Donald Trump Jr. is crying on Twitter because CNN refused to air his father’s racist ad which contains fake news. The ad, which was widely criticized, features a man who is accused of killing two police officers while on trial in 2014. Trump pinned the controversial ad on Twitter where it sat for days, claiming that Democrats allowed Luis Bracamontes back into the country. However, he was readmitted to the U.S. during President George W. Bush’s time in office and Sheriff Joe Arpaio — who Trump pardoned — freed the man for unknown reasons. The ad targets the migrant caravan which is just under 1,000 miles away from our border. “Who else would Democrats let in?” the narrator of the fake news ad asks. We didn’t realize that Joe Arpaio was a Democrat.
Trump’s eldest son took to Twitter to whine about the network not airing the footage.
“CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda,” Don Jr. tweeted. “Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote #voterepublican”

CNN chimed in to say that the ad was racist so they declined to air it.
CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts. 🍎

Sen. Jeff Flake called the ad “sickening.”
This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it. https://t.co/5sftOt57pI

Trump is propagating false claims in order to throw red meat to his base. Like father, like son.
