Jackie Robinson‘s daughter says she’s straight-up “insulted” her father’s image was used in a campaign ad on Donald Trump‘s official YouTube page … and she’s now demanding the president remove it immediately.
POTUS’ team posted a pro-Trump campaign video Tuesday featuring some iconic pictures of legendary Americans … including Martin Luther King Jr. and Jackie Robinson.
The ad — titled “Say What You Will About America” — urged citizens to vote for Trump … and as of Thursday afternoon, it had over 5 MILLION views.
But, Sharon Robinson says she’s LIVID the president would even consider using her dad’s image in the video … explaining there’s no way in hell the baseball legend would have supported a re-election for Trump.
“Jackie Robinson’s family strongly objects to the use of Jackie Robinson’s image in a Donald Trump [ad],” she said Thursday.
“The Trump campaign is in opposition to all that Jackie Robinson stood for and believed in. We’re insulted and demand that his image be removed!”
Meanwhile, MLK’s daughter, Bernice King, also found Trump’s use of her father’s image in the ad “beyond insulting” … and she demanded the president remove the photo as well.
I find President Trump’s use of my father’s image in his political ad beyond insulting and not reflective of #MLK’s commitment to creating the #BelovedCommunity. My father should not be used in ways strongly misaligned with his vision and values, @realDonaldTrump. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/7AwySnFFOw
