WASHINGTON D.C. – Former Vice President Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and a group of television hosts from CNN and MSNBC are all featured in President Donald Trump’s new ad that launched late yesterday.

Tweeting the video, President Trump added, “I AM DRAINING THE SWAMP!”

The ad largely focuses on Biden’s efforts to force the firing of a Ukrainian official who was reportedly investigating Ukrainian energy Burisma. Biden’s son Hunter worked for that company and is reported to have been receiving $50,000 or more per month in wire transfers from Burisma to his consulting firm.

Joe Biden was recorded at a Council on Foreign Relations event bragging that he told Ukraine that if they did not fire the prosecutor investigating his son’s company, they would not get $1 billion in United States assistance.

“If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” says Biden in the ad.

“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired,” continues Biden, to laughter in the room.

The ad goes on flashing from Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky shaking hands recently at a meeting, to a series of television personalities from the two more liberal networks, “But when President Trump asks Ukraine to investigate corruption, the Democrats want to impeach him, and their media lap dogs fall in line.”

“They lost the election, now they want to steal this one,” the ad concludes, with a shot of Pelosi and Schumer.

President Trump’s son Eric Trump tweeted that in the first 72 hours after Speaker Pelosi announced she would back the impeachment inquiry, the President had raised almost $15 million, including donations from more than 50,000 new donors.
