Former Vice President Joe Biden used Fox News primetime hosts in a new Spanish campaign ad that claims he is the right candidate to lead the country back to where it was.

The ad flashed images of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham on the screen, followed by images of detention facilities along the southern border used to house illegal immigrants.

“Now Joe Biden is running for president,” the ad says, which was first reported on by The Washington Examiner. “As president, he will unite us all back to the vision of our founders of the United States of America.”

“The founders of our nation set forth the first words of the Constitution, ‘We the people. We the people.’ Not you, but we. We,” it goes on. “But we’ve lost our way. Our politics have become so petty, so negative, so cruel. It’s tearing us apart and dragging us down.”

Biden is not the first candidate to call out Fox News, which is steadily dividing the Democratic field.

Fellow presidential candidate Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced Wednesday that she would not host a presidential town hall on Fox News claiming the network is “a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.”

California Sen. Kamala Harris made the same decision following Warren’s lead, according to Yashar Ali.

Comparatively, four candidates either already appeared in a town hall on Fox News or are scheduled to participate in one. There are others who have expressed an interest in going on the network.
