A pro-Trump TV ad urging viewers to call a toll-free number and "pledge your support to defend Donald Trump" against "liberals in the Democratic Party" and the "crooked media" — is the work of a group that "employs a one-time Trump hater," Time magazine reports.

The commercial, sponsored by the "Committee to Defend the President," a "project of Stop Hillary PAC" and "not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee."

Guy Short, a Stop Hillary PAC consultant, served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention and last April told Reuters Trump is a "liar." 

He added that he had "spent thousands of dollars of my own money campaigning to become a delegate because it's that important to make sure Donald Trump is NOT our nominee."

Dave Levinthal of Center for Public Integrity, who wrote the Time article, says:

"What some lay viewers may interpret as a straightforward call to arms from Trump himself is really a fundraising effort for an unaffiliated political group that's in part operated by a man who's openly questioned Trump's fitness for the presidency."

He also says Short is "is making a pretty penny."
