On Wednesday, the Trump campaign sent letters to TV stations threatening their licenses if they continued to air the Priorities USA Action ad “Exponential Threat,” which holds Donald Trump accountable using his own words downplaying the threat of the coronavirus while the infection rates skyrocketed across the country.
That intimidation effort failed. The ad is continuing to air across Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and yesterday Priorities USA Action expanded into Arizona with a $600,000 buy beginning this week.
Today, Priorities USA Action is launching the ad digitally in Spanish, to reach Latino communities in Florida.
“The Trump campaign is doing all they can to prevent us from hearing Trump’s own words as he downplayed and mismanaged this crisis, leaving us all at risk. But Latino communities will not fall for his lies,” said Daniela Martins, Hispanic Media Director of Priorities USA. “We will not be intimidated, and we will continue our work to ensure that Latinos know the truth, and can hold this president accountable for the risk he has left us in.”
