Peepaw Trump's campaign ad asking people to 'support our troops' uses images of Russian jets

The ad shows the silhouettes of American troops as the jets emerge above their heads. Speaking to POLITICO, aerospace engineer Pierre Spray identified the aircraft as “definitely a MiG-29,” noting they angle of the aircraft’s tail and the space between the engines.
Director of Moscow’s Centre of Analysis and Strategies and Technologies, Ruslan Pukhov, confirmed Spray’s account, adding that the soldier to the right in the image is carrying an AK-47, which is a Soviet-era assault rifle.

The image used in the ad can be found on Shutterstock.com.

1. Not just to support our troops but to buy American

Stock footage isn’t usually free. So they’re offshoring their ad production, seems like, at least to an extent. Of course his commie friends are probably giving it to him in exchange for ... destroying America? Looking the other way? Sharing secrets? Idk.

That and the maga hats made in China kind of says it all.
