“Trump should know how he’s failed you as president — whether that’s on health care, a living wage, gun violence, climate change, or something else entirely,” Steyer’s campaign told supporters on Saturday. “It’s time Trump heard directly from the many, many people around the country who are hurting and frustrated because of his corrupt and cruel administration.”

Participants can record a 25-second video and upload or email it to the Steyer campaign.

The ad campaign will run in the days leading up to the October Democratic debate, the campaign said. 

It’s the first debate for which Steyer, a billionaire philanthropist, will appear onstage. 

Before launching his presidential bid, Steyer built a grassroots movement of more than 8.3 million supporters calling for Trump’s impeachment. 

The House launched an official impeachment inquiry into Trump last week amid allegations in a whistleblower complaint that the White House placed calls between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on a highly classified server.
