Trump’s First Ad Puts Focus Back on the Border
It opens with a colorless image of Hillary Clinton looming in front of a bleak Capitol.
“In Hillary Clinton’s America, the system stays rigged against Americans,” the narrator says. “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.”
The ad then takes a turn for the triumphant, contrasting that dark reality with the promise of a better future.
“Donald Trump’s America is secure, terrorists and dangerous criminals kept out,” the narrator says over images of helicopters, families, and battleships. “The border secure. Our families safe. Change that makes America safe again: Donald Trump for president.”
