Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump criticizes his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for her economic proposals in a new ad.

{mosads}”In Hillary Clinton’s America, the middle class gets crushed. Spending goes up. Taxes go up. Hundreds of thousands of jobs disappear,” a narrator says in the 30-second spot, titled “Two Americas: Economy.”

“It’s more of the same, but worse.”

The ad then pivots to “Donald Trump’s America,” saying that working families would get tax relief, new jobs would be created, wages would go up and small businesses would thrive under a Trump presidency.

“The American dream, achievable,” the narrator says in the ad.

“Change that makes America great again.”

The GOP nominee’s campaign, which has been far outspent by his Democratic rival, planned a major ad buy of upwards of $10 million on commercials to air as soon as Monday, The Associated Press reported.

The ads will air in nine states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada, according to the news service.

Trump’s senior communications adviser, Jason Miller, said in a statement that Trump’s “positive message of economic opportunity is working and we see the nation and battleground state polls all moving in the right direction.”

“With Hillary Clinton off the campaign trail yet again this week and continuing to take many communities’ votes for granted, we see this as the right time to show voters the benefits of an American economy under the leadership of Mr. Trump,” he added, according to the AP.
