An incendiary video tweeted Thursday by President Donald Trump not only shockingly compared members of a migrant caravan heading to the U.S.to an immigrant cop-killer, it also falsely held the Democrats exclusively responsible for his presence in America.

Dukakis supported the furlough program.

They doubled-down on their criticisms of the video, saying: "The Trump campaign ad is the latest example of the President's willingness to lie and fear-monger in order to tear at racial and societal divides; to embrace demagoguery to bolster his own political power and the cause of the Republican midterm campaign". And Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., seeking re-election in a Democratic-leaning South Florida district, said he'd not seen the video but criticized Trump's use of it.

Writing in the Washington Post, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin scalded GOP leaders for standing by while President Donald Trump ramps up anti-immigrant hysteria and racism, before calling out the Fox News network for acting as his megaphone. Dukakis went on to lose to Republican George H.W. Bush.

Trump, whose administration takes a hard-line approach to legal and illegal immigration, has focused on the caravan to drum up support for Republican congressional and gubernatorial candidates ahead of Tuesday's congressional elections. The tweet is pinned to the top of the president's Twitter page so as to be prominent.

It is unclear who created, or paid for the ad.

Meanwhile, CNN reports that Republican Sen. "I hope this doesn't work".

The video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life.

That ad was part of a blitz by Mr Trump's campaign, and his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did several interviews to promote it. CBS News is not posting the video here because of the language used.

"This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst", said Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, while appearing on Cuomo Prime Time.

Bracamontes, who grew up in Sinaloa, Mexico, entered the U.S. illegally in 1993 at age 16 and Democrat Bill Clinton was president, according to the Sacramento Bee. During his 2016 campaign, he frequently appeared with so-called "angel families" - those who lost loved ones at the hands of immigrants in the nation illegally.
