Priorities USA Executive Director Patrick McHugh released the group’s first TV ads of 2020, scheduled to run in battleground states. The first ad seeks to show “the real negative impact that Trump’s policies, chaos, impulsiveness, and arrogance are having on people’s lives,” McHugh tweeted.
The ad begins and ends with the president’s quote “I have the right to do whatever I want as president.” In between, there are scattered news reports about the January 2019 government shutdown and Trump’s policies on health care, North Korea and ISIS.

The second ad focuses on a breast cancer survivor named Amy, who says the president is threatening her health care.
“Now Donald Trump wants to eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions like mine,” she says. “It would make it impossible for people like me to find affordable health care.”
“If Donald Trump had his way, I would no longer have health insurance coverage,” she added.
Trump's administration is backing a court challenge to overturn ObamaCare and eliminate its protections for those with pre-existing conditions.
The ad ends with the text “Donald Trump isn’t working for us,” overlaid on the screen.
