A day after President Trump urged Americans to "come together with love for our nation" in the wake of deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Virginia, the White House released a (very early) re-election ad that labeled Democrats and journalists "enemies" and accused them of obstructing his political agenda.
The ad, dubbed "Let President Trump do his job", begins by attacking congressional Democrats, the media and "career politicians" for "standing in the way of success". Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, Don Lemon, Erin Burnett, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes and more show up there. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) and Senate Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (Md.).
The narrator cites employment and stock market data and touts "the strongest military in decades" as proof of Trump's alleged success.
The spot's underlying message is that all those forces are martialed against a President simply trying to do his job, and succeeding despite the best efforts of those "enemies" to prevent him from doing so.
