Eager to turn attention back to Donald Trump and his long history of controversial statements, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on Tuesday launched a new battleground-state TV ad that paints the Republican nominee as a misogynist and highlights the many allegations of sexual assault against him.

In the ad — which is airing in Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania — Mr. Trump’s own comments are played back over top of phrases like, “He really believes this.”

Mr. Trump’s now-infamous 2005 boast about being able to grope women because of his celebrity status is included in the commercial, as are other questionable statements.

“A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10,” the businessman says in one clip highlighted in the ad.

“When I come home and dinner’s not ready, I go through the roof,” he says in another.

The commercial also focuses heavily on the dozen woman who have accused Mr. Trump of sexual assault.

It closes with a message the Clinton campaign will be driving home throughout the final week of the campaign.

“Anyone who believes, says, does what he does, is unfit to be president,” the ad says.
