"New Donald Trump ad against Hillary Clinton deplorables"|"dangerous", "Hillary Clinton health"
A new television ad from the Donald Trump campaign shows clips of Hillary Clinton coughing and falling as she was leaving a 9/11 memorial ceremony, charging that the Democratic nominee lacks the "fortitude" and "stamina" to be president.
The 30-second spot titled "dangerous" begins with an announcer saying, "Our next president faces daunting challenges in a dangerous world." The narrator then lists foreign threats to the United States, like the Islamic State and North Korea.
The ad then pivots to Clinton, showing pictures and clips of her coughing, being helped up stairs, and of her falling as she tries to get in a van after falling ill at a 9/11 ceremony in New York.
"Hillary Clinton failed every single time as Secretary of State. Now she wants to be President," the narrator says as the clips play. "Hillary Clinton doesn’t have the fortitude, strength or stamina to lead in our world."
The Trump campaign told USA Today that the ad will air throughout the U.S., with a focus on battleground states. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to questions from TPM about where the ad is running or how much is being spent to air it.
