Robert De Niro Narrates an Anti-Trump Ad for Biden

U.S.Robert De Niro Narrates an Anti-Trump Ad for Biden

President Biden’s campaign released a new ad on Friday narrated by the actor Robert De Niro that seeks to remind voters of the chaos of Donald J. Trump’s presidency and warn them that a second Trump term would be even worse.

The spot is part of the Biden campaign’s $14 million May advertising effort and will air on television and digital platforms in battleground states, as well as on national cable channels.

Mr. De Niro openly opposed Mr. Trump’s presidency, calling him “baby-in-chief” at the National Board of Review awards gala in 2018 and using profanity to condemn him during the Tony Awards that year.

It opens with Mr. De Niro’s distinctive voice playing over images of Mr. Trump during the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020.

“From midnight tweets, to drinking bleach, to tear-gassing citizens and staging a photo op, we knew Trump was out of control when he was president,” Mr. De Niro says. “Then he lost the 2020 election — and snapped.” (The bleach reference was a nod to Mr. Trump’s suggestion that an “injection inside” the body with a disinfectant could help treat the coronavirus.)
