Watch: Donald Trump's latest attack ad portrays Hillary Clinton like a barking dog

Very mature.

Is this what we want for a President?

DONALD TRUMP’S LATEST attack on Hillary Clinton portrays the former Secretary of State like a barking dog in the face of Isis and Vladimir Putin.

The video was posted to Trump’s Instagram and Facebook accounts with the property tycoon asking,

Is this what we want for a President?

The video features clips of Putin tackling an opponent in judo and militant ‘Jihadi John’ with the caption,

When it comes to facing tough opponents we don’t need to be a punchline.

Included in the video is an out of context clip of Clinton in which she barked like a dog on front of a crowd in Nevada.

In that instance, Clinton joked that it would be great if a dog barked every time a Republican candidate lied on the campaign trail.

Earlier today, next Monday’s planned Republican debate in Salt Lake City was cancelled when Trump said he would not be participating and Governor John Kasich said he would not either if the frontrunner wasn’t.

After months of campaigning, the crowded Republican field is now down to Trump, Kasich and Senator Ted Cruz.

Senator Marco Rubio became the latest to leave the contest after he lost the primary in his home state to Trump last night.
