The Trump campaign has launched new advertising in five key states, after a break during the Democrat and Republican conventions, with a focus in three of the states on Democrat nominee Joe Biden being a "tool of the radical left" and in two other states on President Donald Trump's "law and order" message.
The spots are going up in the early-voting states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, reports Fox News. The Biden "left" ads are in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, and the ads on law and order will be in Minnesota and Wisconsin, which have been rocked by rioting following the police-connected death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha.
Meanwhile, Biden's campaign has launched a new television advertisement in Wisconsin including images from riots in Kenosha that blames the president for the unrest.
According to a senior Trump campaign official, the campaign paused ads in battleground states during both conventions because it did not see any sense in spending "buckets of donor money" when they felt they got free advertising from the convention programming. However, it kept its national spots running.
The Wisconsin ad, focusing on the unrest in Kenosha, states that "Biden and the radical left’s weak response has led to chaos and violence." It also slams Democrats for "their calls for defunding the police" and says that would make matters worse, but Trump has protected Wisconsin families by sending in the National Guard and law enforcement. A similar ad will be running in Minnesota.
"Joe Biden is too weak and can’t call out the radical leftist rioters for what they are because he is under the control of the anti-police extremists in the Democrat Party," Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News.
However, Biden has often condemned the violence rocking America's cities, including during his speech in Pittsburgh on Monday, where he accused Trump of fomenting rioting and unrest.
