Trump Tweets Controversial Video of Immigrant Cop Killer

US President Donald Trump has sparked outrage after tweeting an official Republican Party ad which condemns Democrats' immigration policies as a threat to the country.

The video was reminiscent of the infamous "Willie Horton" ad used against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988 and condemned as racist advertisement.

On the same day Trump tweeted the Bracamotes video, he also posted a similar campaign-ad styled video on his Twitter feed with a hashtag #JOBSNOTMOBS.

The Daily Beast reported that Bracamontes was deported to Mexico in 1997 under the Democratic administration of Bill Clinton.

Now, Luis Bracamontes' menacing smile has abruptly taken a central role in Trump's closing midterm election argument about immigration as the president tweeted out a video of the Latino man's courtroom appearance in what was immediately denounced by some Democrats and Republicans as a racist campaign tactic. Trump and Republicans have opposed making the gun illegal. With the rise of social media, campaigns and PACs that post ads on their social media accounts have brought a whole new grey area in town, according to experts.

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", Perez said on CNN's 'Cuomo Prime Time.' "This is fear mongering". The campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


CNN political analyst John Avlon reminded her that former RNC chair and George H.W. Bush adviser Lee Atwater had apologized for the race-baiting Willie Horton ad shortly before his death in '91.

"This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it", said Republican Sen.

"The legacy of these sorts of ads and political plays are not good; they bring shame to the candidate and the people who worked on them", he added.

Horton was a convicted murderer who went on a crime spree while on furlough from prison under a program supported by Dukakis, then governor of MA.

"The Willie Horton ad gave George Herbert Walker Bush his one big black eye in history", said Brinkley.

Bracamontes is a ruthless murderer who made headlines for his lack of remorse and violent outbursts in court, but what the video wanted viewers to focus on is that he was in the United States illegally at the time of his daylong crime spree. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration.
