Donald Trump's first television ad highlights some of the most provocative parts of his presidential campaign platform, including calls for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and a temporary ban on the entry of Muslims into the United States.
In the ad released Monday, the Trump campaign also criticizes President Obama and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton over "radical Islamic terrorism," and vows to "cut the head off" of the Islamic State and "take their oil."
"I am very proud of this ad," Trump said in a statement in which he noted he is leading many Republican polls. "I don't know if I need it, but I don't want to take any chances because if I win we are going to Make America Great Again."
The Trump campaign said the ad will begin airing Tuesday in the early campaign states of Iowa and New Hampshire. In a statement, the campaign added that the New York businessman will be spending "at least $2 million dollars per week, with $1.1 million allocated to TV in Iowa and close to $1 million spent on TV in New Hampshire."
The Trump campaign has run radio ads in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina and said it would continue to do so. One new radio spot, the campaign said, features Kathryn Gates-Skipper, the first female Marine to serve in combat operations, who endorsed Trump at a November rally in Florida
Another new radio ad running in South Carolina features Nancy Mace, the first female graduate of The Citadel.
