Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign halted radio and television advertising spending this week while it reviews its strategy under new campaign management.

Trump Spends 9-in-10 Advertising Dollars Defending States He Won

All I know is I see his dishonest ads all the time here in Florida. Joe Biden specifically said he does not support defunding the police but the Trump ads claim he favors it over and over.

""No, I don't support defunding the police," the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said in an interview with CBS while in Houston to meet with the family of George Floyd, whose death last month as a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck set off nationwide protests. "I support conditioning federal aid to police based on whether or not they meet certain basic standards of decency and honorableness. And, in fact, are able to demonstrate they can protect the community and everybody in the community."

Seeing numbers like that make me nervous again.

He spent very very little in 2016 and got by, probably because the media gave him free advertising every time he opened his idiotic orange mouth.

This time around they're spending very little but have not only the media again but also the full force of the federal government to back him.

Just makes me wary that they're keeping the cash because that's the point and the win is already figured out by some other extra-electoral means.

More money into Trumps pockets if he doesn't spend it. He's waving the white flag.

Since he's likely to lose the election, my guess is that Trump's setting up dummy corporations channeling money into his accounts so he can further bilk the rubes who donate to his campaign.

No sense in Trump spending cash on the Brad Parscales of the world when he could be banking that cash for his next wives and his impending criminal defense cases.

I see Trump ads all the time in Portland, in between local news footage of federal troops gassing moms and veterans.
I wonder which clips will be more effective.

Over $200 million of campaign money is already missing with nothing to show for it, not even any receipts nor any invoices. They just say, trust me, it went where it will do the most good.

"Over $200 million of campaign money is already missing "

Hmmmmmm ~~ that makes me wonder how much Rudy Giuliani paid for that mysterious "anti-Biden" package that GOP Rep. Nunes received "from a Ukrainian official."

Double Hmmmmmmm!

JPW @ #3

Trump doesn't have Hillary to kick around this time ~~ nor Comey to lie about an investigation ~~ nor rallies to spread his propaganda ~~ nor truthfulness as an ally ~~ nor an economy and full employment to brag about ~~ nor does he have any of the false impressions he created about himself in 2016.

All Trump has now is a prediction of 200,000 American deaths by November, a 4 yr. history of irresponsibility and a long list of CYA shame-blaming.

I suspect the Trump campaigh finally realized that they aren't going to be able to lie about Joe Biden and expect it to work so most of their ads are useless. Most of them try to frighten citizens that if JOe Biden wins they will be in physical danger and it just doesn't ring true with anyone. Obvious lies like that will always backfire.

Trump is just gonna keep the money.

You should send him some more, Willowby.

"You should send him some more, Willowby."

You'd have to send some to begin with in order to send more, idiot.

Never donated to a Republican or a Commucrat.
