White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah on Thursday criticized a campaign ad from a Democratic House candidate in Virginia that compares President Donald Trump to Osama bin Laden as “nothing short of reprehensible.”

"Leaders from across the political spectrum — starting with Leader Pelosi — must swiftly condemn this abhorrent message."
