President Donald Trump's re-election campaign announced Thursday that it would air two 30-second ads during Sunday's Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.
In a press release, according to Axios, the president's campaign offered a preview of one of the commercials, with the other debuting during the big game. A Trump spokesperson said this is the first time that a presidential campaign has purchased a national Super Bowl ad.
The first ad, titled "Stronger, Safer, More Prosperous," has been made public and focuses on Trump's economic record as president.
"America demanded change," a narrator says in the opening seconds over a silhouette of Trump walking past an American flag. "And change is what we got."
"Under President Trump, America is stronger, safer, and more prosperous than ever before," the narrator adds, while news clips tout economic statistics:
- "Best Wage Growth in a Decade"
- "Unemployment at 49 Year Low"
- "Unemployment for African Americans fell to a new low"
- "Unemployment for Hispanics hit a new all-time record low"
The ad concludes with Trump declaring, "And ladies and gentlemen, the best is yet to come," as six fighter jets fly over what appears to be a military academy graduation ceremony, with cadets tossing their caps in the air.
Each ad is said to cost $5.25 million, for a total of $10.5 million. The two 30-second slots were purchased in December and will air on Fox during the game.
