Trump Campaign Spot Features New World Trade Center

Check out Donald Trump's latest campaign ad - which will run in nine swing states - Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada - to the tune of $10 million.

While the 30 second clip depicts two different future "Americas" - one failing under Hillary Clinton, the other bright and shiny under the Trumpster - the folks over at Right Wing Watch noticed near the end of the spot the inclusion of the new 1 World Trade Center.

The tower’s inclusion in the ad is curious because Trump himself was a vocal opponent of the One World Trade Center project, claiming in 2005 that design of the tower let “the terrorists win.”

“I don’t want to have the terrorists win … and that’s what’s going to happen if we build this pile of junk,” he said.

Trump had proposed instead building a taller version of the Twin Towers, calling the design that was ultimately chosen “disgusting,” “just terrible,” “a catastrophe” and “the worst pile of crap architecture I have ever seen in my life.”

The spot also makes a point to include an African-American family next to the U.S. flag.

So subtle.
