And yet the list of current elected Republicans who are raising alarms about Trump closing his campaign with the most open appeals to white racial resentments & fears since George Wallace (and maybe more overt than even him) includes….waiting, waiting, waiting. https://t.co/lvVTyGIeWO

That racist Trump ad WAS running on Fox News, but not anymore: "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 says. https://t.co/BJWKspmiwM

Trump claims he didn't know his campaign's immigration ad now will not air on Fox, NBC and CNN.
"I don't know about it, you're telling me something I don't know … We have a lot of ads."
He added: "A lot of things are offensive … Your questions are offensive.”

Notice how the clear use of "racist" to describe this advertisement changed the entire conversation surrounding it. Not racially charged. Not plays on racial anxieties. But racist https://t.co/T1u3yyyNkL
