NEW YORK, NY- While the rest of the country awaits an official nominee of both the Republican and Democratic primaries, democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton steams ahead with plans to take aim at Republican front runner, Donald Trump.
A new political ad, released by Clinton’s camp, Wednesday features images unique to the Big Apple, including Lady Liberty and a diverse group New Yorkers.
In keeping with the mudslinging that’s frequently associated with politics, the ad also features footage from a Trump rally where a black male is attacked by rally attendees.
According to CNN, Trump publicly addressed the ad during a stop in Wisconsin, Wednesday, saying quote…
“It’s a New York City ad, talking about New York. Except for one problem — she used a sign that’s on Pennsylvania Avenue,” Trump said, before joking that if he doesn’t win the election, he’ll live on the avenue — on which the White House stands — “no matter what happens.”
A spokesperson for Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders also weighed in.
“Obviously the Clinton campaign understands the momentum that Senator Sanders has and that’s forcing them to fight for a state they’d have thought they’d have wrapped up by now,” a senior adviser to Sanders told CNN.
