President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has released a new TV commercial celebrating the highlights of his time in office.
The 30-second ad, titled, “First 100 Days,” touts the Trump’s purported successes and sharply criticizes the American mainstream media.
“America has rarely seen such success,” the narrator boasts before listing some of Trump’s moves during his first 100 days in office.
“A respected Supreme Court justice: confirmed,” the ad says while showing a clip of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as he takes his oath to uphold the high office.
“Companies investing in American jobs again, America becoming more energy independent,” the narrator continues as the ad names the Keystone Pipeline on screen as an example.
“Regulations that kill American jobs? Eliminated,” the ad says before purporting Trump also proposed the “biggest tax cut plan in history.”
Trump’s ad also seized the opportunity to lambaste the media for being unfair, something Trump has consistently criticized the media for doing.
“You wouldn’t know it from watching the news,” the ad says while displaying “FAKE NEWS” in large red letters across the top of American media news anchors.
“America is winning, and President Trump is making America great again,” it concludes.
To mark his first 100 days in office, Trump taunted the media at a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, while the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner went on without his presence.
“A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” Trump told his supporters.
On Friday, Trump addressed the nation with the declaration that his first 100 days had been the most successful in history.
“My fellow Americans, I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history,” Trump said. “Our country is going up, and it’s going up fast.”
Though most American presidents have historically rolled their campaign organizations into political action committees after taking office, the Federal Election Committee allows presidents who are eligible to run for re-election to keep campaign committees up and running.
The Trump campaign also explains the ongoing work on its website. “This Campaign will be a voice for all Americans, in every city near and far, who support a more prosperous, safe and strong America,” it says. “That’s why our Campaign cannot stop now – our Movement is just getting started.”
