Pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC targets Donald Trump in new advertisements

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Here comes the barrage of political ads.

Priorities USA, a super PAC backing Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, released two campaign advertisements Monday targeting Republican Donald Trump.

Both spots aim to cast Trump in an anti-woman light.

In the first ad, Trump is shown speaking at a rally and saying “nobody respects women more than Donald Trump, that I can tell you.” The 30-second spot, called “Respect,” then goes on to show clips of Trump speaking about abortion restrictions and describing Megyn Kelly.

“Donald Trump is wrong for us,” a chyron says on the screen at the end of the advertisement.

The second advertisement — a 30-second spot called “Speak” — features women of all ages in T-shirts with Trump’s face on them lip-syncing to some of his speeches. At the end of the spot, a woman is heard saying: “Does Donald Trump really speak for you?”

The advertisements, according to the Tampa Bay Times, are expected to be part of a three-week, $6 million ad buy in four swing states, including Florida and Ohio.

“With Donald Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee, we’re going to aggressively take the fight to him starting tomorrow through election day. Donald Trump is a dangerous and divisive con-man who should never be President of the United States,” said  Guy Cecil, co-chairman and chief strategist for Priorities USA Action, in an email to supporters Tuesday. “Whether it’s his dangerous approach to national security, his lack of substantive economic policy, or his divisive positions and offensive statements concerning millions of Americans, especially women, it’s clear that Donald Trump shouldn’t be trusted with leading the country.”
