Trump touts 'success' of his first 100 days as president, slams 'fake news' in new ad

Trump's campaign is behind the $1.5 million ad buy.

On Monday, he released a television advertisement that highlights what he calls his achievements from his first three months and takes a shot at his favorite target: the media.

"America has rarely seen such success," the commercial's voice-over says.

Critics of Trump, including Democrats in Washington, have been quick to point out the president's failures on several high-profile initiatives at the start of his term, including a withdrawn health care bill and the "travel ban" halted by a federal judge.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Trump's first 100 days "historically dismal," and assigned him multiple "F" grades at a press conference last week.

In a press release, the Trump campaign noted that the "$1.5 million dollar ad buy will air on television in major markets throughout the United States as well as target specific voting groups online."

Though he just reached the 100-day point in his first term as president Saturday, Trump seems to have begun campaigning again. In addition to the television ad, the president has already appeared and spoken at a number of campaign rallies, despite his next election being more than three-and-a-half years away.
