Trump's election campaign uses stock military image of Russian fighters


The ad, which has since been removed’ was created’ by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, which runs the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Trump campaign. The stock image shows five soldiers in a salute opposite the sunset as three planes fly overhead.

Perry Spree, who helped design the US Air Force, told Politico that the jet in the ad was "definitely a MiG-29", as Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Center for Strategies and Technologies in Moscow did.

"I am happy to see that she is helping our troops," said Sperry.

Politico said Trump's campaign did not respond to a request for comment, and the RNC declined to comment.

The MiG-29 was designed’ by the Soviet Union to compete with American fighter jets in the 1970s.

He appeared in a campaign advertisement at a time when, according to recent reports from intelligence officials, the Russian government is interfering in the US election by trying to weaken Democratic candidate Joe Biden in order to increase Trump's chances of winning.

This month, Microsoft warned that Russian hackers were targeting US political campaigns. On Sunday, Robert Mueller, a former member of the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 US election, said Trump was "compromised by the Russians."

Mueller, a special adviser appointed after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow, but rejected numerous allegations and safe sentences from Trump's close associates. ۔ He also had extensive contacts with Moscow.

On September 9, Brian Murphy, a former top intelligence official at the Department of Homeland Security, accused Trump loyalists of manipulating intelligence reports in the department, beginning in 2018, in order to prevent Russian election interference. The risk can be’ reduced.
