CNN is refusing to run a television ad by President Trump’s election committee touting his accomplishments over his first 100 days. It’s an unprecedented move that would have likely never happened during the Obama administration.
To counter the negative press narrative on his first 100 days as President, Donald Trump released a new television ad yesterday. It can be seen below. It lists his many accomplishments, including the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and large jobs gains.
CNN, however, refused to run the ad, likely because the ad slams the “fake news” put out by the media. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is shown, along with other media members, with the words “FAKE NEWS” plastered on the screen.
Here is the complete statement by the Donald J. Trump for President committee. It was posted on DonaldJTrump.com.
Today, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc was stopped by the mainstream media from running a new television ad on CNN. The new television ad entitled “First 100 Days” highlights the President’s first 100 days in office; exhibiting clear vision, resolute leadership, and an uncompromising dedication to the American people, just as he promised throughout his campaign.
The campaign is continuing President Trump’s approach of reaching out to the American people by directly highlighting his work over the first 100 days with this ad as well as fighting back against the continued media bias.
“It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with the country. It’s clear that CNN is trying to silence our voice and censor our free speech because it doesn’t fit their narrative,” said Michael Glassner, Executive Director.
CNN takes issue with the ad’s message calling out the mainstream media for peddling fake news and not reporting on the fact that President Trump is making America great again.
