"Vera Coking's home was all she had left," the ad says at the start. "But it stood in Donald Trump's way and the limousine parking lot he wanted for his casino."

"To him, she was a nobody," the ad continued.

It went on to say Trump schemed with Atlantic City government so he could force the woman out of her house.

It also flashes to a clip of Trump saying he offered Coking a lot of money "out of ... a little thing called heart." 

"Heart?" Coking then says in another clip shown. "He doesn't have no heart."

The ad continues to criticize Trump for still today supporting eminent domain and flashes to clips of Trump calling eminent domain "wonderful" and saying "we have to use the power of eminent domain."

"Trump uses power for personal gain," the ad says at the end. "Imagine the damage he could do as president."
