Donald Trump released a new ad in his presidential campaign as his rival Hillary Clinton was officially named the Democratic nominee.
But Trump’s ad did not even mention Clinton, focusing instead on Vermont’s U.S. Bernie Sanders, who is no longer in the race.
The Republican nominee posted the ad Thursday, attacking Sanders for not being able to “handle pressure.”
With the caption, “Bernie caved!” the ad shows video of Sanders urging upset supporters to vote for Clinton as well as footage from when Black Lives Matter protesters took over the stage at a Sanders campaign event.
Though it seems like a strange waste of resources, perhaps there is an underlying strategy in bashing a non-candidate.
