Video of cop killer tweeted by Trump denounced as racist

DNC chair on immigration ad Trump at his worst

With the midterms less than a week away, President Trump has made immigration and the migrant caravan a major issue.

"Illegal immigrant, Luis Bracamontes, killed our people!", the video states, adding, "Democrats let him into our country".

It's even being unfavorably compared to the Willie Horton ad of former President George H.W. Bush's campaign, in which Bush painted Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as "soft on crime" by connecting him to a horrific story of a black criminal who raped a white woman and stabbed her white fiancee while on furlough from prison.

The video focused heavily on Luis Bracamontes, who was a twice-deported Mexican immigrant who was sentenced to death for killing two police officers.

The ad cuts between clips of Bracamontes and scenes of migrants, likely a reference to a caravan of up to 3,000 Central Americans headed through southern Mexico en route to the US border. "This ad, and your full approval of it, will condemn you and your bigoted legacy forever in the annals of America's history books". Democrats let him into our country. Jeff Flake said the ad "is just a new low in campaigning".

In a first reaction, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said the ad was a sign of desperation and suggested that Trump was losing the argument over health care that is at the center of the Democratic campaign. In an interview with CNN, Perez described the ad as "fear-mongering".

Elon Musk says $20 Million Tweet fine was worth it
On a conference call with analysts, Musk said the company had delivered more cars in the past quarter than it did in all of 2016. According to the newspaper, the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted former employees of the company to interview them.

Democrats are generally favored to win the 23 seats they need to gain a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, an advantage they could use to block Trump's agenda.

Horton, who was African American, raped a woman after he was released on a weekend furlough from a MA prison where he was serving a life sentence in 1987.

There are attack ads, and then there are Willie Horton-type attack ads. "They've resorted to fearmongering".

Bracamontes was in the country illegally at the time of the shooting.

The video shows a Latino man in court, smiling menacingly.
