United States GOP Senate candidate Eric Greitens, the disgraced ex-governor of Missouri, has released a second campaign ad promoting violence against his political opposition.

Greitens, who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, was widely condemned after the release of a spot last month in which he encouraged his supporters to "hunt" Republicans who have broken away from Trump.

Greitens' latest stunt is equally as provocative.

"We're back, and everybody remembers when we first rolled on the scene," Greitens says while exiting a pickup truck and holding a sniper rifle.

"Well I'm no career politician. I'm a Navy SEAL, and I'll take dead aim at politics as usual," he continues as he lines up his sight and blows up a target.

"And everyone also remembers that because I fought for you, they came after me. But we're back, wiser, stronger, and still fighting. And this time, with an army of patriots," Greitens adds.

Two camouflaged individuals emerge from a field behind Greitens, who then destroys a secondary target.
