Fox Newssaid Monday it has stopped airing the controversial political ad paid for by President Donald Trump's campaign, which likens members of the Central American migrant caravan to a man convicted of killing police officers in the U.S.
President Trumpresponded to the networks pulling the ad by telling reporters, "A lot of things are offensive.your questions are offensive".
Cut to Monday when, per the New York Times, all three media companies announced that they would no longer be running the ads after the intense backlash. In a remarkable omission, the ad fails to mention that the killer, Luis Brocamontes, entered the country illegally during the George W. Bush administration (that's a Republican, for those keeping track at home) and was arrested and released in 1998 by the Maricopa County sheriff's department led by Joe Arpaio, whom the president pardoned.
Fox News, NBC and Facebook have pulled a Donald Trump campaign advert that has been widely condemned as racist. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.
Before the ad aired, Trump had blamed Democrats for the 7,000-strong caravan. Facebook's rules bar ads from containing "shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content".
