Donald Trump's campaign is airing six new television ads — four of which slam Democrat Hillary Clinton — for the remaining weeks of the presidential race.

Only one spot, featuring a mother whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant, was announced by the campaign, CNN reported.

The others were found airing in battleground states and on national television stations by Kantar Media/CMAG, which tracks media advertising.

The ads fall in line with the Trump campaign's plan, announced in September, to air $100 million in spots during the last seven weeks leading up to Nov. 8, spokesman Jason Miller told CNN on Tuesday.

So far, Trump has booked $14 million for the spots for the remaining weeks of the campaign, according to the report.

The immigration spot features Laura Wilkerson of Pearland, Texas, near Houston, whose son, Joshua, 18, was tortured and killed by an illegal in 2013.

"The man who murdered Joshua is an illegal alien and he should not have been here," Wilkerson said, her voice shaking.

"The killer hit him on the head with a closet rod so hard that it broke in four pieces, and then he took him to a field and he doused him with gasoline and set him on fire.

"It was the hardest day of my life," she says.

"Hillary Clinton's border policy is going to allow people into the country just like the one that murdered my son."

The ad is airing in Florida, Iowa, Maine, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, the campaign said.

Another spot includes controversial remarks Clinton has made about African-American gang members and recent comments about supporters of both Trump and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"Super predators. Basement dwellers. Deplorables," a graphic reads. "What elitist arrogance."

Two other ads slam Clinton's Washington experience as a senator and secretary of state.

"She's been there 30 years," a narrator says in one of the spots. "Taxes went up. Terrorism spread. Jobs vanished.

"But special interests and Washington insiders thrived," the narrator says.

In the other, a voice can be heard saying: "Hillary failed as secretary of state, and now the world is unraveling."

The two remaining spots tout Trump's economic agenda.

"Donald Trump cares about the working man, because the working man has made him what he is," a hard-hat wearing worker says in an ad airing in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, according to CNN. "Donald Trump has given this whole area around here a glimpse of hope for our future."

In the last spot, Trump's proposals around taxes, healthcare, childcare and maternity leave are highlighted as benefiting middle-class Americans.

"It takes a builder to rebuild the American Dream," a narrator says, "and Donald Trump has the blueprint."
