Hillary Clinton has rolled out her first anti-Trump ads — and the likely Democratic nominee doesn’t say a word about the presumptive GOP nominee.
Instead, the Clinton camp leaves the ads up to Donald Trump’s own soundbites and former GOP competitors dissecting the real-estate mogul’s character.
The first consists of just Donald, saying what he would do as president.
“Everything I say, I’m going to do, folks.” —Trump

The other ad consists of all GOPs, detailing why Donald should not be president. It’s so fresh that it includes a clip of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) comments yesterday after Trump cited a National Enquirer piece accusing Cruz’s dad of being associated with the JFK assassination. It also includes Mitt Romney’s anti-Trump speech and Jeb Bush noting that Trump “needs therapy.”
Clinton followed the release with a campaign email listing quotes from conservatives who have come out against Trump.
She also retweeted Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who went on a tear against Trump on her Facebook page Tuesday.
“Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia. There’s more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls. He incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and, according to a columnist who recently interviewed him, is ‘cool with being called an authoritarian’ and doesn’t mind associations with history’s worst dictators,” Warren wrote.
“He attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our servicemembers at risk by cheerleading illegal torture. In a world with ISIS militants and leaders like North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests, he surrounds himself with a foreign policy team that has been called a ‘collection of charlatans,’ and puts out contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas one expert recently called ‘incoherent’ and ‘truly bizarre,'” she continued.
“What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent. It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness. I know which side I’m on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.”
