CNN Refuses To Air Trump Anti-Immigration Ad

Trump's reelection campaign didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

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

NBC said Monday that in its further review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad.

The ad also showed a clip of the migrant caravan heading toward the US border from Central America with the caption "Who else would Democrats let in?"

That racist Trump ad WAS running on Fox News, but not anymore: "Upon further review, FOX News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either FOX News Channel or FOX Business Network", ad sales president Marianne Gambelli says.

The 50-year-old actress, who is very politically active on Twitter, slammed NBC for airing a racist political ad that referred to the Central American migrant caravan ahead of the midterm elections. The pro-President Trump ad gave voters a dire warning about the migrant caravan headed toward the USA border.

Newlyweds killed in helicopter crash after wedding
Bailee Ackerman and William Byler were married Saturday, before being whisked off to a ranch near Uvalde, Tex. The Houstonian student newspaper reported that the newlyweds were seniors at Sam Houston State University .

Fox News said it would also stop playing the ad.

Unsurprisingly, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was none too pleased. NBC aired a 30-second version of the video during their Sunday Night Football broadcast but subsequently distanced themselves from it on Monday morning.

The president's son, Donald Trump Jr., had tweeted over the weekend, noting CNN's refusal to air the advertisement, that "I guess they only run fake news and won't talk about real threats that don't suit their agenda".

"This ad violates Facebook's advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it", the company said in a statement. He said the media was trying to control what you see and think. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

Many have compared the caravan commercial to the infamous Willie Horton ad during the 1988 presidential campaign that damaged the prospects of Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis.
