Trump Re-Ups Controversial Mexico Wall and Muslim Ban in First Campaign Ad

Donald Trump First TV Ad Campaign Commercial 2016 (SB50)

Update: Trump Ad Shows Footage of Migrants in Morocco, Not at 'Southern Border' (The Hill)

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has released his first, long-promised campaign ad: a spot that touts his controversial proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US “until we can figure out what’s going on”.

The ad then promises Trump will “quickly cut the head off of Isis and take their oil”.

In the 30-second spot, the narrator also declares that Trump will build a southern wall to prevent immigrants from illegally crossing over the US border with Mexico. Over a somber piano melody, the narrator assures listeners that Mexico will pay for the wall.

A spokesperson for Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto said in August that the country, an important trading partner for the US, would do no such thing.

“Of course it’s false,” Nieto spokesman Eduardo Sanchez told Bloomberg. “It reflects an enormous ignorance for what Mexico represents, and also the irresponsibility of the candidate who’s saying it.”

President Barack Obama appears in the clip alongside Hillary Clinton, just before the frame changes to show an image of people on stretchers behind photos of the alleged gunman in the San Bernardino shooting.
