Trump Jr. gripes after CNN rejects ad it calls racist
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.
