Donald Trump is being heavily criticised for tweeting out a "racist" video

President Donald Trump has pushed the boundaries of campaign finance rules with a controversial new video that accuses Democrats of blindly opening USA borders to undocumented immigrants, even those who kill police officers.

"Let me say this: Up until today, I would've said, 'If the election were held today, we would win, '" Pelosi said on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

The online ad features courtroom footage of Luis Bracamontes - an illegal immigrant from Mexico convicted in the 2014 killings of two police officers in Sacramento, California - saying in accented English he would kill more cops.

US President Donald Trump faced scathing criticism on Thursday for an advertisement linking Democrats and immigrants to violent crime, with some fellow Republicans blasting it as "sickening" and the most racially divisive political ad in three decades.

GOP Sen. Ted Cruz is seen with a lead in his race with Democrat Rep. Beto O'Rourke in Texas.

Two races for governor have drawn widespread attention.

Democrats are generally favoured to win the 23 seats they need to gain a majority in the US House of Representatives, an advantage they could use to block Trump's agenda.

"There is some ambiguity about when a disclaimer is required for ads posted exclusively on social media, and the Trump campaign may be trying to assert a loophole", Brendan Fischer, who is in charge of the government reforms program at nonprofit Campaign Legal Center, told ABC News.
