Watch Donald Trump Focus on Border in Debut General Election Ad
Donald Trump takes aim at Hillary Clinton on immigration issues and border control in his first television ad of the general election. “In Hillary Clinton’s America, the system stays rigged against Americans,” a voice intones. “Syrian refugees flood in. Illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay: collecting Social Security benefits, skipping the line. Our border open. It’s more of the same, but worse.”
“Donald Trump’s America is secure,” the ad, titled “Two Americas: Immigration,” continues. “Terrorists and dangerous criminals kept out. The border secure. Our families safe. Change that makes America safe again. Donald Trump for President.”
The Trump campaign plans to spend $4.8 million to air this ad – and others – over the next 10 days in crucial battleground states Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida, The Wrap reports. The “Two Americas” spot is the Republican’s nominee’s first television ad since receiving the nomination.
