New Trump Ad Broadcast During World Series: Campaign Update

New Trump Ad Broadcast During World Series: Campaign Update(Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign chose the final game of the World Series to broadcast a new advertisement hailing the candidate as “no Mr. Nice Guy.”“He’s no Mr. Nice Guy, but sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington,” the commercial’s narrator says. The ad goes on to claim that the Trump administration created 6 million new jobs, cut illegal immigration in half, and touts the killing of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.Democrats, the ad says, “would rather focus on impeachment and phony investigations.” Trump’s campaign manager tweeted: “Game 7 World Series ad, 1 year out. WeAreComing and fighting for the forgotten Americans.”The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros were playing the last game of the series in Houston. Trump was booed when he attended the fifth game in Washington on Sunday night.Trump Campaign Condemns Twitter’s New Ad Policy (6:41 p.m.)Parscale said Twitter made “a very dumb decision” after the president’s favorite social media platform banned paid political advertising.“Twitter just walked away from hundreds of millions of dollars of potential revenue,” Parscale said in a statement, adding that the new policy was another attempt to silence conservatives, and that Trump “has the most sophisticated online program ever known.”Jack Dorsey, the company’s chief executive officer, announced Wednesday that the platform would ban all political ads starting on Nov. 22. The move comes after Democratic candidates criticized Facebook Inc. for its policy of not fact-checking posts and paid ads from politicians, allowing them to use the platform to spread false information.Twitter may not be losing out on as much money as Parscale thinks. In an earnings call last week, Twitter said political ads brought in less than $ 3 million during the 2018 midterm elections. By contrast, Trump’s campaign spent $ 5 million advertising on Facebook in the four weeks leading up to Oct. 19, according to data from Advertising Analytics.Biden’s Lead Over Warren Narrows in Poll (4:12 p.m.)Joe Biden’s lead over Elizabeth Warren has been cut in half in a national USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Wednesday.The survey showed Biden on top with 26% support among likely Democratic voters, followed by Warren at 17%, Bernie Sanders at 13% and Pete Buttigieg at 10%. All other candidates were in the single digits.Biden’s 9-point lead is down sharply from the 18-point advantage he had in the last USA Today/Suffolk poll, which was taken in late August, before the Trump-Ukraine scandal highlighted the work of Biden’s son Hunter.The telephone poll of 1,000 registered voters, of whom 399 were likely Democratic voters, nationwide was taken Oct. 23-26. It has a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points among Democratic respondents. — Ryan Teague BeckwithWarren Deflects Question on Medicare for All (2:04 p.m.)A voter said she came to an Elizabeth Warren campaign event in New Hampshire in search of specifics on how she will pay for her government-funded health care plan. The voter left empty-handed.At a town hall at the University of New Hampshire on Wednesday, Warren once again didn’t provide specifics, but reiterated that she’s working on determining the total cost of her plan and where the money will come from.Warren adopted Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All plan and has promised she’ll explain how to pay its $ 30 trillion cost.“We know that Medicare for All is the least expensive way to get everyone covered, so for me that means I’m in,” Warren said, pledging that “the numbers will be out there” to back up her claim that costs for middle class people will drop.Democratic rivals have criticized Warren for not providing the details. — Misyrlena EgkolfopoulouBiden Hits Trump for Not Celebrating Pet Days (11:22 a.m.)Joe Biden took a dig at President Donald Trump on Instagram for not being an animal lover. But the timing was a little awkward.Biden posted a photo of himself with a German shepherd, one day after the president tweeted a photo of the shepherd that played a prominent role in the raid last weekend that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.“Some Americans celebrate NationalCatDay, some celebrate Nationalization — President Trump celebrates neither. It says a lot,” Biden’s post says.Trump on Monday posted a picture of the German shepherd who assisted in al-Baghdadi raid, praising the dog’s work on Twitter.Trump is the first president since William McKinley, who took office in 1897, to not have a White House pet. At a February rally in El Paso, Texas, Trump said owning a dog while in office would be “phony.”“How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?” Trump said. “Feels a little phony to me.” — Emma KineryCOMING UPFourteen presidential candidates, including Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg are scheduled to speak on Friday at the Liberty and Justice Celebration hosted by the Iowa Democratic Party in Des Moines.\–With assistance from Emma Kinery, Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou, Ryan Teague Beckwith and Bill Allison.To contact the reporter on this story: Chelsea Mes in Sydney at cmes@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Max Berley, John HarneyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
