NBC says it will stop airing Trump immigrant ad

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC says that “after further review,” it will stop airing President Donald Trump’s campaign advertisement that featured an immigrant accused of murder.

The advertisement aired on “Sunday Night Football” and on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday.

CNN rejected the same ad, declaring it racist. That drew a public rebuke from the president’s son, Donald J. Trump Jr.

NBC said Monday that in its further review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad.
