A day after winning four out of five critical states in Tuesday’s Republican primaries, Donald Trump released a new campaign video featuring Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The new ad includes footage of Clinton barking like a dog and suggests that she is unfit for the role of commander in chief.
The clip, posted on Trump's official Instagram account, does not begin with Clinton but with Russian President Vladimir Putin engaged in martial arts. Also featured in the ad is a man who seems to be an Islamic State fighter pointing a gun at the camera.
"When it comes to facing our toughest opponents," the ad says, "The Democrats have the perfect answer—”
The video then cuts to footage of Clinton at a campaign stop in Nevada earlier this year. In the clip, the Democratic front-runner barks, mimicking an ad she'd been describing to supporters.
It concludes with footage of Putin laughing and the words "We don't need to be a punchline!"

A few hours later, Clinton tweeted a video of herself talking to supporters and criticizing Trump's stance on issues like torture and immigration.
We’re not going to succeed by dividing this country between “us” and “them.” We’re in this together.https://t.co/6NX9V0ChFF— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 16, 2016
"We should be breaking down barriers, not building walls," she says. "We’re not going to succeed by dividing this country between 'us' and 'them.'"
