New Hillary Clinton Ad Links Trump to the KKK

New Hillary Clinton Ad Links Trump to the KKK


What’s below will likely go down as one the most memorable ads of the 2016 presidential campaign.  This Clinton ad runs at a time when Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is attempting to make progress with African American votes.

From saying “he doesn’t know” about white supremist supporting him to professional race baiter Steve Bannon of Breitbart being hired as a top advisor to his campaign, Trump may have an uphill fight convincing people he’s not racist.

Trump has branded African Americans within the context of crime and poverty. That’s been a strange and certainly deliberate way to brand African Americans as she speaks to white middle class voters on “law and order” and other issues.
