Releases first TV ads

3 Jan, 2016

Trump releases his first TV ads. He says he will spend at least $2 million a week. The ads outline his policy proposals. He says he has six to eight ads in production and that his was a “major buy and it’s going to go on for months.” He said he hopes the spots impress upon undecided voters that the country has become “a dumping ground.”

We’ve got to get smart fast — or else we won’t have a country…I’m $35 million to $40 million under budget, and to be honest, I don’t think I need [ads] because I have such a big lead. But I don’t want to take any chances, and I almost feel guilty not spending money.

On the style of the ads:

You can say the same words, ‘Make America Great Again,’ and various themes around it, but it’s doesn’t sound the same as it is when I’m up there on stage in front of 15,000 people going wild.
