Marc Anthony narrated a fiery Lincoln Project attack ad against President Trump released Friday, urging Puerto Ricans to “vote him out” on Tuesday.

“Puerto Ricans deserve better than Trump because we are better than Trump,” the Latin music singer says in the anti-Trump GOP group’s ad. “Better than his contempt, better than his neglect, better than his lies.”

Various clips of the president are shown throughout the ad, including his visit to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria when he infamously tossed paper towels at a crowd and joked that the U.S. territory was “throwing our budget a little out of whack.”

“On Nov. 3, Puerto Ricans will send Trump a clear message,” says Anthony, who was born in New York to Puerto Rican parents. “We remember the lies. We remember the disrespect. We remember you left too many of us to die.”

The ad targets Puerto Ricans who have relocated to the mainland United States, specifically those in key battleground states such as Florida.

Puerto Rican Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced recently endorsed Trump for reelection, hoping to improve his chances in the Sunshine State.
