Trump Touts Plans To Ban Muslims, Build Border Wall In First TV Ad

January 4, 2016 6:47 a.m.

Donald Trump on Monday morning released his first television ad, which promotes the Republican presidential candidate’s proposals to ban Muslims from traveling to the United States and to build a wall along the southern border as part of his plan to defeat “radical Islamic terrorism.”

The ad will air in Iowa and New Hampshire beginning on Tuesday, and Trump will spend at least $2 million on ads each week, according to a statement from the campaign.

Trump told the Washington Post on Sunday that his campaign is working on an additional six to eight ads that will be part of his planned advertising blitz. He will eventually begin airing ads in South Carolina and Nevada as well, according to the Post.

Watch the ad on Trump’s campaign website.
