The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a brutal campaign ad on Tuesday attacking the political Left ahead of the 2018 midterms, highlighting their extreme rhetoric and actions.
The ad comes after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for the harassment of members of the Trump administration on Saturday. Various members of the Trump administration have already been targeted in recent days including White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“Voters have a clear choice in 2018, the Democrat Party is the party of obstruction and extreme rhetoric while the Republican Party is working to deliver a stronger economy for all Americans,” RNC spokesman Steve Guest told The Daily Wire.
The ad highlights multiple well-publicized instances of those on the political Left advocating for extreme action in response to the Trump administration, including Madonna saying she has thought about blowing up the White House, Snoop Dogg shooting the president in a music video, Bill Maher saying he hopes the economy crashes so it hurts Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saying she doesn’t know why there aren’t uprisings “all over the country,” and Waters’ extreme speech where she called for the harassment of Trump cabinet members.
In contrast with the political Left’s message, the RNC highlights the accomplishments of the Trump administration through the administration’s first 500 days in office.
In their “500 Days Of American Greatness” campaign ad, the RNC highlights the numerous promises made and kept by Trump, including a strong economy, low unemployment rate, tax cuts, the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, rebuilding the military, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, cutting of regulations, and multiple other promises made and kept.
