Anheuser-Busch InBev on Wednesday released a 60-second Super Bowl commercial focused on the company's founder, German immigrant Adolphus Busch.
Though Budweiser stated that the commercial celebrated the American Dream and was not a comment on the current political climate, the ad was released days after Trump, 70, signed an executive order temporarily banning refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran and Iraq.

Busch is going to back to their roots for their Super Bowl debut.
