WASHINGTON — The Democratic National Committee is beginning its general election offensive against President Donald Trump Tuesday, with a new television and digital ad campaign running in battleground states.

The effort marks the five year anniversary of Trump’s 2016 presidential candidacy, which he announced after a ride down a golden escalator at Trump Tower. The opening DNC ad, titled “Descent,” revives that image, tying it to the decline of American jobs, health care, race relations, and immigrant rights.

“Five years ago — Donald Trump descended to the basement of Trump Tower. And for the last five years, he’s brought America down with him,” says the ad provided to NBC News.

The ad campaign will run for five weeks, and will focus on holding Trump accountable “for four years of failures driven by his own ego and self-interest and defined by his incompetence as a leader,” according to a memo shared with NBC News. The committee declined to provide a specific price tag but said it would be a “six figure television buy.”

Editing a few hours later to link to a tweet from the DNC War Room with the ad. Still no YouTube link.

2. Slightly discordant to the COVID message to have all the clips of crowds supporting Biden...

3. Don't think so. People will know those clips were from before the pandemic.

10. I had the same reaction - for a different reason.

It wasn't until the third time watching that I realized the first Biden crowd was cheering for Biden and not one of the angry Trump mobs.

The third time through, when I was trying to figure out why that part of the clip struck me as "off," I was able to see the back half of a few Biden signs and recognize that was a pro-Biden part of the video, rather than the tail end of the dump on Trump portion.

That transition just feels off to me.
