(New York, NY) Real estate magnate and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump unveiled his first campaign ad, which will air in Iowa and New Hampshire starting on Tuesday, January 5th.  The Trump campaign says the candidate plans to spend at least $2 million dollars per week, with $1.1 million allocated to TV in Iowa and close to $1 million spent on TV in New Hampshire.

“I am leading in every poll by wide, double digit margins. We have tremendous crowds, incredible support from all over the country and I am $35 million dollars under budget. We have spent the least amount of money and have the best results and this is the kind of thinking the country needs. I am very proud of this ad, I don’t know if I need it, but I don’t want to take any chances because if I win we are going to Make America Great Again,” Trump said.

The ad focuses on Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States until “we can figure out what is going on” (over in Syria). The ad promises that Trump “will cut the head off of ISIS and take their oil.”

The ad also echoes Trump’s promise to halt illegal immigration by building a wall on the United States’ southern border while making Mexico pay for it.

The ad can be viewed here.
