closing midterm election argument about immigration - a move critics immediately denounced as a racist campaign tactic.

Trump shared this frightening visual aid with his 55.5 million Twitter followers, along with the caption "Vote Republican now!" and in under 24 hours it had already been viewed nearly two million times.

The video includes scenes of a migrant "caravan", warning, "Who else would Democrats let in?"


It is not the first time that Trump has used Bracamontes in a political ad.

Horton was a convicted murderer who went on a crime spree while on furlough from prison under a program supported by Dukakis, then governor of MA.

The whole advert centered around William Horton, an African American man who in 1987, raped a white woman and stabbed her white fiancé, after he was released on a weekend furlough from the MA prison where he was serving his life sentence. See Ad Age's coverage at the time: "Watch: Disturbing Trump Ad Calls Dems "Complicit" in Murders Committed by Illegal Immigrants." Bracamontes also starred in a Trump ad released in January, titled "Complicit", in an effort to drum up support for the border wall.


"This ad, and your full approval of it, will condemn you and your bigoted legacy forever in the annals of America's history books", Al Cardenas, the Florida Republican Party's former chairman, wrote on Twitter. "I hope this doesn't work".

The dark video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life.

As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent Thursday and Parscale did not respond to requests for comment. That ad was part of a blitz by Trump's campaign, and his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did several interviews to promote it. The man also featured in a January video tied to the anniversary of Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration.


Bracamontes was sentenced to death in April for killing Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Sheriff's Detective Michael Davis Jr.in a daylong crime spree that began at a Motel 6 on Arden Way and ended in Auburn. During his 2016 campaign, he frequently appeared with so-called "angel families" - those who lost loved ones at the hands of immigrants in the nation illegally.
