Trump Releases First Radio Ads

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has largely steered clear of media ads, besides his own physical appearances on the various networks.

On Thursday, Trump’s first batch of radio ads aired throughout the United States.

The Hill reports:

“Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action. They will never make our country great again,” a female voice says in the first ad.

That ad mentions stopping illegal immigration, building a wall on the southern border and forcing Mexico to pay for it, pushing for trade deals, building a military so strong that “no country will ever mess with us” and saying Trump will “brutally and quickly cut the head off of ISIS.”

“It’s time to make America great again. Maybe greater than ever before,” the narrator says.

Trump reiterates many of the points in the second ad, which also mentions caring for veterans, saying, “My opponents have no experience in creating jobs or making deals”

The radio ads, which are significantly less expensive than TV spots, will air in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Many campaigns and their allied groups have spent millions securing ads in the early voting states, but Trump has touted his success so far getting free media attention for his campaign.

“Despite this great success, I am now going to start advertising,” Trump said in announcing his radio ad buys, which the campaign said are “valued at $300,000” and would go until the end of November.
