Democratic group defies Trump, ramps up ad blasting coronavirus response [View all]

BIG STORY 12 MARCH 26, 2020 / 2:58 PM / UPDATED 15 MINUTES AGO

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic super PAC Priorities USA said on Thursday it planned to expand its use of an advertisement critical of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic despite the Trump re-election campaign’s efforts to stop it.

Trump’s campaign on Wednesday said it had sent cease-and-desist letters to local television stations that were running the ad in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - all expected to be swing states critical in November’s presidential election - because of what it considers a false assertion that Trump referred to the virus as a hoax.

It threatened litigation if stations refused to pull the ad.

The ad plays verbatim quotes from the president, including “We have it totally under control,” and “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear” as a graph shows the rising number of U.S. infection cases. In the opening, the ad includes his quote that “this is their new hoax.”
