Gloves Are Off:  DNC Ads Go After Trump's Campaign Lies

It's not going to be hard for the Democratic Party to find big lies Donald Trump told on the 2016 campaign trail. The problem will be which ones (of the hundreds of fake promises he made) to choose. NBC:

A team of several dozen staffers have compiled an archive of thousands of documents obtained through local news and Freedom of Information Act requests that will be used to spotlight promises Trump made during visits to specific communities — and to “put a human face” on what’s happened since then.

Those include promises made to welders and pipefitters in Virginia Beach and Newtown, Pennsylvania, construction workers around Tampa, Florida and seniors struggling with high drug prices in Reno, Nevada. The DNC did not provide estimates on how much money they planned to spend on an effort that is planned to continue through the 2020 election.

While Democratic presidential candidates compete for the nomination, the DNC will bypass traditional primary states like Iowa to get a head start in targeting voters in battleground states Clinton lost, including Florida, Arizona, Michigan and Georgia.

This ad looks incredibly powerful:

I also hope they run a national ad on healthcare, perhaps using this video?
