President Donald Trump has released a new campaign ad that features swelling orchestral music, dramatic montages of him walking across airport tarmacs and a brand-new slogan for the 2020 election.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist,” the text at the beginning of the video, interspersed with images of the US Capitol building, former President Barack Obama and former Trump presidential rival Hillary Clinton, reads.
“Trump: The Great Victory” the video concludes at the end, potentially previewing a new campaign slogan.

As many political spectators on Twitter noted, the dramatic soundtrack to the video sounds a lot like Hans Zimmer’s theme from The Dark Knight Rises.
“Was not prepared for the latest weird Trump team video project to be an extremely timely The Dark Knight Rises parody trailer where Hillary Clinton is Bane,” one user noted.
