President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign chose the final game of the World Series to broadcast a new advertisement hailing the candidate as “no Mr. Nice Guy.”
“He’s no Mr. Nice Guy, but sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington,” the commercial’s narrator says. The ad goes on to claim that the Trump administration created 6 million new jobs, cut illegal immigration in half, and touts the killing of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Democrats, the ad says, “would rather focus on impeachment and phony investigations.” Trump’s campaign manager tweeted: “Game 7 World Series ad, 1 year out. #WeAreComing and fighting for the forgotten Americans.”
The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros were playing the last game of the series in Houston. Trump was booed when he attended the fifth game in Washington on Sunday night.
