A new $3 million ad campaign in battleground states uses the violent liberal protests in cities across the country from this summer to argue that reelecting President Trump is the “only safe option” for families.
In the ad from Moms for Safe Neighborhoods, a new pro-Trump super PAC, a mother has a nightmare about rioters smashing her car and house windows—a familiar sight in many neighborhoods during this summer’s anti-police riots. “They’ll defund the police. They’ll disarm them,” the ad warns of electing Democrats this November. “Don’t let the nightmare come true.”
