<p>CNBC provided coverage on the final two nights of the Republican National Convention and on Thursday, <em>Squawk on the Street</em> co-host and infamous GOP debate co-moderator Carl Quintanilla condemned Donald Trump&rsquo;s mentioning of Americans being murdered by illegal immigrants because it reminded him of the Willie Horton ad from 1988.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Upon hearing a clip of Trump rail against illegal immigration, CNBC contributor and former Bush administration official Sara Fagen promptly pointed out that Trump <strong>&ldquo;took every controversial thing he has said in this campaign and he doubled down on it in this speech tonight&rdquo;</strong> as opposed to change his tone in a traditional pivot to the general election.</p>
