On Thursday, Sharon Robinson, the daughter of barrier-breaking baseball legend Jackie Robinson, tweeted that she opposes the use of her father's picture in a campaign ad for President Donald Trump — and said her whole family was "insulted."


The image appeared in an ad titled "Say What You Will About America," and featured Robinson alongside images of Martin Luther King Jr. and Native American Olympic medalist Jim Thorpe.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that he is the greatest president for African-Americans since Abraham Lincoln — a statement in contrast with recent polls showing he is in single digits with Black voters.
