Pro-Clinton Ad Suggests Trump Poses Nuclear War Risk

A new ad from the pro-Clinton PAC Priorities USA Action suggests that Donald Trump could ignite a nuclear war as president.

"I'm really good at war. I love war, in a certain way," Trump says in the spot amid images of soldiers carrying stretchers. "Including with nukes, yes — including with nukes," he also says, over an image of a rising mushroom cloud. "I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me."

Trump is also shown saying, "nuclear is just, the power, the devastation is very important to me," and "I want to be unpredictable."

This new ad shows the Clinton camp is once again looking back to former Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson's 1964 campaign ads against Republican Barry Goldwater. Johnson's "Daisy" ad, at the height of the Cold War, terrified voters and was quickly taken off the air with its devastating images of nuclear conflagration. Clinton previously copied Johnson's "Confessions of a Republican" ad and his spot quoting a Ku Klux Klan member voicing support for Goldwater.

Almost 90 retired generals, admirals and other military officials released an open letter of support for Trump in The New York Times on Tuesday.

They believe there is a "long overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy" that "can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world. For this reason, we support Donald Trump's candidacy to be our next commander in chief."

The Priorities USA ad will run widely in Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Iowa, North Carolina and Nevada, according to The Hill. The single-candidate super political action committee is backed by financier George Soros, who contributed $6 million to it in November following a $1 million contribution in June 2015, according to the Center for Responsive Politics
