Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign released a new television ad that hits his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, hard on every bad deal she's ever made.
In a statement announcing the ad buy, which will run in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—battleground states with economies "greatly damaged" by Clinton's "support for bad trade deals"—the Trump camp said the U.S. has suffered "devastating economic losses" as a result of the "terrible leadership of the Clintons and President Obama."
"Recent emails released by WikiLeaks confirm Hillary Clinton's horrific record of support for bad trade deals," the statement read. "She called the job-killing Trans Pacific Partnership the 'gold standard,' has been a staunch advocate for NAFTA, shipped millions of manufacturing jobs to China, and if elected president, Hillary will destroy our middle class, all in the name of her misguided political ambitions."
Trump's senior political adviser, Peter Navarro, also weighed in on the failings of President Bill and Hillary Clinton, particularly on the issue of trade deals.
"The Clintons have influenced every bad trade deal over the past 20-plus years," he said. "From NAFTA to TPP to shipping our jobs offshore to China, this is the economic disaster of our time.
"It's a politician-made disaster with the names of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama all over it. We can't afford any more of Hillary Clinton's 'leadership' on this issue.
"Donald Trump on the other hand has a plan to cut taxes, reduce regulations, crack down on the trade cheaters and renegotiate every bad Clinton trade deal in order to put American workers first."
