While touting US troops, Trump ad shows Russian-made fighter jets (Trump ad makers as genius as their boss?)

A digital ad released by a fundraising arm of the Trump campaign on Sept. 11 calling on people to “support our troops” uses a stock photo of Russian-made fighter jets and weapons. The ad, which was made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, features silhouettes of three soldiers walking as a fighter jet flies over them. The ad first appeared on Sept. 8 and ran until Sept. 12.

Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies in Moscow, confirmed to Politico that the planes are MiG-29s — utilized by Russia since the Cold War — and also that one of the soldiers in the Republican ad appears to be carrying an AK-74 assault rifle.
