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.

CNN’s Toobin rips into Bill Barr’s ‘out of control’ attacks on the FBI: ‘Such outrageous behavior’
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin blasted Attorney General William Barr for his ongoing attempts to undermine the inspector general report clearing the FBI of Republican conspiracy theories.
"Bill Barr is going to keep investigating the FBI until someone condemns him the way he wants it and the way people on Fox News want it," said Toobin. "This is such outrageous behavior by the attorney general. And he's even dragging down with him John Durham, who had a good reputation as a U.S. Attorney in Connecticut who is doing the next investigation of this, and he comes out of nowhere with an incomplete investigation and disparages Horowitz's report yesterday."
Russian foreign minster said he didn’t discuss elections with Trump — who said they discussed the 2016 election meddling
President Donald Trump warned Moscow against meddling in next year's election, the White House said Tuesday, but Russia's foreign minister denied the issue came up in a Washington meeting that drew controversy for occurring at all.
On the very day that House Democrats unveiled impeachment charges against Trump related to election interference, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met Trump behind closed doors at the White House after saying he sought more cooperation.
The White House in a statement said that Trump "warned against any Russian attempts to interfere in United States elections and urged Russia to resolve the conflict with Ukraine."
