Trump campaign launches TV ad in New Mexico

Avatar

“You have reached the 911 police emergency line, due to defunding of the police department, we’re sorry, but no one is here to take your call,” says a voiceover in an empty police station during President Donald Trump’s new commercial in New Mexico.

The Trump reelection campaign is targeting New Mexico in an attempt to flip the state red again in November. New Mexico has voted blue in presidential elections since 2008.

Trump’s 30-second spot takes aim at the issue of defunding the police.

“If you’re calling to report a rape, please press one,” said the voice in Trump’s ad. “To report a murder, press two. To report a home invasion, press three.”

According to advertising reports the campaign has put $110,000 worth of airtime in the state from July 4 to July 10.

“Donald Trump is the law and order president while Joe Biden and his band of reckless anarchists’ call to ‘defund the police’ would make our communities less safe,” the Trump campaign said in response to the ad. “Trump Victory is committed to winning in New Mexico and we have invested in the state more than ever before. Our volunteers have contacted nearly one million voters while Joe Biden doesn’t even have New Mexico on his map.”

Trump lost New Mexico in 2016 by eight points but visited the state again in 2019 where he told the crowd he really thinks he can turn the state Republican again.

The New Mexico Democrat Party accused the Trump campaign of pouring corporate money into their state in an attempt to deceive voters.

“New Mexicans aren’t fooled by his ads, because we’ve seen the ways that his presidency has hurt our state and divided our communities. Democrats are looking forward to continuing to build on our momentum in 2020 by electing a president who truly represents our values and will help us create a New Mexico for all,” the party said in a statement.

Joe Biden’s campaign also responded to the new Trump ad.

“New Mexico families aren’t fooled by President Trump. They won’t forget Trump’s inability to lead our country during this pandemic, and this fall they will have the opportunity to make a change and send Joe Biden to the White House,” the Biden campaign said.

    Tells it like it is. We have two choices come November. We vote for someone who sincerely loves this country and it’s people, the other is a Socialist who wants his and their own agenda and that means the destruction of the America we know to be a freedom loving country. The New World Order is frothing at the mouth to come into power. This next election means whether America survives or not. Maranatha

    Democrats prefer to keep people under their thumb; they don’t believe in freedom and the more they can keep from you, the better they like it. Like other communist countries, the democrats will muzzle you, lie to you, continue to make laws that reduce your freedoms, and dismantle the US Constitution. Democrats are not what they were 40 years ago, they are communists in today’s world. Like the Bible says in Timothy: “Get out from among them.”
