NBC slammed for airing Trump migrant caravan ad that CNN said was racist

Trump Jr., who has been out campaigning for Republicans, fired a tweet towards CNN on Saturday morning, which included an ad sponsored by his father, that CNN refused to air.

CNN said through Twitter that it was made "abundantly clear" through its coverage that the ad was racist and declined to air it when the campaign sought to buy airtime.

According to CNN's Brian Stelter, Fox News has decided it will no longer air the president's racist ad on either of its two cable news channels.

"Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network", Marianne Gambelli, Fox News' president of advertisement sales, told CNN in a statement.

The ad was part of Team Trump's campaign to demonize immigrants as the pivotal midterms approach to fire up the president's "America First", nativist base.

The 30-second ad focuses on the controversial so-called migrant caravan of asylum-seekers making their way to the USA border.

Asked about organizations pulling his advert on Monday, Trump claimed: "I don't know about it ... we have a lot of ads ... a lot of things are offensive".

The Daily Beast reports the company said in a statement, "This ad violates Facebook's advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it".

Fox News quickly followed in NBC's footsteps.

But the video remains posted, for example, on a Facebook page for the campaign manager for Trump's 2020 reelection campaign and has since been shared on Trump's official Facebook page.

Mr Parscale said the media was trying to control what Americans see and think.

In fact, he was deported and last snuck in when George W. Bush was president, and he was detained but released by former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Trump favorite who later won a presidential pardon.

Before the ad aired, Trump had blamed Democrats for the 7,000-strong caravan. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook's spokesperson said in a statement to CNET.
