Donald Trump’s First TV Ad Sparks Controversy
TIME – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released his first television ad of the campaign on Monday, a provocative 30-second spot that presents some of the businessman’s most controversial proposals.
An email about the ad from Trump’s campaign said it will air in Iowa and New Hampshire beginning on Tuesday. The candidate has been reluctant to air television ads, noting how far ahead he’s gotten without them, but has now promised to spend at least $2 million per week on ad buys. The email said the team has $1.1 million for television allocated in Iowa and close to $1 million spent in New Hampshire.
