A pro-Jeb Bush super-PAC is pushing a new online ad that says Donald Trump’s positions don’t stand up to conservative scrutiny.

The clip from Right to Rise USA, titled “Iceberg,” shows an ice sculpture of Trump melting as his true record is exposed.

{mosads}“Donald Trump — look past the boasting, and you’ll see right through him,” a narrator says of the Republican front-runner. “He supported partial-birth abortion. His phony Trump University [was] accused of fraud.

“He tried to seize private property to line his own pocket, [he has had] four bankruptcies [and left] small businesses screwed over,” the ad continues.

“Poll after poll shows him losing to [Democratic presidential front-runner] Hillary Clinton,” it concludes. “If Trump wins, conservatives lose.”

Right to Rise USA is investing another $1.7 million on advertisements promoting Bush in South Carolina, according to reports. The group’s spending there now tops more than $10 million ahead of the state’s Feb. 20 GOP primary.

Trump leads the race in the Palmetto State by more than 16 percent, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls. Bush ranks fourth, trailing him by 26 points.
