The one-minute spot, titled “Flag of Treason,” accuses Trump of turning a blind eye to use of Confederate iconography in support of him.
“The men who followed this flag 150 years ago knew what it meant — treason against their country. The death of the United States,” the spot’s narrator says over images of the Confederate flag and numerous Confederate generals.
“America defeated the men who followed that flag. Those with honor surrendered and cast it aside forever. So why does it keep showing up today at events supporting Donald Trump?”

“His blatant racism, dog whistles and disinterest in unifying the country, particularly in recent days following the death of George Floyd, show just how far he is willing to go to stoke fear, incite violence, and ensure the country descends into further chaos up to the election,” the group added.
The Lincoln Project previously caught the president’s ire with a spot titled “Mourning in America,” prompting Trump to launch a series of Twitter attacks against Republican strategists involved with the super PAC, including Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and George Conway.
Reed Galen, a member of the Lincoln Project’s advisory committee, told CNBC the group raised $1 million in a day after the tweets, which he said was a single-day record.
