President Trump’s re-election team released a 30-second ad on Thursday that will air on Super Bowl Sunday, which touts the ways Americans are prospering under the Trump administration.
“America demanded change and change is what we got,” the narrator says in the commercial. “Under President Trump, America is stronger, safer and more prosperous than ever before.”
News segments discussing wage growth and low unemployment rates, particularly among African Americans and Hispanics, are discussed in the ad, with a clip of President Trump at the end telling a crowd that “the best is yet to come.”

“President Trump made the unprecedented decision to keep the campaign open following his first election, which allows us to do things like buying a Super Bowl ad,” Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, told The New York Times earlier this month. “We got in early, which gave us prime ad position early in the game.”
According to Murtaugh, the ad is one of two that will air during the big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

The campaign reportedly spent more than $10 million on the two ads.
