President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign apparatus released an advertisement on Monday celebrating his first 100 days in office.
In a 30-second advertisement, a narrator touted Trump’s achievements during his first 100 days, including nominating Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and rolling back environmental regulations.
“Donald Trump, sworn in as president 100 days ago: America has rarely seen such success,” the ad said. “A respected Supreme Court justice: Confirmed. Companies investing in American jobs again. America becoming more energy independent.”
The ad took a characteristic swing at the media, alluding to press reports that noted that the new president has been unable to pass and sign major legislation in his first 100 days in office.
“You wouldn’t know it from watching the news — America is winning again and President Trump is making America great again,” a voice-over said.
Though the Commerce Department’s first quarter report showed sluggish economic growth last month, Trump’s ad also focused heavily on jobs created during his tenure, showing workers building a pipeline, assembling a truck, and laying down cable.
According to a campaign press release, the campaign spent $US1.5 million to air the ad “on television in major markets throughout the United States as well as target specific voting groups online.”
Trump has continued to hold campaign-style rallies in swing states — he counter-programmed the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday by holding his own rally in Pennsylvania.
Trump’s presidential campaign committee has also continued to fundraise heavily in the first months of his presidency.
According to Federal Election Committee disclosures last month, in the first three months of his presidency, Donald J. Trump for President Inc. raised over $US7 million for reelection, while a joint fundraising committee between Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee raised over $US9 million.
