Trump Jr. gripes af­ter CNN re­jects ad it calls racist

The Tribune (SLO) (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

Don­ald Trump Jr. com­plained Satur­day about CNN’s re­fusal to air an elec­tion ad re­leased by his fa­ther, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, last week.

“I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda,” Trump Jr. tweeted, link­ing to a shorter, 30-sec­ond ver­sion of the ad.

The ad and video fea­ture Luis Bra­ca­montes – an un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grant con­victed of mur­der­ing two Cal­i­for­nia sher­iff’s deputies – in an ap­par­ent at­tempt to drum up im­mi­gra­tion fears.

CNN’s pub­lic re­la­tions depart­ment re­peated a state­ment made last week: The ad was racist.
