Trump TV Ad Attacks Democrats, Media As ‘The President’s Enemies’

President Donald Trump’s campaign on Sunday released a 30-second TV spot attacking Democrats and the media as “enemies” who are “obstructing” Trump’s agenda.

“Democrats, obstructing. The media, attacking our President. Career politicians, standing in the way of success. But President Trump’s plan is working,” a narrator says in voiceover over a series of headshots.

The narrator cites employment and stock market data and touts “the strongest military in decades” as proof of Trump’s alleged success.

“The President’s enemies don’t want him to succeed,” the voiceover continues, over a collage of reporters’ faces. “But Americans are saying let President Trump do his job.”

The Trump campaign said the ad will air nationally and online but did not specify the size of the ad buy or how long it will run.

Watch the ad below:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
