President Trump’s re-election campaign is out with a new ad accusing Democrats of obstructing the president’s agenda in an attempt to “score political points with the radical Left.”
“Obamacare is failing, insurance premiums skyrocketing, working families suffer. All while Democrats in Washington, D.C., block a better plan to repeal and replace Obamacare once and for all, obstructing our president just to score political points with the radical Left,” the 30-second ad states. “President Trump will fix it. He wants what’s best for the American people — top quality healthcare you can afford. Tell Washington Democrats end the obstruction. Work with our president.”
The ad, released Tuesday, features several Democrats accused of obstructing the president’s political agenda, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
Also included in the spot is Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who feuded with Trump over a condolence call he made to Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four soldiers killed during an ambush in Niger earlier this month.
Wilson also went head-to-head with White House chief of staff John Kelly, who made an appearance at a White House press briefing this month to discuss the condolence calls Trump makes to the families of fallen service members.
Senate Republicans have attempted to pass legislation overhauling Obamacare, to no avail.Their most recent effort to pass a proposal from Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana collapsed after the bill failed to garner enough support from GOP senators.
