Club for Growth Action Launches TV Ads Exposing Trump in Iowa

“Club for Growth Action is committed to exposing Donald Trump for the liberal he is on economic policy.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth Action, a political arm of the Club for Growth, today announced the release of two 30-second television ads that will air on broadcast, cable, and satellite television in Iowa, and on digital platforms. The total ad buy exceeds $1 million.

 

“Donald Trump is the worst Republican candidate on economic issues,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “It’s astonishing that he’s even running as a Republican. Trump is the most liberal candidate on fiscal policy in the whole field, with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders. His angry style may reflect the deep frustration Americans have with Washington leaders who have failed to keep their promises. But the policies he’d implement would benefit himself and his own interests, not the American people. That makes him the worst kind of politician.

 

“Club for Growth Action is committed to exposing Trump for the liberal he is on taxes, trade, health care, and eminent domain. These ads let Trump speak for himself, about his Democrat core and his full support for giving government the power to take private property and give it to corporations.”
