The Trump campaign is calling on TV stations not to air a commercial produced by Priorities USA, a Democratic super PAC.
The ad simply plays false claims made by President Donald Trump during the coronavirus outbreak, and accurately shows how the body count increased during his many lies.
A lawyer for Donald J. Trump for President Inc, Alex Cannon, called the ad “false, misleading and deceptive” — even though the ad uses Trump’s own words — in a March 25 letter to TV stations.
Josh Schwerin, communications strategist for Priorities USA, tweeted a response:
The Trump campaign is trying to bully TV stations into taking our ad down. They are not going to be successful because it is literally Trump in his own words. Let’s make sure as many people as possible see this ad. https://t.co/XgPzHKld4m— Josh Schwerin (@JoshSchwerin) March 25, 2020
