Trump's New Ad: Social Security Lies, White Nationalist Sources
Donald Trump hasn’t spent much money on political ads so far, but when he does he makes sure they have as many lies as possible.
Case in point:
Here’s his new political ad called: “Two Americas: Immigration”
In Hillary Clinton’s America, the system stays rigged against Americans Illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay, collecting Social Security benefits, skipping the line.
Syrian refugees flood in. Illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay. Collecting Social Security benefits, skipping the line. Our border open. It’s more of the same, but worse.“
Trump’s America is secure. Terrorists and dangerous criminals: kept out. The border: secured. Our families: safe. Change that makes America safe again.
Micheal Hiltzik of the LA Times writes a great piece that debunks the Social Security lies embedded in this ad:
Bluntly speaking, these statements about Social Security are untrue. Here are the facts:
1. Unauthorized workers are not permitted to collect Social Security benefits.
2. No one can collect Social Security benefits he or she didn’t earn from working in Social Security-covered employment.
