President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has launched a new advertisement to attack Democrats for trying to overturn the 2016 election.
The video ad, released on Wednesday, Oct. 9, raised four facts with related footages to paint the face of Democrats before they announced an impeachment probe into the president.
The first fact describes how former Vice President Joe Biden met with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, while the narrator says, “Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its prosecutor.”
The footage then shows Biden attending an event in January 2018 when he said, “If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a [expletive] he got fired!”
In the second fact, the narrator cites a document saying, “The prosecutor said he was forced out for leading a corruption probe into Hunter Biden’s company.”
In the third fact, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) appear before the footage shows President Trump shaking hands with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, while the narrator says, “Democrats want to impeach President Trump for discussing this investigation with Ukraine’s president.”
In the fourth fact, the narrator says, “Donald Trump won, but Democrats want to overturn the election.” The spot is flanked with footage of some outstanding Democratic figures, including presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
“Don’t let them,” the narrator says when a photo of Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) appears.
At the end of the video, President Trump is heard approving his campaign’s message in the ad.
