Julián Castro Is Buying Ad Time on 'Fox and Friends' to Send a Message About Racism Directly to Donald Trump

Julián Castro Is Buying Ad Time on 'Fox and Friends' to Send a Message About Racism Directly to Donald Trump
Juliàn for the Future

Powerful.

Democratic presidential candidate Juliàn Castro has a message for President Donald Trump. And he thinks he knows the best way to send it.

Castro bought three ad spots for under $2,500 to air Wednesday on Fox News in New Jersey—where Trump is spending the week at his Trump International golf resort. The targeted program slot is during Fox & Friends.


His message?

In the ad shared by Castro on Twitter, the former Mayor of San Antonio and HUD Secretary under President Barack Obama stated:

"President Trump, you referred to countries as shitholes, you urged American Congresswomen to 'go back where they came from,' you called immigrants rapists."

Castro continued:

"As we saw in El Paso, Americans were killed because you stoked the fire of racists. Innocent people were shot down because they looked different from you. They looked like me, they looked like my family."

He ended by saying:

"Words have consequences. Ya basta."

Ya basta is a Spanish phrase equivalent  to telling someone "stop" or "enough already."

Reactions to the ad were mixed online—with accolades from some while Trump supporters decried the message—sparking debate in the comments.

While some seemed to confuse Juliàn with his Texas Democratic Representative brother Joaquin Castro.

According to Maya Rupert, Castro's campaign manager:

"Julián isn't afraid of Donald Trump or his bigoted agenda, and will continue to expose his racism and division until he defeats him next November."
