Fox and NBC to stop airing Trump immigrant ad deemed racist

And it's not just NBC that has gotten second thoughts about the ad, which depicts asylum seekers trying to gain lawful entry into the United States as potential psychopathic killers - it's Fox News too.

When challenged on the ad being criticized as offensive, the President responded, "A lot of things are offensive".

The 30 second anti-immigration advert, paid for by the Donald Trump for President campaign, was tweeted out by the president last week and aired during an National Football League game on NBC on Sunday night and on Fox News.

The ad was pulled from Fox News on Sunday, according to Marianne Gambelli, president of ad sales for the network.

Fox News, NBC and Facebook Inc. yanked a controversial political ad about the migrant caravan after critics described the commercial backed by President Donald Trump as racist. But Trump has made the correlation many times, including during his June 2015 announcement, in Trump Tower, that he was running for president.

Stumping for Abrams, Oprah makes impassioned plea for turnout
Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp still leads the Secretary of State's office despite being a candidate for governor. Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

CNN, however, turned the ad down from the beginning, calling it racist and refusing to sell airtime for it. It tied Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican immigrant in the country illegally who was convicted of murdering two Sacramento sheriff's deputies in 2014, to the thousands of migrants who are fleeing Central America, even though Bracamontes is not known to be associated with the caravan.

Fox News, NBC and Facebook have pulled a Donald Trump campaign advert that has been widely condemned as racist.

"After further review we recognise the insensitive nature of the ad and have made a decision to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", an NBC spokesperson said. The ad ended with a message: "Stop the caravan". It was later revealed that Bracamontes had been released from US custody by Trump ally and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. This includes dehumanizing or denigrating entire groups of people and using frightening and exaggerated rumors of danger.

Facebook has a higher standard for ads compared with what users are allowed to post on the social network. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution".
