About This Ad

I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message. After John Kasich helped Wall Street predator Lehman Brothers destroy the world economy, he decided to run for governor of Ohio. John Kasich has been an absentee governor, spending most of his time everywhere but Ohio. Especially Michigan, the latest disaster in his failing presidential bid. Kasich gave Ohio Obamacare and increased our budget more than any other governor in the U.S. We don't need him in Ohio and we certainly don't need him in Washington. John Kasich. Just another all talk, no action politician.

"John Kasich helped Wall Street predator Lehman Brothers destroy the world economy," claims this ad, which Trump's campaign has aired in Ohio leading up to the March 15 primary. The Washington Post's Fact Checker gives the ad "four Pinocchios," meaning it's a "whopper." "[I]t’s preposterous and simply not credible to say Kasich, as one managing director out of 700, in a firm of 25,000, “helped” the firm “destroy the world economy.”

About the Dataset

The Political TV Ad Archive, powered by the Internet Archive, is pulling together resources from a variety of sources to create an archive of political TV ads in key primary states. Each ad has its own canonical web page (sample here), and associated downloadable metadata. Some metadata are added by the Internet Archive; some generated via the media itself (such as count of ads, how many times an ad has aired, etc.); and some come from our partners.
