "abundantly clear" the ad was racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined.
