NBC Airs Trump Immigration Ad That CNN Passed On Because It Was Too ‘Racist’

On Sunday, NBC ran the immigration ad that President Donald Trump tweeted earlier this week, a video that CNN declined to air because the content was too “racist,” The New York Times reported.

The 30-second ad — which ties an undocumented immigrant who was convicted of murder to the caravan of migrants still hundreds of miles from the border — ran on NBC during “Sunday Night Football.” The ad was sponsored by¬†Donald J. Trump for President.
