Anti-Trump Ads Remind Us That A Guy Who Talks About Banning Entire Religions Shouldn’t Be President

What if Donald Trump had proposed banning all Jewish people from the United States? That’s what one outside group wants voters to think about as they head to the polls on Tuesday.

Truth PAC, launched Friday by Dick Brass, a former Microsoft and Oracle executive, is airing a pair of ads in Florida and Utah to remind voters of when Trump called for all Muslims to be banned from immigrating to the United States. (The Republican nominee later walked back that proposal, saying he was in favor of “extreme vetting” rather than a blanket ban.) 

The ads feature a clip of Trump reading aloud a news story about himself at a campaign rally.

“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” he says. 

But in the ad airing in Florida, the word “Muslims” is changed to “the Jews.”
