Trump campaign touts achievements despite criticism from 'enemies'

President Donald Trump listens as Treasury Secretary Steven

Donald Trump's campaign for his 2020 re-election has released a new ad attacking Democrats, the media and "career politicians" just one day after the president refused to denounce white supremacism.

The ad, a 30-second spot that seemed squarely aimed at Trump's shrinking base, shows Democrats like Senators Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren, followed by an array of media figures, as a narrator intones: "Democrats obstructing".

Notably absent are photos of any Republicans, who Trump has not shied away from criticizing in recent weeks for failing to repeal Obamacare. "But President Trump's plan is working", the narrator says.

"White House Senior Policy Advisor, Stephen Miller, defended President Trump's new immigration bill using facts and reason - and the Fake News Media was furious", said the RNC, which has been in lockstep with the President in attacking the media for stories critical of the President's agenda.

Regional Leaders Denounce Trump's Military Threat to Venezuela
President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he would not rule out the possibility of a military intervention in Venezuela. But Saturday, the bloc was condemning Trump's saber-rattling.

The ad includes a montage of television hosts, including Joe Scarborough, Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams of MSNBC, and Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon of CNN, among others.

"The president's enemies don't want him to succeed, but Americans are saying "let president Trump do his job", the advert added.

The narrator cites employment and stock market data and touts "the strongest military in decades" as proof of Trump's alleged success.
