The Trump campaign released its first TV campaign ad Monday morning, which it says will air in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire beginning Tuesday, Jan. 5.

“The politicians can pretend its something else, but Donald Trump calls it radical Islamic terrorism,” the narrator says in the ad. “That’s why he’s calling for a temporary shutdown on Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what’s going on.”

“He’ll quickly cut the head off of ISIS and take their oil,” he continues. “And he’ll stop illegal immigration by building a wall  on our southern border that Mexico will pay for.”

“We will make America great again,” Trump proclaims before cheering supporters as the ad closes.

According to a press release, Trump plans to spend at least $2 million dollars per week on the TV ad buy, with $1.1 million allocated for TV ad time in Iowa and nearly $1 million for broadcast time in New Hampshire.

“I am leading in every poll by wide, double digit margins. We have tremendous crowds, incredible support from all over the country and I am $35 million dollars under budget. We have spent the least amount of money and have the best results and this is the kind of thinking the country needs. I am very proud of this ad, I don’t know if I need it, but I don’t want to take any chances because if I win we are going to Make America Great Again,” Trump said in the statement.
