‘Donald Trump got it done’: Donald Trump’s Super Bowl ad highlights criminal-justice reform.
Donald Trump’s reelection campaign aired a surprise TV ad on criminal-justice reform during the Super Bowl Sunday night featuring the president’s grant of clemency for former inmate Alice Johnson.
Donald Trump campaign manager contrasted the president’s leadership on criminal justice reform with NFL players who previously knelt during the Star-Spangled Banner to protest injustices in the legal system.
“President Trump strongly disagreed with how some in the NFL chose to disrespect our flag, our country, and the people who serve it, just to express their views of the criminal justice system,” the campaign manager said. “The Super Bowl is the perfect place to debut this ad, because it clearly communicates how President Trump expressed his concerns about the issue – he acted and he helped improve people’s lives.”
The 30-second spot in black and white showed Mrs. Johnson, a grandmother who is African-American, expressing jubilation and gratitude to Donald Trump upon her release from prison after serving 21 years for a first-time drug offense.
I promised to restore hope in America. That includes the least among us. Together, let’s KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 2, 2020
