Julian Castro Hits Trump With Fox & Friends Ad

But Julián Castro is taking a more direct route by addressing the President directly in a new ad that will air several times on Fox News in Bedminster, N.J., where Trump is spending yet another weekend golfing at one of his country clubs.

He called out Trump's use of "sh-hole countries" to refer to Haiti and some African nations, and for the president telling four Democratic congresswomen of color to "go back" where they came from, even though three were born in the US and the fourth was a naturalized citizen.

"Words have consequences", Castro says, and then in Spanish: "Ya basta". By airing his ad during that broadcast, Castro targeted the ad to maximize the likelihood the president would see it himself.

"As we saw in El Paso, Americans were killed because you stoked the fire of racists", Castro admonishes in the half-minute video.

"Innocent people were killed because they look different from you". Because they look like me. "They look like my family", continued Castro.

As the Democratic primary race heats up, candidates are preparing their attacks on the policies and rhetoric of Donald Trump.

Now, the Trump donors outed by Castro have banded together as the "Texas 44" to raise money for the Trump 2020 campaign.

In a statement, Castro's campaign manager Maya Rupert focused on Trump's hardline and nativist comments about immigrants, portraying Castro as best equipped to stand up to the president. Trump lashed out at the Castros on Twitter while visiting shooting victims in El Paso. He said separately in a prepared speech that "hate has no place in America".

Julián Castro has a plan to hit back at President Donald Trump after a recent Twitter attack against the Democratic candidate and his twin brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX). The Texas congressman was facing criticism from Republicans after he publicized already public information about San Antonio residents who donated to Trump's reelection effort. "Joaquin is not the man that his brother is, but his brother, according to most, is not much".

Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh dismissed Castro's ad.
