Facebook has refused to run a political ad criticizing President Donald Trump's record on health care, according to a Democratic super-PAC.
The ad shows the growing COVID-19 cases in the United States with a video of Trump saying, "we want to terminate health care."
A clip of Joe Biden saying, "c'mon man" is then interjected.
"Totally kill," Trump says as more of his comments play against Biden's rejoinder. "We almost have Obamacare gone."
The ad urges a vote for Biden.
But Josh Schwerin, the communications director for Priorities USA, said Facebook won't run the ad.
Schwerin posted a screengrab saying the ad "can't run" because "ads must not contain shocking, sensational, inflammatory, or excessively violent content."
