Image of Jackie Robinson in new Trump ad “Say What You Will About America”

*A new Donald Trump campaign ad featuring an image of Jackie Robinson has driven the baseball legend’s daughter to release a statement denouncing both the video and the president.

“Jackie Robinson’s family strongly objects to the use of Jackie Robinson’s image,” Sharon Robinson tweeted 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!”

The Trump ad, called “Say What You Will About America,” also uses an image of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other historical photos of Black Americans.
