Trump called racist AGAIN after tweeting campaign video featuring Mexican cop killer

Trump, Obama head to Florida this week for push in key midterm races ‘Sickening’: Trump shocks with new ad blaming Dems for illegal immigrant who killed officers
Ray Hunter | 02 November, 2018, 14:30

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. But in '88, Bush himself tried to distance himself from the ad made by a pro-Bush PAC and on which, coincidentally, former Fox News chief Roger Ailes was an adviser.

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", said Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, while appearing on Cuomo Prime Time. And as the fear-mongering reaches its peak, the screen goes black, and the words, "President Donald Trump and Republicans are making America safe again" pop up to reassure us all that we're in good hands. His snarling, expletive-filled rant about killing police officers appeared in a little-noticed January 2018 Trump campaign ad.

"This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it", said Republican Sen.

TV news outlets spent last night and this morning comparing the video to one used so effectively in 1988 by George H.W. Bush's camp to kneecap Dem presidential candidate Michael Dukakis. He then reportedly returned to the U.S. in 2001, was deported, then returned again in 2002, all during Republican George W. Bush's administration. The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Bracamontes video is one of at least two fear-based ad campaigns Trump has promoted on Twitter in recent days.

Horton was a convicted murderer who committed rape while furloughed under a programme in MA where Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis was governor.

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

President Trump is leading an 11th-hour Republican charge in Florida amid a surge of interest from young voters that could secure the pivotal state for the Democrats on Tuesday.

The whole advert centered around William Horton, an African American man who in 1987, raped a white woman and stabbed her white fiancé, after he was released on a weekend furlough from the MA prison where he was serving his life sentence.

"This may be the most desperate and vile ad since Willie Horton", Reich said on Twitter.

But the Trump campaign was behind an earlier January 2018 video, released on its YouTube page, that featured Bracamontes's courtroom appearance.
