NBC pulls Trump's anti-immigration ad after SNF airing

Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back

The ad, paid for by Donald J. Trump for President, links an undocumented immigrant convicted of killing two police officers in 2014 to the caravan of migrants fleeing from violence and crime in Central America.

CNN previously had declined to run the advert, which it described as "racist".

NBC said Monday that in its further review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad.

The president tweeted out a video of the ad on October 31, and the ad aired during "Sunday Night Football", which is one of the most watched programs on television, regularly averaging more than 10 million viewers.

NBC responded on Monday, saying that it determined that the content was inappropriate and that it would stop running it on its airwaves.

Unsurprisingly, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was none too pleased.

The advert features ominous-sounding music as a voice warns urgently about "the 7,000-migrant caravan" that it said was "marching toward our border".

"Dangerous illegal criminals like cop killer Luis Bracamontes don't care about our laws", the ad said, even though there is no known connection between Bracamontes and the migrant caravan.

Facebook said Monday it will remove the ad from its platforms. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

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

The ad was not submitted to either ABC or CBS, according to sources close with CNN. This tweet was in response to a tweet by the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., in which he accused the network of "only run [ning] fake news" and not talking about "real threats that don't suit their agenda". When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. "Those are the facts.", wrote CNN's communications department.
