How To Listen To Donald Trump's Radio Ads If You're Dying To Hear Him Talk More
After months of an ad-less presidential campaign, Donald Trump released two radio spots, one of which aired on MSNBC's Morning Joe Thursday morning. The $300,000s worth of air time he bought will be broadcast in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. So unless you live in one of those three states, you won't hear the Trump 2016 ads blaring from your radio any time soon. Luckily, there is another way to listen to the ads, though they don't say anything we haven't already heard from the Republican candidate.
For those interested in everything Trump, his two radio ads are here on his campaign website for everyone's listening pleasure. You can even download the audio files, so you can listen to them over and over again, play them for all your friends, and post them on Facebook.
One ad features Trump's voice, while the other has a female narrator. The woman voicing the second ad says: "Donald Trump learned the values of hard work, determination, and faith at an early age. He went on to build one of the world's most iconic brands and companies, which employs thousands of people. Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action."
The ad narrated by Trump himself was geared specifically toward Iowa voters. It has a similar message to the first. Both focus heavily on illegal immigration, and in true Trump fashion, position him as the greatest thing that could ever happen to America. The second ad says: "The fact is, I'm going to make the greatest trade deals we've ever made in our country. Obamacare is a total disaster. It will be repealed and replaced with something much better."
Trump also made a promise that seems impossible for a president to deliver on:
If the people of Iowa vote for me, you'll never be disappointed. I don't disappoint people. I produce. Together we're going to make America great again.
Trump told NBC's Today on Thursday that the decision to start advertising his campaign isn't an attempt to increase his poll numbers after a few recent slips. "It's time for me to start advertising a little bit," he said. He also used the opportunity to put down his opponents, saying that other Republicans have been spending money on ads for months to no avail. "I've had heat because I haven't spent any money. It would be nice if the country could do that. I've spent no money and I'm number one. Other people have spent tens of millions of dollars, and they're floundering and doing poorly."
