Trump Has Brilliant Plan To Crash Dem Debates with Illegal Immigrant Health Care Ad

Combined Shape

Conservative viewers looking for a reason to tune in to the second round of the Democratic presidential primary debates might have just gotten one, compliments of President Donald Trump.

And it’s not the kind of reason the Democratic National Committee wants to talk about.

According to The Hill, Trump’s campaign plans to air an advertisement during the Democratic debates Tuesday and Wednesday that’s aimed at highlighting just how far to the left the party is running heading into the 2020 election.

Using footage from last month’s debates in Miami, it makes the point perfectly:

The pivotal scene comes from the second night of the first round of debates, when candidates on the stage were asked if they supported giving taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens.

To a man — and woman — the candidates raised their hands to say yes.

“They’re all the same,” the ad’s narrator intones.

The Democrats running for president might present a clown car of different faces and bodies, but in their beliefs when it comes to handling the immigration crisis, they are all the same.

And when it comes to having taxpayers foot the bill for the health care needs of every Central and South American who can make it across the southern border — with families or alleged families in tow — those beliefs are at odds with those of the majority of American voters.

A CNN poll released July 1 showed a substantial 59 percent of those polled were against government-provided health insurance for “undocumented immigrants living in the United States.”

(It was 59 percent with the euphemism “undocumented immigrants.” If CNN had asked about “illegal aliens,” it likely would have been even higher.)

Judging by the reaction on social media, the Trump ad is already a hit.

The mainstream media might do its best to pump up the Democrats, but this Trump ad is going to put a critical issue foursquare in front of the voters – and at a time when millions are going to be watching.

If you needed a reason to be one of them, Trump’s ad just might be it.
