Club for Growth, a Washington-based group that supports conservative economic policies, is fed up with Donald Trump’s rise among the GOP base. In fact, it’s terrified. Why? Because they believe he is a liberal in GOP clothing, and want to expose him.
“[Donald’s] the worst kind of politician – he says anything to get elected and will do just the opposite once he’s in office,” said David McIntosh, president of the Club for Growth.
Club for Growth Action, the group’s political arm, announced today that it will launch a $1 million ad campaign in Iowa to prove to Republican voters that Trump is not one of them.
The campaign is launching two ads. The first asks voters, “Which presidential candidate supports higher taxes, national health care, and the Wall Street bailout?” After showing images of Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the ad plays a clip of Trump saying, “In many cases, I probably identify more as a Democrat.”
The second ad focuses on the issue of eminent domain, charging that “Trump supports eminent domain abuse because he can make millions while we lose our property rights.”
