    Donald Trump Mocked in Lionel Messi Copa America Ad

    Published 5 May 2016

    The video is a commercial from Argentina's TyC Sports network to promote the Copa America tournament that will be held in the United States this summer.

    An Argentine TV station is lampooning U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump's comments about illegal immigration from Latin America to promote next month's regional Copa America soccer tournament held in the United States.

    "Our country is in serious trouble!" Trump says in the commercial made by TyC Sports, which will broadcast for the June 3-26 centenary tournament in the soccer-obsessed South American country.

    "We are having people coming in through the border that are not people that we want," the candidate adds as images of Lionel Messi and other top Argentine players descend from a plane to meet fans dressed in the national blue-and-white colors.

    The comments used in the advertisement are taken from Trump's speeches. His campaign has not responded to the 71-second ad.

    The billionaire real estate mogul has caused indignation south of the U.S. border with his views on immigration and his promise to build a "great wall" along the Mexican border.

    "They're coming from South America," Trump says in another clip from his speeches used by TyC.

    "These are total killers," he adds in the footage, as the camera zooms in on Messi's face. "These are not the nice, sweet little people that you think. We have no protection."

    "They're unchecked, and then they're being sent all over the United States," Trump intones while the names of tournament host cities like Seattle and Houston flash on the screen.

    At the end, the TyC ad shows a line of text, also in blue and white, that teasingly aligns itself with Trump: "It's true. The best thing you can do is not let them in."

    This is the first year the tournament, referred to in English as the 2016 Centennial Copa America, will be hosted outside of South America. It also marks the 100th anniversary of the world's oldest international soccer competition.

    Former reality television star Trump won a commanding victory in Indiana's Republican primary on Tuesday, forcing his main rival, Ted Cruz, to drop out of the race.

    The presidential election will be held in November.
