Donald Trump’s worst fears about Latin America – the ones that led him to promise to build a wall along the southern border of the U.S. – may be coming true.
At least, that’s what an ad for the 2016 Copa America tournament claims, promising a wave of conquering Argentinians heading north.
“The best that you can do is not let us enter,” the ad says.
’These are total killers’
Created by Argentinian broadcaster Torneos y Competencias (TyC), it splices footage of the country’s national football team – featuring superstar Lionel Messi – with Trump’s speeches warning that “our country is in serious trouble.”
“These are total killers, these are not the nice sweet people you think, we have no protection,” Trump warns, as Argentina dribbles past helpless defenders and knocks in goal after goal.
The 100-year-old Copa America, which kicks off on June 3, decides the champions of South America. This year marks the first time it has been held in the United States.
’I love Hispanics’
While the ad mocks Trump’s earlier critical comments, he has since made attempts to reach out to Hispanic voters.
Days after becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump tweeted a picture of himself eating a Trump Tower Grill taco bowl, wishing readers a happy Cinco De Mayo.
“I love Hispanics,” he added.
