Julián Castrohas a message for Donald Trump, and he’s making sure he sees it…

The  44-year-old Mexican American Democratic presidential hopeful has bought a half-minute of ad time on the president’s go-to appointment show, Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friendsto deliver a personal message to the president.

“As we saw in El Paso,” the former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and former mayor of his native San Antonio, Texas, says on camera, “Americans were killed because you stoked the fire of racists. Innocent people were shot down because they look different from you because they look like me. They look like my family.”

Castro is among a number of Democratic presidentlal candidates who’ve labeled Trump a “racist” and/or “white supremacist” since the August 3 shooting in which 22 innocents lost their lives. 

Castro doesn’t make that claim in the ad but does make it clear that he believes the president’s rhetoric inspired the shooter.

Trump went to the Texas border city days after the attack but was displeased with what he considered unfavorable news coverage that focused on protests over his visit. Since then the president has made conflicting statements concerning background checks for people who want to purchase a gun.
