WASHINGTON -- South Florida, home to the state's sizable Jewish population, is reportedly being hit on the eve of Election Day by an ad warning the constituency of Donald Trump's dangerous targeting of religious minorities.
Over a tape of the Republican nominee calling for a complete and total ban on Muslims entering the United States, the ad replaces his use of the word "Muslims" with "the Jews." An ad running in Utah replaces "Muslims" with "Mormons."
"Don't let Trump win," the ad pleads. "No one is safe unless everyone is safe."
The last-minute campaign has been paid for by Truth PAC, launched only Friday by a former Microsoft and Oracle executive, Dick Brass. In an interview with The Huffington Post that day, he said that he seeks to remind religious minorities of the threat Trump poses to American pluralism.
"I don't want Trump to win," he said. "There are large numbers of people in both of those demographics who have suffered terrible oppression in the history of their cultures. They should be concerned that a president who is willing to ban Muslims might be willing to do other terrible things, too."
Jewish residents comprise of roughly 3% of Florida's population, but are politically active, and make up an average 5% of its voter population.
