President Donald Trump refrained from posting new tweets this morning, so as to keep the Willie Horton-esque ad he had unveiled for Halloween at the top of his stream.

With only a few days left until the midterm election, Donald Trump has stepped up his anti-immigration, fear-mongering, polarizing tactics with a blatantly racist new ad that even has some conservatives finally saying he's gone too far.

"President Trump's blatantly racist ad - showing an illegal immigrant boasting about killing police officers - is a fitting final pitch for a party and a campaign that are now almost entirely focused on whipping up xenophobia".

The 53-second video includes expletives uttered by Bracamontes during his trial as he professed regret at not killing more officers. Democrats let him into our country.

Bracamontes, an immigrant living in the country illegally, sports a shaved head and long chin hair and speaks in accented English in the video, and his words are clear: He's killed cops and he's "gonna kill more cops soon".

Many recalled the infamous "Willie Horton" campaign ad from the 1988 presidential election between George H.W. Bush and Democrat Michael Dukakis.




Because Dukakis supported the furlough program, the commercial implied (specifically to scared white voters) that if they let this Democrat become President, homicidal Negroes would be allowed to flood their streets, and rape even more of their defenseless white women.

The video was produced for the Trump campaign.

.

"This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it", said Republican senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a frequent critic of Mr Trump. Reporter for the Daily Wire, Ryan Saavedra tweeted that Democrats would "look like fools" if they appeared to be defending criminals like Bracamontes by attacking Trump over the ad. "I hope this doesn't work".

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez characterised the ad as "distracting, divisive Donald at his worst".

The dark video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life. In an interview with CNN, Perez described the ad as "fearmongering". The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration.
