President Donald Trump’s campaign on Monday released a new ad slamming House Speaker Paul Ryan for a $1,550,000 check that the campaign spent to buy four “Mud tires” for the presidential motorcade.
The ads, which are set to air on local stations over the next few weeks, are a departure from the standard anti-Ryan message.
The campaign had previously used the same message in recent weeks, targeting Ryan’s fellow Republicans for their support of President Donald J. Trump’s policies.
The campaign released the ads as Trump prepares to return to Washington next week.
Trump, in the last weeks of his presidency, has been particularly critical of the Republican leadership.
The Trump campaign said in a statement Monday that Ryan is responsible for “throwing the nation off track” by not holding a health care vote.
The ad also accuses Ryan of having the “total and complete” control over the House and Senate, and calls on the House to vote on a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or ACA.
It says Ryan is also responsible for the loss of jobs in the auto industry and for the “massive loss” of federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
The Hill reached out to the Trump campaign for comment and will update this post if we hear back.
