Why Is the New York Times Running a Campaign-Style Attack Ad Against Trump?

The New York Times is out with a new ad on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections that comes across like a campaign-style attack ad against President Trump, accusing him of possibly committing a “federal crime.”

The 30-second ad appeared during a commercial break on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” around 8:30 a.m. Monday and highlights the Times’ reporting on Trump’s tax returns.

The video plays a clip of Trump saying, “a very, very small loan from my father,” while various text appears on screen.

Text crosses the screen: “Trump. Fred Trump. Search public Trump documents. Documents lead to sources. Sources lead to documents. Unseen Documents. Unseen bank statements. Unseen trust funds. Unseen tax returns.”

The ad then highlights how the New York Times spent 18 months deciphering “all 100,000 documents.”

“Connect all the puzzle pieces together to find possible tax fraud, find possible federal crime, find $400 million dodged, find Trump not self-made,” then appears on the screen.

“I built this empire. I did it by myself,” Trump says before more text appears on the screen.

The text reads: “The truth takes rigor. The truth is worth it. The New York Times. Subscribe Now.”
