President Trump's 2020 campaign previewed its Super Bowl ad on Thursday, touting Trump's economic accomplishments.

The state of play: In a press release, the campaign stated the ad is one of two 30-second ads the campaign will air. The second one will debut during the game. Trump's campaign claims this is the first time that a presidential campaign purchased national Super Bowl advertising.

  • Trump's campaign purchased the two 30-second slots with Fox Network back in December.
  • A 30-second Super Bowl ad cost $5.25 million in 2019, according to Statista.

The other side: 2020 presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is also airing an $11 million Super Bowl ad promoting gun safety after the halftime show.

Now they likely must choose between accepting onerous data-sharing and censorship requirements, or leaving Hong Kong.
