A new campaign ad out Tuesday declares Donald Trump is a “builder, businessman, success” and draws on archival footage of the Clintons being interviewed about Gennifer Flowers.

“It’s a movement, not a campaign,” the 30-second spot begins. The TV ad, which a statement from the campaign said would air nationally on cable and select broadcast programming, features footage of Trump visiting building sites and shaking hands with supporters as well as images of tall Trump branded buildings.

As a voiceover says, “leaving the past behind,” the ad shows a shot of a screen playing an interview with Bill and Hillary Clinton, which Politico identified as video from a 1992 episode of “60 Minutes” where Bill Clinton denied having an extramarital affair with Gennifer Flowers.

That interview was the catalyst for Flowers to hold a press conference where she played garbled tapes of conversations with Clinton that she secretly taped. Years later, Clinton would acknowledge he had a sexual encounter with Flowers.

In the campaign statement, Trump spokesman Jason Miller touted the “positive energy” of the GOP nominee’s campaign.
