Washington, DC — After repeated warnings by scientists, medical professionals, and intelligence officials, Donald Trump still chose to downplay the coronavirus, stifle the government’s response to the virus, and let the effects of the virus get worse. Even after over 120,000 Americans have died and cases are still rising at alarming rates, Donald Trump is making the situation worse by holding dangerous self-serving rallies and cutting funding for testing while continuing to falsely claim that the coronavirus will just “go away.” Priorities USA Action is launching new digital and TV ads holding Trump accountable for his failure to protect American lives during the coronavirus crisis.
“Transmit” holds Trump accountable for his failure to protect Americans from the coronavirus crisis, even after 6 months of repeated warnings by medical experts, scientists, and members of his own administration. While cases surge again, Donald Trump is holding campaign rallies and bragging about cutting testing, all to feed his own ego at the expense of the health of the American people. “Transmit” will run on TV in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arizona.
Priorities USA Action’s latest digital ad, “Go Away,” uses Donald Trump’s own words to highlight that his lies are not “gaffes” but an alarming pattern that have cost American lives and jobs. “Go Away” is running on digital platforms in key battleground states.
Priorities USA Action has invested over $22 million alone to hold Trump accountable for his disastrous coronavirus response as part of an over $2 million per week effort to tell the truth about Donald Trump’s failed leadership on TV and digital platforms. Priorities has committed to spending over $200 million through the end of the year to defeat Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump isn’t just failing to stop the spread of the coronavirus, he’s actively making the pandemic worse. Trump is putting his political ambitions and the interests of his corporate friends before the health and safety of the American people,” said Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA. “Americans deserve a president who will be honest with them and put them first. Joe Biden has committed to leading with science and always telling Americans the truth. It is clear that the American people desperately need Joe Biden in the White House.”
