Parscale didn't mention Fox News.

CNN had previously determined that the Trump campaign's advertisement was racist and declined to sell airtime for it.

Marianne Gambelli, Fox News' president of advertising sales, said the commercial was pulled on Sunday "upon further review".

Over the weekend CNN said that it had "made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist".

Asked about charges that the ad - which several networks have either refused to air or made a decision to stop running - was offensive, the president went on the offensive himself. It tied Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican immigrant in the country illegally who was convicted of murdering two Sacramento sheriff's deputies in 2014, to the thousands of migrants who are fleeing Central America, even though Bracamontes is not known to be associated with the caravan.

Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted that NBC News, CNN and Facebook had chosen "to stand with those illegall in this country". The ad said Trump and his allies will protect the border and urges viewers to "vote Republican".

The song includes lyrics directed at President Trump with lines like, "How do you win if we all lose?" "Let me just say this". She expressed ire over it during her 2016 tour, telling the crowd of thousands: "It's Streisand, soft, like "sand".

After CNN, NBC News, Fox News and Facebook either refused to run or stopped running a racist ad funded by his 2020 reelection campaign, President Donald Trump was dismissive Monday.

Trump was asked Monday whether he thought the ad was offensive. He added: "We have a lot of ads, and they certainly are effective based on the numbers we are seeing".

"After further review we recognise the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", an NBC spokesperson said.

The fact that the Comcast-owned net would take the ad and run it put more than a fright into a number of Hollywood players, with Judd Apatow and Will & Grace star Debra Messsing chastising NBC. NBC aired the ad during the Sunday Night Football game where the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots were playing against each other.

The ad can still be posted on the social network, but not through Facebook's political ads platform. Ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content.
