'He acts like a caudillo.' New anti-Trump ads compare him to authoritarian leaders

MIAMI — The largest Democratic super PAC in the U.S. is launching a new series of attack ads starring a group of Florida Latinos who’ve fled oppressive governments in their home countries, featuring footage of President Donald Trump alongside images of Fidel Castro, Nicolás Maduro and Augusto Pinochet.

Priorities USA, which teased this recent slate of ads last November, is using anti-Trump testimonials from one Cuban and three Venezuelan immigrants to compare Trump’s rhetoric to that of a Latin American “caudillo,” or an authoritarian dictator. The digital commercials will begin to publish on social media platforms on Monday with the hashtag “#CaudilloDay,” a nod to the Presidents Day holiday.

“What is a caudillo? An authoritarian. A demagogue. A dictator,” the campaign’s introduction ad says in bold white letters on a black backdrop while suspenseful music plays in the background. “Donald Trump does not act like a president. He acts like a caudillo. (It’s not a compliment).”

The first-person commercials, which are largely videos shot in selfie-mode, will be published on Facebook, Twitter and Google. It’s a campaign that Priorities USA Hispanic media director Daniela Martins said was “organic” and is not funded by the political action committee in its current initial phase.

2. El Caudillo is Spanish for Der Fuehrer.



Destroyers of Democracy. Satan’s bedfellows.
