CNN Refuses to Air Trump Campaign’s “Racist” Caravan Ad – Then Lectures Donald Trump Jr. in Response
CNN is claiming that an ad from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. which focuses on illegal immigration is “racist” and is refusing to air it.
The ad focuses on the migrant caravan marching towards our border and features cop killer Luis Bracamontes, who was deported twice and snuck back in, murdered two police officers and was seen laughing in court about his crimes.

“I killed f‐‐‐— cops,” Bracamontes says in the video.
As footage of his startling behavior in court plays, text at the bottom of the screen states that “Illegal immigrant, Luis Bracamontes, killed our people. Democrats let him into our country. Democrats let him stay.”
The ad continues on to show a deported migrant from one of the caravans saying that he wants to be pardoned for attempted murder.
“Who else would Democrats let in?” The ad asks.
CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote #voterepublican pic.twitter.com/VyMm7GhPLX

The network faced backlash from Trump supporters on social media over their refusal to air it, including from Donald Trump Jr.
“CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Sunday.
CNN responded to Trump Jr. on Twitter claiming that the ad is racist.
“CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts,” CNN Communications responded — adding an apple emoji at the end.

In CNN’s Orwellian worldview, American citizens having concerns about the people storming our borders is the problem — not the MS-13 members and other unknowns that are on their way here.
