A new campaign advert for Donald Trump's re-election campaign has falsely suggested that a former US governor is from China.

Now that Trump knows that he will be facing Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, he has gone on a full assault against the former vice president.

However, in the latest video Trump's own campaign team a clip of Biden meeting the former governor of Washington, Gary Locke in 2013.

Locke also served as U.S. ambassador to China and was the commerce secretary under the Obama administration but is from Seattle.

Unfortunately for Trump, the video appears to suggest that in this moment Biden is meeting an official from China as it attempts to shame and portray Biden as favouring Chinese prosperity over the United States.

In fairness to Trump, this is a blink and you'll miss it a moment in the video but we'll post the image below just in case you miss it.

Regardless if this was a mistake or not, it's still pretty eye-opening that someone on Trump's campaign team wouldn't recognise a former state governor.

This comes after weeks and weeks of Trump being criticised for consistently calling coronavirus 'the Chinese virus' as the illness originated in Wuhan, China.
