Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is hitting the airwaves for the first time during the 2016 race with a $300,000 radio buy in the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

The buy, consisting of two radio ads, is scheduled to run through the end of November.

Donald Trump learned the values of hard work, determination and faith at an early age,” a narrator says in one spot. “He went on to build one of the world’s most iconic brands and companies which employs thousands of people.”

Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action. They will never make our country great again,” the ad says.

The ad also reiterates his plan to build a wall on the United States’ southern border and make Mexico pay for it.

“He’ll negotiate trade deals and make our country so strong no country will ever mess with us,” the ad says. “Donald Trump will protect Israel, and brutally and quickly cut the head off of ISIS.”

The ad also says he’s self-funding his campaign and won’t be controlled by special interests or lobbyists.

“It’s time to make America great again. Maybe greater than ever before. Vote Donald Trump for president,” the ad says.

In another ad, Mr. Trump himself says politicians are all talk and no action and his opponents have no experience in creating jobs or making deals.

“I’ll secure our borders and yes, we will have a wall,” he says. “You can’t have a country without borders.”

The spots were previewed Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Mr. Trump said he had an advertising budget of more than $20 million to this point, but hasn’t had to spend any of it because of the success of his campaign.

“I am so honored to say that I have spent less money than any candidate in either party and at the same time, have the best result — #1! Despite this great success, I am now going to start advertising,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
