The ad, which is just over a minute long, refers to Trump’s position when he sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin rather than trusting his own country’s intelligence when it came to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump notoriously disregarded reports that U.S. officials knew that Russia allegedly paid members of the Taliban to carry out a fatal attack on American soldiers.
The ad says, “This July Fourth, Benedict Arnold can step aside, because Benedict Donald is America’s number one traitor.”
After the ad was released, it was viewed more than 2 million times within 12 hours and the hashtags #BenedictDonald and #TRE45ON were immediately trending on Twitter.
This isn’t the first video VoteVets has released that slammed Trump. Last month they hit the internet with another video calling him out for treason again.
VoteVets has also criticized Trump for being responsible for what they say was “the most inappropriate” Memorial Day comment ever made by a President. Take a look for yourself:
