Priorities USA Action Releases New Digital Ad Contrasting Joe Biden’s Strong Leadership with Donald Trump’s Failure During a National Crisis

June 18, 2020

Priorities USA Action is releasing a new digital ad, “Do The Work,” highlighting the sharp leadership contrast between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Donald Trump has chosen to ignore his responsibilities, incite hate, and surrender to the pandemic while thousands of Americans are dying and millions more are out of work. Joe Biden has demonstrated his competent, compassionate leadership and his preparedness to respond to our nation’s crises with action and unity.

Do The Work” showcases Joe Biden’s latest address to the nation, which draws a sharp contrast between Biden’s steady leadership and Donald Trump’s unwillingness to take responsibility for his failures that have made the challenges our country faces exponentially worse. 

Nearly 120,000 Americans have lost their lives, tens of millions have lost their jobs, and cases of coronavirus are still rising in at least 20 states. Instead of taking bold, decisive action, Donald Trump has given up on fighting the coronavirus and is instead focusing on feeding his ego and putting thousands more Americans at risk by holding campaign rallies. Joe Biden has already put out a plan to fight the coronavirus, safely reopen businesses, and ensure that Americans have access to the health care they need both during and after the pandemic. 

Priorities USA Action has invested over $2 million per week in advertising in key battleground states. This is part of Priorities’ commitment to spend over $200 million through the end of the year to defeat Donald Trump and ensure that Joe Biden is the next President of the United States. 

“Donald Trump made the coronavirus pandemic worse by failing to prepare and refusing to listen to experts, and now his strategy is to just stick his head in the sand and pretend it’s gone. He has quit on America. Trump’s trafficking in division, hatred, and chaos while Americans are hurting is appalling but not surprising,” said Patrick McHugh, Executive Director of Priorities USA. “Now more than ever, we need a leader who will take responsibility and put in the work for the American people. Joe Biden has a proven record of leading with honesty and compassion, and he will always put the American people first.”
