Latest Trump Ad: 'He'll quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil'

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Donald Trump has released his first TV ad of the presidential primary season, and it quickly touches on his most controversial proposals.

"The politicians can pretend it's something else, but Donald Trump calls it radical Islamic terrorism...That's why he's calling for a temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what's going on. He'll quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil," the Trump-approved ad states.

Trump also promises to build a wall along the southern border of the United States and make Mexico pay for it. 

The ad will run beginning Tuesday in New Hampshire and Iowa. So far this campaign, Trump has spent just over $200,000 and all that has been on radio ads.

He's promising to ramp up his ad budget to about $2 million per week as the Iowa caucuses begin on February 1st.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush is hinting strongly that his closing argument to New Hampshire voters will be about U.S. military buildup specifically aimed at defeating the Islamic State group.
    
In a new television advertisement Monday, the former Florida governor, whose campaign rests on how he competes in the leadoff primary next month, features excerpts from a speech he delivered last month in South Carolina. The ad debuted as he gears up for a three-day campaign trip in New Hampshire beginning Tuesday.
    
Bush has called for a broad international coalition led by the United States and Arab nations to destroy the group, now rooted in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere in the region. The group claimed responsibility for the November bombings and shootings in Paris in which roughly 130 were killed. U.S. residents, said to have been loyal to the militant group, were also responsible for the deadly shootings in San Bernadino, Calif. last month.
    
Though Bush is not a military veteran, he has been traveling throughout New Hampshire frequently with retired military veterans and Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, to boost his national security credentials. The ad features footage from a speech gave at the Military College of the South, known as the Citadel, in Charleston South Carolina last month.
    
Bush is scheduled to campaign in Dover Tuesday.

Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz say they are spending $1 million on television and radio advertisements that portray rival Marco Rubio as unserious - using fantasy football as a means for getting their message across. Left unsaid is that the Rubio footage included is a spoof made by the candidate himself.
    
The 30-second TV version of the ad opens with images of armed soldiers and a warning that the Islamic State terrorist group is "plotting to kill Americans." It soon pivots to the question, "What would Marco Rubio's leadership look like?" and shows him at a laptop computer and on a mobile phone. "Yeah, I know I have a debate, but I've got to get this fantasy football thing right, OK?" The ad concludes by saying "America can't afford to gamble with its safety."
    
The fantasy football clip is from Rubio's own campaign. It was meant as comedy relief before the GOP debate in October. The campaign put the video on Youtube and included a link to sign up to support Rubio.
    
The anti-Rubio ad is paid for mostly by Robert Mercer, a New York hedge fund magnate who is contributing to a super political action committee that faces no campaign finance restrictions and has pledged support to Cruz.
    
Rubio's aides dismissed the strategy, with his New Hampshire-based senior adviser Jim Merrill writing on Twitter that the ad is "redefining dumb."
