Trump Spanish-language ad equates progressives, socialists

Source: The Hill

President Trump's reelection campaign in a new Spanish-language ad equates progressive politics in the United States to socialist dictators and politicians in Latin America.

The ad opens with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden saying, "I'm going to go down as one of the most progressive presidents in American history," a snippet from a speech last week in Wilmington, Del. on economic policy for Black and Hispanic communities.

"¿Progresista?" asks a chyron on the ad, before cutting to a montage of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, former Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro, and former Colombian presidential candidate Gustavo Petro, a socialist who lost the 2018 presidential election.

"Our progressive governments," says Chávez; "progressive ideas, the ideas of socialism," says Castro; "this new progressive axis would have very powerful allies," says Petro.

Outside of Florida Cubans I'm not sure any Hispanic would fall for this ad.
