NEW DIGITAL CAMPAIGN: Trump’s ‘Nixonian’ Abuses of Power 

As the lines between Donald Trump and former President Richard Nixon get blurrier by the day, today American Bridge is releasing a new digital campaign that highlights the eerie similarities between the two using their own words. From firing investigators to secret “tapes” and attacking the press, the parallels between the two administrations are striking, rooted in corruption and attempts to obstruct justice.

“Trump’s firing of the FBI director who was investigating his campaign’s ties to Russia was a blatant attempt to obstruct justice,” said American Bridge spokesperson Sabrina Singh. “The President may think he’s above the law, just like Nixon did, but he’s not, and the country is going to hold him and his fellow Republicans accountable for standing in the way of a truly independent investigation of this scandal.”

NEW BRIDGE PROJECT DIGITAL CAMPAIGN: Trump’s Nixonian Abuses of Power

Following Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, a move that experts have called an unprecedented abuse of power and an obvious attempt to obstruct justice, Bridge Project is releasing a new digital ad highlighting the dangerous Nixonian ways of Donald Trump. The 60-second digital ad highlights how Trump may have created a constitutional crisis, even bigger than Watergate, driven by the fact that the White House under Trump is operating as if they are above the law. The campaign will run on  social media channels over the next week.
“Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey has created a constitutional crisis that is bigger than Watergate,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “This unprecedented abuse of power and attempt to obstruct justice only furthers the need for a truly independent investigation even clearer.

New Bridge Project Digital Campaign Exposes Dangers of Trumpcare, Holds Republicans Accountable for Reckless Attack on Americans

Bridge Project is launching a new digital ad campaign today to expose the dangers of Trumpcare and hold Republicans accountable for passing this reckless bill that would cost 26 million Americans their healthcare. The campaign launches as Congress heads home for a week-long recess and will target 24 congressional districts across the country.

To watch the new ad, “Let’s Hold Them Accountable,” click HERE.

“If Trumpcare becomes law it would destroy millions of lives.  It would effectively deny coverage to people who need it, burden families who are already having a hard time making ends meet, and hollow-out Medicaid, all just to cut taxes for the rich,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “This bill represents a disgusting attack on the health and well-being of the country, and Republicans will be held accountable for this reckless plan that could make getting sick a financial death sentence.”

As the ad notes, the disastrous consequences of this bill […]

Trump Texts: Day 100

American Bridge today released “Trump Texts: Day 100,” a series of digital ads that imagine an early-morning text exchange between Donald Trump and an adviser, as a delusional Trump reflects on his counterfactual “successes” bringing back jobs and uniting the country.

“100 days into Trump’s presidency, U.S. economic growth is at a three-year low. Trump doesn’t have a jobs plan, and he’s spent almost all of his time in office either promoting one of his businesses or plotting to strip millions of Americans of their health insurance,” said American Bridge spokesperson Brad Bainum. “It’s no wonder over half the country thinks President Donald Trump is a disaster — 100 days in, he’s already a failure of historic proportions.”

New ​Bridge Project Ad ​Takes On ​Trumpcare’s Latest Attack on Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions

As we close in on the 100th day of the Trump Administration, a new Bridge Project digital ad highlights Donald Trump’s latest cynical attempt to force Trumpcare through Congress – only this time with changes that would make it even more agonizing for American families.  Trumpcare would now give states a backdoor to roll back protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, which is an assault on every American’s access to health care and would decimate the finances of millions across the country. 

To watch Bridge Project’s new digital ad, “Trumpcare Guts Your Coverage,” click HERE.

“Donald Trump has used his first 100 days to turn his back on all of the people he spent the campaign promising to help. His self-serving agenda puts everyone else last, and Trumpcare’s tax-breaks for the very wealthy are a key example. But evidently it wasn’t devastating enough, as Republicans have now added a gigantic loophole that throws […]
