Jeff Flake Calls On ‘Republicans Everywhere’ To Denounce New Trump Ad

Peter Hasson | Reporter

Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake denounced a new campaign ad from President Donald Trump ahead of next week’s midterm elections.

The video featured illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes — who laughed in court about killing two police officers in 2014 — and blamed Democrats for letting him into the country.

Trump tweeted out the ad Wednesday, which spliced clips of Bracamontes with footage from the migrant caravan.

“This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it,” Flake wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Flake previously blamed his frigid relationship with the president for his decision not to run for re-election.
