If you call the White House comment line this is the message you'll hear: "Thank you for calling the White House. Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because congressional Democrats are holding government funding…hostage"
1. The Trump White House is comically attempting to distance itself from incendiary ad by Trump campaign.
2. Marc Short, the Trump White House’s director of Legislative Affairs, is claiming the ad, which links Democrats to murder, was created by a "third party group." It was created by the Trump campaign
The ad literally ends with the line "I'M DONALD TRUMP AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE" #whitehousemessage#TrumpShutdown#GOPshutdown
