Watch: Pro-Biden Super PAC’s Powerful New Ad Blasts Trump’s Coronavirus Response

A super PAC supporting former Vice President Joe Biden has released a new ad strongly criticizing President Donald Trump’s response to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Unite the Country’s 30 second ad accuses the President of failing in a time of crisis.

The ad is entitled ‘Crisis Comes’ and features footage of former presidents George H.W. Bush, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan as well as Vice President Biden in the White House Situation Room. It then contrasts them with Trump’s recent actions.

“Crisis comes to every presidency,” the super PAC said. “We don’t blame them for that. What matters is how they handle it. On that measure, President Trump has failed us. It’s time for him to go.”

The ad points out that Trump initially called the Coronavirus a ‘hoax’ and blames him for the virus’ spread across the country, while being careful not to blame Trump for the disease itself or focus on China. It is also not an endorsement of Biden as such, never mentioning him by name.

“Crisis comes to every president — this one failed,” the ad says.

Unite the Country has reportedly made a seven figure ad buy and the short commercial is already winning praise and gaining traction online.
