Each of the videos features testimony from ordinary Americans talking about their struggles to keep up in the economy and to pay for expensive medical treatments.

The ads will run statewide June 17 to 24 and are part of $100 million that Priorities USA will spend on digital advertising and infrastructure in Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania this cycle.

“Florida is a must-win state for Trump and he hopes to have the news to himself this week,” said Priorities USA chairman Guy Cecil. “These ads will help cut through his noise and give voters a look at the truth about Trump’s policies.”

Trump will hold a campaign rally Tuesday in Orlando to mark the launch of his reelection bid.
