NBCUniversal Pulls Controversial Trump Campaign Ad

Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back NBCUniversal Pulls Controversial Trump Campaign Ad

Trump was asked Monday whether he thought the ad was offensive. It then tries to paint the caravan of Central American refugees with a broad brush, suggesting that they too may be cop killers like Bacamontes, despite no evidence suggesting such.

CNN said it was made "abundantly clear" through its coverage that the ad was racist and declined to air it when the campaign sought to buy airtime.

"Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network", Marianne Gambelli, Fox News' president of advertisement sales, told CNN in a statement.

The ad is Trump's latest effort to rouse fear about the migrant caravan in the days ahead of the midterm elections.

Although Fox will not show the ad going forward, the network did air the ad over the weekend before deciding to pull the plug on Monday.

I am really glad to have won ... "I think either Chelsea and Liverpool (are contenders), they are very strong, Arsenal as well". Asked about his personal trauma, the Denmark global said: "I spoke to someone".


The ad compares his behavior to members of the caravan, which mostly comprises adults and children who plan to legally seek asylum at ports of entry into the U.S. The video then urges viewers to "vote Republican" before a voiceover from Trump says he approves the message. It is akin to blaming Republicans for criminals who entered the country illegally under Presidents Trump or George W. Bush.

President Trump on Monday defended an anti-immigrant ad critics called racist after several television networks said they would not run it, calling it "effective" and telling reporters their questions were "offensive". He said the media was trying to control what you see and think.

Before the ad aired, Trump had blamed Democrats for the 7,000-strong caravan.

The 30-second clip that played during Sunday's game made connections between immigration and increases in crime even though multiple studies have found immigration does not cause a rise in crime, according to Anna Flagg of The New York Times. Facebook's rules bar ads from containing "shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content". "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook's spokesperson said in a statement to CNET.
