Lincoln Project Fires Back: Ad Criticizes Trump, Republicans for Border Bill Obstruction

A new Lincoln Project commercial running in Florida and South Carolina criticizes Donald Trump and Washington Republicans for delaying a bill that would fund border security and help Israel and Ukraine.

The one-minute “Security” is broadcast near Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and Charlottesville.

Its message is clear: If voters want to safeguard America’s southern border and combat unauthorized immigration, sex trafficking, dangerous drugs, and terrorism, the former President is not the guy for the job.

“Joe Biden is ready to protect America’s southern border,” according to the campaign. “There’s only one problem: Donald Trump, (who) has ordered Republicans to block the toughest immigration bill in decades … because Donald Trump needs chaos to win.”

Senate Republicans blocked a bipartisan border and international aid deal on Wednesday, putting an end to months of negotiations with Democrats over measures to reduce record numbers of illegal border crossings.

The action occurred after Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, criticized the concept in January. House Speaker Mike Johnson and Sen. Marco Rubio both promptly rejected it, claiming online that no acceptable deal could ever be struck with Biden in the White House.

Meanwhile, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell alleged that Trump had coerced House Republicans into opposing any arrangement. Mitt Romney denounced the strategy.

“Please hurt my country so I can blame my opponent and help my politics is a shocking development,” stated the presidential candidate.

Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson described it as “one of the most sinister political maneuvers you’ll ever see.”

“Trump has formed a tacit alliance with the drug cartels and child traffickers, allowing them to keep operating along the border because he thinks it will help his campaign,” he said in a prepared statement. “Trump and the MAGAs are the best allies the cartels and coyotes could ever have.”

The latest commercial follows others produced recently by the Lincoln Project that compare Trump’s vision for the United States to Nazi Germany, reminding voters of the violence and turbulence Americans experienced during his one-term rule and emphasizing his legal issues with sexual assault and defamation.
