Priorities USA Action is releasing an updated version of “Cases” to reflect the worsening coronavirus crisis and hold Donald Trump accountable for his failure to keep Americans safe during a pandemic. The updated ad presents the facts about the Trump administration’s inability to contain the coronavirus — with 1,334,600 Americans falling ill in July.
As the number of cases continues to climb each day, Donald Trump deflects responsibility, minimizes the threat, and fails to provide the adequate national response that our country desperately needs to slow the spread. “Cases” is running on cable and broadcast in key battleground states. The Trump campaign is currently suing over a similar ad run by Priorities, “Exponential Threat,” which contrasts the rise in case numbers with Donald Trump’s lies about the virus.
Since March, Priorities USA Action has spent nearly $26 million holding Donald Trump accountable for his failure to protect American lives during the coronavirus crisis. Priorities is committed to investing more than $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.
“There’s no new tone, there’s no new Donald Trump, there’s just the Donald Trump who’s failing America and making this pandemic significantly worse,” said Chairman of Priorities USA Guy Cecil. “It is no accident that coronavirus cases are skyrocketing. Donald Trump’s deliberate attempt to downplay the threat, stymie basic mitigation efforts, and provide little support to frontline workers has made this crisis demonstrably worse. We need serious, effective leadership more than ever. I’m proud that Priorities is doing everything we can to make sure that Joe Biden is in the White House next year.”
