Donald Trump Will Air Attack Ad During Second Round of Democratic Debates

Donald Trump won’t be on stage for the two nights of the Democratic presidential debate in Detroit, but he’s not missing the opportunity to take shots at the candidates.

The president’s re-election campaign will air a 30-second attack ad on Tuesday and Wednesday that opens with 10 Democrats, including Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, raising their hands when asked if their health care plans would cover undocumented immigrants. The question was asked during the first debate in Miami on June 27.

The ad also criticizes Democratic candidates for supporting “socialized medicine” that would eliminate private insurance. It ends with the line, “They’re all the same.”

The 30-second spot will air on MSNBC and Fox News Channel and CNN, the network that is sponsoring the debate.
