By The Daily Caller. Donald Trump Jr. hammered CNN Saturday morning by posting a campaign ad the network “refused to run,” featuring unrepentant cop killer Luis Bracamontes. . .
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 ad, also posted by the president earlier this week, links Bracamontes, who returned to the United States after being deported and killed two police officers in 2014, with the approaching migrant caravan.
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. 🍎

Trump Jr., CNN Spar Over Airing of ‘Racist’ Ad From Trump Campaign
By Washington Examiner. . President Trump has seized upon the caravan of migrants fleeing violence in Honduras and the broader issue of immigration in his final pitch to voters for why they should support Republicans in Tuesday’s elections.
The ad from Trump’s presidential campaign features footage of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico who was sentenced to death for killing two California sheriff’s deputies in 2014.
“Dangerous illegal criminals like cop killer Luis Bracamontes don’t care about our laws,” the narrator in the ad states. “America cannot allow this invasion. The migrant caravan must be stopped.”
“President Trump and his allies will protect our border and keep our families safe,” it continues. “America’s future depends on you. Stop the caravan. Vote Republican.”
In the run-up to Tuesday’s midterms, the president has sent more than 5,200 active-duty troops to the border to deal with the caravan and told reporters he could deploy up to 15,000. (Read more from “Trump Jr., CNN Spar Over Airing of ‘Racist’ Ad From Trump Campaign” HERE)
