NBC says it will stop airing Trump immigrant ad

Trump was asked Monday whether he thought the ad was offensive.

NBC said Monday that in its further review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad. The ad focuses on the migrant caravan traveling through Mexico, saying it's filled with "dangerous illegal criminals".

CNN called out the ad as blatantly "racist" in replying to critical tweets from Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, who charged that the network would "only run fake news and won't talk about real threats".

CNN had earlier declined to run the ad, deeming it racist. The pro-President Trump ad gave voters a dire warning about the migrant caravan headed toward the USA border.

SNL’s Pete Davidson mocks candidate who lost an eye in Afghanistan blast
Donald Trump Jr., the President's son, tweeted that the comment "sounds more like leftist editorial than anything these days". His website describes how he lost his eye: "On Dan's third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever".

The ad compares his behavior to members of the caravan, which mostly comprises adults and children who plan to legally seek asylum at ports of entry into the U.S. The video then urges viewers to "vote Republican" before a voiceover from Trump says he approves the message. It aired once on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" and three times on MSNBC, according to Comcast Corp.'s NBCUniversal.

But the video remains posted, for example, on a Facebook page for the campaign manager for Trump's 2020 reelection campaign and has since been shared on Trump's official Facebook page. He said the media was trying to control what you see and think.

Fox News said it would also stop playing the ad. According to the Daily Beast, Facebook advertising data reveals that millions of Facebook users-somewhere between 2.8 million and 5 million of them-viewed the ad before it was removed.

Before heading to the first of his three pre-election day rallies today, President Donald Trump spoke to reporters and got a question about the ad that networks either refused to run or pulled entirely. The ad blames Democratic Party immigration policies for the killings. Under its rules, ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.
