Donald Trump latest attempt to gain votes, with video claiming democrats let in a killer immigrant.
The US mid-term elections are fast approaching and on Tuesday 6th of November 2018 it will be decided whether republicans or democrats will keep control of both chambers in congress.
With less than a week to vote, Donald Trump has pinned a diverse campaign style ad video to his Twitter account.
The video blames democrats for letting in Luis Bracamontes, who is an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who killed two police officers in Sacramento in 2014.
The video posted by President Trump shows Bracamontes grinning in court and threatening to “kill more cops soon”.
People have compared Trumps ad to infamous Willie Horton ad attack in 1988 by the then democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis.

Just 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate, and all of the 435 seats in the lower House of Representatives are up for grabs.
To take control of the legislative agenda and block Trump’s ability to implement his programs, the Democratic party needs to control both houses.
Trump would require Republican votes even if the Democrats won every available seat next week.
