WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton has a new television ad that reiterates her message that opponent Donald Trump is a bad bet for the African-American voters he is trying to woo.
The spot opens with a news clip of the Republican presidential nominee saying at a rally, “What do you have to lose?” as he asks black voters to pick him. “You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs.”
The commercial then reminds viewers – as Clinton did in a speech Thursday in Reno, Nevada – that Trump’s real estate company was once charged with discriminating African Americans and breaking federal law.
The campaign says the 30-second spot is set to run on cable channels across Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Those are the same four states in which the Trump campaign aired its first general election ad.
