Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton released their final ads of the presidential campaign, both releasing 2 minute final arguments making their case to the American people.
The ads will reportedly be aired on the Monday evening Primetime shows on CBS and NBC. Clinton’s ad, titled ‘Tomorrow,’ is a single shot of Clinton seated at a table speaking directly to the American people against the backdrop of light music. “It’s not just my name and my opponent’s name on the ballot, it’s the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren,” Clinton says.
She also repeats what she has been saying through much of the general election “I want to be the president for all Americans.” Clinton has increasingly sought to spread a message of unity by vowing that she wants to be president for all those who support her and all those who will be voting against her.
She closes the ad by saying “Tonight I’m asking for your vote. And tomorrow, let’s make history together,” notably never mentioning Trump by name throughout the ad.
Trump has had his spot out since November 4 when Clinton released her one minute ad based on Katy Perry’s ‘Roar.’
The GOP nominee’s ad has already received 5 million views on YouTube. Camp Trump also said in a press release that the ad has a $4 million dollar ad buy behind it. They plan to air it in nine key states: Florida, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina and New Mexico.
“This is Mr. Trump’s positive closing message to American voters, and it comes at a time when Secretary Clinton has abandoned any positive message of her own,” said Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications advisor, in the statement. “We believe voters are3 looking to go in a new direction and Mr. Trump is ready to lead this change.”
