Mike Bloomberg’s campaign announced Wednesday that it would air a new 30-second ad titled “Pandemic” asserting that the US was not prepared for the coronavirus because of President Trump’s budget cuts at the Centers for Disease Control, among others.
“With the virus officially hitting the US and spreading, Americans are becoming increasingly worried for their health and safety — but because of President Trump’s reckless cuts to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s funding and his senseless elimination of protective measures put in place following the last pandemic Ebola virus outbreak, the US is underprepared for coronavirus,” Bloomberg’s campaign charged.
The 30-second spot — the latest aired by the former mayor, who has spent millions of dollars of his own money on campaign ads — will run nationally on cable, broadcast and digital platforms.
“Trump is putting American lives at risk every day, ignoring science, claiming the virus will ‘miraculously’ disappear by April and relying on ‘warm weather’ to end the spread of the virus. It is clearer than ever that the country needs a leader with real experience managing a crisis,” Team Bloomberg continued.
“Managing a crisis is what Mike Bloomberg does,” the ad itself begins. “In the aftermath of 9/11, he steadied and rebuilt America’s largest city, oversaw emergency response to natural disasters, upgraded hospital preparedness to manage health crises, and he’s funding cutting edge research to contain epidemics.”
