DNC RELEASES NEW TELEVISION AD: ‘Descent’
June 16, 2020
Today, on the five-year anniversary of Trump’s campaign launch, the DNC War Room released a one-minute television and digital ad entitled “Descent.” Trump’s descent down the escalator in Trump Tower, five years ago today, has become a metaphor for his presidency. Ever since, he’s tried to take the country down with him.
“The very first words of Trump’s campaign launch were a lie. Shortly after, he made an array of promises he never followed through on or intended to keep. The entirety of his presidency, he’s been dividing our country, letting down workers, rewarding the rich, and caving to China. He pledged to fix our problems, but instead he took us backward,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “Five years after his campaign launch, it’s clear that Trump’s presidency has been a complete failure. By almost any measure, America is worse off because of him.”
