KENYA BROWN - Thursday, September 10, 2015
Donald Trump "helps" Mexico fire the first salvo ahead of October's CONCACAF Cup game.

If the United States national team needed any inspiration as they head into next month's CONCACAF Cup playoff game against regional rival Mexico, they would need to look no further than to an ad being run on Mexican television with U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as the centerpiece.

TV Azteca has been running an ad that takes clips from Trump's campaign speeches and scenes from previous encounters between the U.S. and El Tri.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you," Trump says before images of players such as former Mexican internationals Jorge Campos, Cuauhtémoc Blanco and current international Giovani dos Santos appear on screen with their respective Major League Soccer teams.

"Our country is in trouble. We don't have victories anymore," Trump continues as scenes of past games between the rivals are shown - Mexico being shown in victory while the U.S. appearing defeated.

The ad wraps up with Trump saying: "The American dream is dead."

Trump's controversial comments infuriated many people and now they are only adding fuel to the fire of rivalry that's already been a heated one over the years.

The CONCACAF Cup game is set for Oct. 10 at the Rose Bowl in California. The winner will represent CONCACAF at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
