Hillary Clinton is airing a new TV ad in Florida and other battleground states that features clips of Donald Trump making derogatory comments about women’s appearances while girls and young women look at themselves in the mirror.
“Is this the president we want for our daughters?” a message on the screen says at the end of the 30-second ad.
A recent Monmouth University poll found Clinton leading Trump by a 46-to-41 percent margin in Florida, with Clinton holding a 54-to-37 percent lead among women and Trump holding a 49-to-35 percent lead among men.
“Donald Trump has spent his campaign, and career, demeaning and insulting women, which is just one of the reasons a majority of American women do not think Trump respects women,” says a Clinton campaign press release announcing the ad. “In stark contrast, Hillary Clinton has spent her career fighting for and uplifting women and girls – and that’s exactly what she’ll continue to do as president.”
