Donald Trump’s campaign released a new TV ad Friday responding to Hillary Clinton wondering why she isn’t further ahead in the polls.

The 30-second ad begins with a clip of Clinton asking, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead, you might ask?”

A narrator then recites Trump’s presumed answer: “Maybe it’s because the director of the FBI said you lied about your emails,” “because your policies have allowed ISIS and terrorism to spread,” and “because you call Americans deplorable.”

The Trump campaign said the spot will air nationally. The size of the ad buy and how long the campaign planned to air the spot remained unclear.
