Republican National Committee launches Donald Trump re-election ad

Donald J. Trump TV commercial

Just 165 weeks out from the 2020 election, the Republican National Committee is launching a nationwide TV commercial Thursday to re-elect President Donald Trump.

The 30-second spot “Finish The Job” boasts of  a million new jobs, a record stock market, a stronger border, and a stronger military. It also contends Trump is achieving these as “career politicians and the media” are trying to stop him.

The commercial is being paid for by the Republican National Committee, authorized by Trump’s re-election campaign, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.

According to a press release from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., the spot begins airing Thursday, nationally on cable TV networks.

“In a very short time, President Trump has already achieved great success,” Michael S. Glassner, executive director of the Donald J. Trump for President Inc., stated in the news release. “The President has led a growing resurgence in our economy, creating over one million new jobs, and he has demonstrated a new brand of leadership, changing how America confronts challenges in the world. We are pleased to showcase a few of President Trump’s achievements to date and stand ready to support his successes that lie ahead, including his fervent commitment to cut taxes this year for hard-working Americans.”
