Trump sparks outrage with ‘racist’ immigration ad ahead of midterm elections

Adjust Comment Print

With days to go before the midterm elections, President Trump has tried time and again to turn the nation's attention to immigration with headline-grabbing moves.

"They will impose socialism in Florida, welcome to Venezuela", Donald Trump said Saturday night in Pensacola, Florida, at a rally in support of Republican candidates in the Senate and the governorship, Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis.

The video alleges without evidence that Democrats were responsible for allowing Bracamontes into the United States, and comes amid a frenzy of hardline immigration proposals pushed out by Mr Trump in the final stages of the campaign, including sending troops to the border and revoking birthright citizenship. He also talked about the low unemployment rate.

The Labor Department on Friday reported sharply better-than-expected job creation in October, with the unemployment rate steady at a 49-year low of 3.7 per cent and wages notching their best annual gain in nearly a decade.

"And they're going to be saying what a good job they're going to do by raising your taxes".

In West Virginia, Trump is campaigning for the GOP Senate candidate, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who's in a tight race with the current senator, Democrat Joe Manchin. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA for criticism.

Two federal courts on Friday issued rulings ordering the state to allow some 3,000 naturalized USA citizens to vote in Tuesday's elections and prevent the state from throwing out some absentee ballots.

However, policy experts say while premiums on the health care marketplace are leveling out this year, premiums would have actually gone down had it not been for the actions of Republicans to "decimate" the ACA, according to a story from NPR.

In the episode, two-division champion Daniel Cormier sharpens all of his skills at Renzo Gracie's New York City gym. People still don't believe Daniel Cormier . "If my wife is in town I eat her ass", he said.

"The Democrats' immigration program is to bring drug trafficking, human smuggling, and criminal cartels", he also said in Montana.

The clip, which shows Bracamontes smiling as he brags about the killings, has been denounced as a racist campaign tactic by both Democrats and Republicans alike. Jeff Flake, a sharp critic of Trump, opted to retire, acknowledging that he could not win a GOP primary in the current political climate.

But Trump said, "All I'm doing is just telling the truth".

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

Should Democrats manage to retake the House, he and his White House allies will simply focus on Republicans' hold on the Senate, Politico reported Friday.

Trump had said that he told the US military mobilizing at the southwest border that if USA troops face rock-throwing migrants, they should react as though the rocks were "rifles". "How can he mobilize those who are already registered to vote to go out and vote". Twenty-seven states plus the District of Columbia have recorded more early votes at this point in the campaign than they did in all of 2014, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout.

The White House and the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comments as to who made or paid for the video or if any tax dollars were used to run it from the President's account.

Twitter Inc said it had deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday's elections and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company. This year, 33 seats plus two retiree seats (Republican Thad Cochran of MS retired earlier this year and Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is retiring imminently) are being contested. Republican candidates in competitive races are split between those who support Trump's crackdown and immigration limits and those who warn that the president has gone too far, says Chmielenski.
