    It's one of a few angles. I do think there is a great deal of material for attack ads that illustrate what Americans are voting on. For instance, the "raise your hand if you support free healthcare for illegal immigrants" question at the Dem debates is food on a platter. No wonder they are doing away with that. I can still see the slow, late hand raise by Biden.

    Regardless, such an attack ad alone will move Independents off the fence to say "to hell with that, I'm voting for Trump tomorrow!" The far left has attacked so many issues that Americans hold true, and the more all people in the U.S feel patriotic, the better it is for Trump.

    Blacks, Hispanics, men and women of all sexual orientation who say, "I sort of like this new USA USA compared to the old, polite, weak America" will all vote for Trump just to keep those feelings of Exceptionalism in the forefront.

    These are the dem's policies that Trump can abuse with commercials 24/7:

    1. Open borders, tear down the southern border fence/wall (show the stampede of migrants from all over the globe overwhelming the US)
    2. Sanctuary cities & states (show MS-13 and drugs, homeless in CA, needles & poop on the streets, etc.)
    3. Free college (even for illegals, but your kids can't get in because only democrats go to free college, like Lois Lerner punished conservative PACs)
    4. Single Payer Healthcare, aka rationed healthcare, "Medicare for all" (problem is the hospitals would close, only democrats get healthcare)
    5. Eliminate ICE and DHS, turn the US into the EU, with muslim "no go zones" (armed gangs would be running wild, local police overwhelmed)
    6. Promote Globalism, whatever Wall Street wants Wall Street gets, see K-Street Cash (dems say "bribe me" my vote is for sale)
    7. Paris Climate Change Treaty where the US pays $trillions to poor countries (taxes would climb so we could pay India & China & Africa?!)
    8. Stupid trade agreements, e.g tax breaks to move factories overseas ("those jobs are not coming back")
    9. Let China run roughshod over the US for trade and intellectual property (like before Trump)
    10. Let NK develop nukes and ICBM delivery systems, have no one capable of dealing with NK (like before Trump)
    11. Raise taxes to 70% on the wealthy, especially on corporations so they relocate overseas (who needs jobs?, dems have taxes)
    12. Opioid problem running rampant across the US (like before Trump)
    13. Gangs like MS-13 running rampant across the US (imagine this problem w/o borders or ICE)
    14. No steel or mining industries due to foreign "dumping" of subsidized products (like before Trump)
    15. Give $Trillions to Mexico and Central America for a Marshal Plan, but not help US citizens living in tent cities (show tent cities & poop on streets)
    16. Impose gun control, outlaw private gun sales, outlaw AR style rifles, restrict sales of bullets, etc. (Exec Order the 2nd amendment away)
    17. "Green New Deal" Impose a "carbon tax" to punish anyone who works, heats their home, flies, or has a car (do a TV special on this mess)
    18. Anti-business democrat socialists caused Amazon to flee NYC taking 25,000 good paying jobs to VA (dems are anti-jobs)
    19. REPARATIONS to blacks to pay for slavery, $trillions owed by US voters (this is a winning commercial)
    20. Promote or excuse the murder of newborns, i.e. "infanticide" (make the ladies cry commercial)
    21. Change the Electoral College to popular vote (no more GOP presidents, the US becomes Russia, thanks Bernie)

    He had the House, Senate and the Oval for 2 years. Didn’t get shit done.

    And as of this moment, there is zero new wall being built.

    He’s failed. You’d have to use your imagination to believe that in any way, the blob was successful in his policy initiatives.

    Promises Kept | President Donald J. Trump's Accomplishments

    As for the wall construction status
    Trump's border wall - in seven charts
    Overall, $6.1bn in funding had been secured by May 2019 to build 336 miles of new and replacement border wall, according to US Customs and Border Protection. This includes funding approved by Congress as well as extra cash Mr Trump has been able to access since he declared a state of emergency in February.

    The 336 miles of planned barrier includes: 86 miles of "new primary wall", 24 miles of "new levee wall" and 226 miles of replacement barriers. About 40 miles of replacement barriers have so far been completed, with construction of a further 55 miles now under way. Department of Defense funding is also paying for an additional 131 miles.

    The first construction on any extension to existing structures - what could be termed new barrier - has started in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, where 13 miles of "new border wall system and levee wall system" is being built.

    Although a further 95 miles is planned for that location, construction at five major landmarks along its length has been prohibited and some landowners have gone to court in an attempt to stop building on their property.

    Why is it not surprising that making excuses would be your ace in the hole?

    He also got Mexico to pay their troops to close their border, so is slows illegals at our border. Even though liberals are fighting him tooth and nail. He is getting things done, despite unamerican liberals trying to bring him down.
