Facebook pulls controversial Trump anti-immigration ad

Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back

According to HuffPo, "NBC on Sunday aired a controversial political ad paid for by President Donald Trump's campaign during the prime-time commercial breaks for Sunday Night Football".

NBC was first to announce its decision, doing so after a backlash over its decision to show the 30-second spot during "Sunday Night Football".

That racist Trump ad WAS running on Fox News, but not anymore: "Upon further review, FOX News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either FOX News Channel or FOX Business Network", ad sales president Marianne Gambelli says.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "CNN refused to run this ad..."

"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", an NBC spokesperson said in a statement to CNN, which has declined to run the ad at all. The ad, endorsed by President Donald Trump, was created to fire up fears of a migrant caravan headed toward the United States in advance of Tuesday's midterm elections.

Fox News was not immediately reachable for further comment.

Speaking on UK TV show "Loose Women", she said: "It's just the four of us, but she might join us at some point". It was previously announced that she would not be joining her former bandmates for their comeback tour.

"Dangerous illegal criminals like cop killer Luis Bracamontes don't care about our laws", the ad said, even though there is no known connection between Bracamontes and the migrant caravan.

Asked about charges that the ad - which several networks have either refused to air or chose to stop running - was offensive, the president went on the offensive himself.

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.

Their decision follows CNN's decision to block the ad.

Mr Parscale said the media was trying to control what Americans see and think. The ad blames Democratic Party immigration policies for the killings. 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. Facebook's rules bar ads from containing "shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content".
