    Tell me again how he's not running a negative campaign? How he's not trying to divide this country. How the last images aren't anti-semitic.

    He just gave the "liberal" media so much to nail him for 48 hours before the election.

    Love how he thinks he is leading a game changing movement for the people and by the people. Guy spent his life making billions by ******** on the little guy and taking advantage of every loophole possible. Now he's a people person!

    As a Jew I don't really find this antisemitic. Jewish people have long represented themselves as leaders in the financial industry. The reality that Janet Yellin and Lloyd Blankfein happen to be Jewish is simply a fact and I see why Trump would mention the Federal Reserve and Goldman Sachs in his advertising. Goldman Sachs of course was highly implicated in the 2008 economic disaster and Clinton's Goldman speeches have frequently been a topic of discussion. George Soros is a pretty disliked individual by conservatives, not because he's Jewish but because of his political investments and idelogy.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't perceive this message of "Jews rule the world and steal your money". After all, the focus of this advert is Clinton. I think most people don't even know the people shown in this video or that they are Jewish.

    I find this an example of digging very hard to fit Trump back into the white supremecist mold by any means possible.

    I will say that Cartoon his campaign had out a while ago with money and the six-pointed star was very questionable (before they edited it to a circle of course).

    No deflection. Further opinions in alignment with my thoughts.

    Do you know what deflection means?

    The video (end) made me uncomfortable. Like other things he's said or eluded to in the past - it came off, to me, a dig. Did I immediately think "anti-semitic" - perhaps not that word. But it was something.

    You spend way too much effort replying to this guy.
    It should be obvious what he is doing.

    Being a long time Democrat who has already voted I don't see this ad as "Off the rails".

    If it quacks like a duck.

    There's no need to try and fit his campaign into the white supremacist mode. The campaign has done it itself. The Trump sons have regularly appeared on white nationalist radio as well as re-tweeting them. Breitbart runs his campaign.

    The theme is the same as classic anti-semitism.

    Pretty sure this country was divided before this election and will continue to be after this election.

    "Power" to the suckers who think Trump gives a rats *** about them.
    --- Post Merged, Nov 6, 2016 ---
    Though there might be some unity from the sheer hatred that people from both sides of the political aisle have towards Trump. A hatred that will only grow if he is put in office. (the notion this guy puts forth that his popularity will grow by 2020 is hysterical)

    If there is a God, they are rolling their eyes right now.

    Not such a terrible ad for the wanna-be Molester-in-Chief.

    But it simply portrays what he thinks is wrong with America. He doesn't say whatsoever how he's going to make it great again.

    Maybe the US is differnt, but I find a businessman like trump talking about 'Anti Establishment' really really ironic/stupid, Especially as Trump from my perception is amongst the business people that he seems to suggest are part of screwing the US over.

    The world isn't being screwed over by "businessmen".

    They are being screwed over by the globalists.

    All Trump did was bring it out in the open.

    Most of the screwing over I see being done is by greedy business people and governments that do the bidding of those people. If Trump is anything like many Australian business people, he probably minimises his tax, and to my viewpoint that is screwing people over. I pay my full taxes, so should business people. Certain governments won't close these sorts of loopholes though as that would anger those who they really care about.
