Trump Campaign Releases New Ad on Economy

Republican nominee Donald Trump's campaign unveiled a new ad on Monday that is part of a $10 million blitz in nine battleground states that hopes to put a dent in Democrat's Hillary Clinton's poll numbers.

Called "Two Americas: Economy," the advertisement portrays a grim economic outlook for a United States based on Clinton's plans with that of a thriving and rejuvenated America under Trump that would include tax relief and millions of new jobs created.

The ad campaign is the first major push by Trump, who only recently launched his first television ad, called "Two Americas: Immigration" and up to now has only spent about $5 million. In contrast, Clinton has been showing ads since June and has already spent about $80 million on them.

USA Today reports that in two of the states where the ad will air, Colorado and Virginia, the Clinton campaign has stopped showing ads because polls show she has built up a comfortable lead there. However, the Trump campaign says it believes the states are still winnable for the GOP.

"With Hillary Clinton dodging the media and off the campaign trail almost entirely this week, continuing to take many communities' votes for granted, we see this as the right time to show voters the benefits of an American economy under the leadership of Mr. Trump," Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement.

The "Two Americas" theme is the same one coined by Democratic candidate John Edwards in 2004 and also used in his 2008 campaign, NPR pointed out, although he meant it to show the gap between those doing well and those struggling to get ahead in the country and not to contrast the views of different candidates.
