Trump campaign launches digital ad featuring Democratic governors praising the President's coronavirus response
(CNN)President Donald Trump's re-election campaign is launching a digital ad that features clips from several Democratic governors praising the President and his administration's response to the coronavirus crisis.
The ad comes as Trump and his allies continue to push back against criticism of his leadership ahead of and during the pandemic. Polls show Americans are increasingly concerned about the federal government's handling of the situation. A Pew Research poll revealed that 65% of respondents feel the President reacted too slowly to the crisis.
This new ad splices together statements from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. In the ad, each governor has something positive to say about Trump himself or the federal government.
Cuomo is featured lauding the work of Trump and his administration.
"His team is on it," Cuomo said. "I know a team when they are on it, and I know a team when they are not on it. His team is on it."
