Fox News and Fox Business will no longer run a provocative Trump campaign ad many have decried as racist.
Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin reports:
“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” said ad sales president Marianne Gambelli in a statement to Mediaite.
NBC drew outrage after the network aired Trump’s ad during Sunday Night Football.
The 30-second spot, a version of which Trump tweeted out last week to much outrage, warned of a “7,000-migrant caravan” approaching the U.S. border with Mexico. It also featured Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant convicted of murdering two sheriff’s deputies in 2014, falsely claiming that Democrats “let him into our country.”
Per the New York Times, the ad that aired on NBC Sunday night — during a game between the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots — cut the false claims about Democrats, but still tied immigrants to crime.
Watch the ad below and decide for yourself:
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
