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

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