President Donald Trump's campaign on Sunday released a 30-second TV spot attacking Democrats and the media as "enemies" who are "obstructing" Trump's agenda.
The ad, a 30-second spot that seemed squarely aimed at Trump's shrinking base, shows Democrats like Senators Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren, followed by an array of media figures, as a narrator intones: "Democrats obstructing".
The middle part of the ad - which is notable for its release a day after a white nationalist protest ended in the killing of a woman in Charlottesville, Va. - touted Trump's achievements in his first 200 days in office. In one email sent on Saturday, Team Trump Pence outlined a number of issues in which they said the president was succeeding including "being tough and decisive" on North Korea, and breaking records on the stock market.
The ad then highlights Trump's successes including a million new jobs, the lowest unemployment rate since 2001, the stock market at an all-time high and "the strongest military in decades".

The Dow and S&P 500 inched higher on the day but they both posted their largest weekly percentage drops since late March. Benchmark 10-year notes last rose 7/32 in price to yield 2.1888 percent, from 2.211 percent late on Thursday.
The Donald J Trump For President Twitter account shared the video that also boasted about "the strongest military in decades" as well as the creation of "1 million jobs" in America.
"But Americans are saying, 'Let President Trump do his job, '" the ad concludes-before switching to an image of Trump himself.
"Yet, the mainstream media continue to attack the President and career politicians continue to stand in the way of his progress".
