Trump Campaign Threatens to Sue TV Stations Over Deceptive Ad

President Trump’s reelection campaign is threatening multiple TV stations with lawsuits for airing an ad alleging the president dismissed the coronavirus as a “hoax.”

The George Soros-backed super PAC, Priorities USA, crafted the ad by creatively splicing audio of Trump in recent weeks while a chart depicts the exponential growth of COVID-19 in the United States.

It is being aired in several television markets in battleground states.

WATCH:

Per Mediaite

Campaign attorney Alex Cannon sent cease and desist letters to all the stations airing the ad, saying they will take legal action if they don’t stop airing it.

“PUSA’s advertisement is false, misleading, and deceptive, and we formally demand that your station refuse to continue airing it to meet your responsibilities not to broadcast false information,” the letter says. “Should you fail to immediately cease broadcasting PUSA’s ad ‘Exponential Threat,’ Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. will have no choice but to pursue all legal remedies available to it in law and in equity; we will not stand idly by and allow you to broadcast false, deceptive, and misleading information concerning President’s Trump’s healthcare positions without consequence.”

  1. Hopefully, the Trump team is prepared to lose another one because this is dead wrong with no proof to take it to court with.

  2. Trump never makes threats, he just does what has to be done, so he just let us know in his inimitable iconic manner that those lawsuits are already launched against the media again – he’s winning.

  3. THE FCC SHOULD BE SUSPENDING THE BROADCAST LICENSE TO DECEITFUL
    STATIONS!!!!! THEY HAVE VIOLATED THE TRUST
    GIVEN THEM TO INFORM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC
    OF CURRENT EVENTS NOT MADE UP STORIES.
    THIS MISINFORMATION IS A DIRECT THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY!!!!!

  4. It is truly disgraceful with the way our President is being vilified. He will win in November by a landslide, the Dems have no one in senile Joe Biden.

  5. Trump shutdown air travel towards the end of January. China didn’t declare a outbreak until the end of January. China hid it for weeks. But The scum called him a racist. So how can you say he didn’t take it seriously. There was no plan by the Federal Government for dealing with a virus like this. With all the past deadly viruses that we have dealt with. How come past administrations had nothing planned for this? They know we only have about a million beds in the entire country. Only so many respirators, only so many PPE. Doesn’t take a whole bunch of people to come up with a plan to deal with a outbreak. But the losers have to bash Trump when people are are dying, unemployed and trapped at home. Soro’s is nothing but a Nazi lover and guess who takes his money.

  6. It is best to pray and leave George Soros and all the other Leaders of Deception, Lies, Greed and Power in the hands of the ultimate Judge of Truth and Justice, Almighty God. Kudos to the President for taking a stand and exposing the true enemy. Everything done in secret will be revealed!

  7. Free speech and Freedom of the Press are cover ups for evil minded people to spread lies about others who are working diligently to help our nation in a real time of crisis. These activities need to be fully vetted and thoroughly investigated to alleviate slanderous misinformation about people who are serving with great compassion and dedication, no matter who they are. And no matter how much money they wield in their evil intentions.

    Wherever there are good men & women serving with integrity and compassion you will find a jaded movement making attempts to bring them down through lies, deceptions and the slight of hand in an attempt to destroy peoples attempts to do the right and honorable things for others.

    The abuse of the mainstream media propaganda and its use of lies continues to divide our nation and has got to come to a screeching halt! Let’s deal with it now! Once and for all!

  8. Not that imposter POS Obama. He was an illegal president and did nothing good for the US at all. I am tired of hearing his name. He should be in prison.

  9. FINALLY a President that will fight back and not roll-over! The ad will be pulled faster than Doomberg can say how much he hates guns!

    • John H, You just wait. As a born again Christian I believe I know where Soros is going before too much longer.

      • Good call the Feds or the 500,000 Top Marines, that only report to Trump himself. FACT, oh yea plus 50,000 more in reserve!

  10. Soros has done enough to merit his citizenship be revoked and then he can be deported, so why has the immigration and justice department not followed thru on this action, deport him back to where he came from with the provision that he can never step foot in the US again, he lied on his immigration application when he said he was not involved with war criminals

  11. Fake news almost made Hillary President, she did not deserve a chance to run after all she did wrong. Yes, sue the stations and people that produced the ad. Same for anyone wrongfully accused or portrayed incorrectly just to change public opinion in a political race. Shame on TV, yet again.

  12. Duh, there won’t be an election. For whom? They are ALL going to prison at least. INSURRECTION ACT 1807,WORKS AND USED BY TWO OTHER PRESIDENTS, THESE PEOPLE IN THE LEFT ARE TRAITORS, ITS THAT OBVIOUS

  13. Sue them over and over! Americans are tired of these democrat lawbreakers always getting a pass and never paying for their broken laws! They always get off!
