Video of cop killer becomes Trump campaign push

Some noted that while Bush tried to distance himself from the Horton ad, which was not directly financed by his campaign, Trump has given the Bracamontes ad his full endorsement.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump managed to condense his anti-immigrant fear-mongering ahead of the November 6 midterms into a single, 51-second advertisement, which even some on the right are immediately decrying as "racist".

Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico, was sentenced to death in California for the 2014 killings.

The spot includes expletives uttered by Bracamontes during his trial professing regret at not killing more officials. "Democrats let him stay". The video shows Bracamontes laughing about his crime and promising to "kill more cops soon".

The advertisement recalls the notorious "Willie Horton" campaign ad financed by supporters of the George H.W. Bush campaign in the 1988 presidential election.

Because Dukakis supported the furlough program, the commercial implied (specifically to scared white voters) that if they let this Democrat become President, homicidal Negroes would be allowed to flood their streets, and rape even more of their defenseless white women.

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.

"I can tell you that it's definitely part of a divide-and-conquer strategy that a lot of politicians, including the President, have used successfully in the past", Mr Curbelo said on CNN. Thirty years later, critics say Trump is hoping the same sort of propaganda will work for him, although his approach is clearly not much better.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez characterised the ad as "distracting, divisive Donald at his worst".

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent Thursday and Parscale did not respond to requests for comment.

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

But the Trump campaign was behind an earlier January 2018 video, released on its YouTube page, that featured Bracamontes's courtroom appearance. That video was timed to the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration and meant to promote his immigration agenda.
