New DeSantis Ad Hits Trump’s Broken Promise to Prosecute “Crooked Hillary”

The video’s timestamps show how the former president broke his promise to hold Hillary Clinton accountable after he won the 2016 election.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A new ad for Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign takes aim at former president Donald Trump’s broken promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton.

The ad was posted on Monday evening from the pro-DeSantis super PAC Never Back Down with the caption: “Despite his 2016 campaign promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton, Trump chose to ‘help her heal’ instead of healing the rule of law.”

The caption also added a quote from Trump himself, in which he responded to a crowd chanting “lock her up!”

“That plays great before the election,” Trump said. “Now we don't care, right?”
