New Ad Slams Trump’s Health Care Failures for Black Americans

Under Trump: “Hundreds of thousands of Black Americans lost health care.”

Today, Biden-Harris 2024 is launching a new television ad, “Failure” which outlines how President Biden is delivering after Donald Trump tried to rip away healthcare from hundreds of thousands of Black Americans during his time in the Oval Office.

As bad as Trump’s presidency was for Black Americans, a second term would  be even more devastating. Trump has continuously threatened to terminate the Affordable Care Act, which would drive up health care costs and nearly double the Black uninsured rate with an estimated 3.1 million Black Americans losing their health care. And, he’s threatening to roll back the Inflation Reduction Act, which would drive insulin costs back up after President Biden capped the cost at $35 per month for seniors. As president, Joe Biden has protected the Affordable Care Act from repeated MAGA attacks and expanded access. President Biden’s efforts have resulted in more Black families being covered than ever before, lowered health care premiums and lowered costs of prescription drugs.

This ad will run as part of a new $14 million campaign for the month of May and will air on TV on ESPN, VH1, BET, OWN network and on TNT during the NBA playoffs. This ad buy is a part of Team Biden-Harris 2024’s May push to ramp up investments to bolster its existing, historic efforts to reach the voters that will decide this election. It also comes one day after the launch of Health Care Providers for Biden-Harris, a national organizing program engaging doctors, nurses, and other health care leaders and providers in mobilizing Black, Latino, and middle-class families, and seniors.

The following is a statement from Biden-Harris 2024 Principal Deputy Campaign Manager Quentin Fulks on the new ad:

“Since Black voters sent Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House in 2020, they have worked day in and day out to protect the health care of millions of Black Americans and lower health care costs for our community. Whether it was his inability to lead us through the COVID-19 pandemic, or his repeated attempts to rip away health care from millions, Donald Trump was a complete failure for Black America.  A second term would be even more disastrous. The stakes are too high for Black voters this election to allow Trump to step foot back in the Oval Office. That’s why, throughout the month of May, our campaign is continuing efforts to reach Black voter’s earlier, more often and more aggressively than any other reelection campaign in history.”
