If there’s a villain in the video released by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s 2018 re-election campaign, it’s President Donald Trump, who he had publicly tangled with before the New York businessman launched his presidential campaign.
The video released Wednesday more than a year before Schneiderman is on the ballot highlights his legal challenges to the Trump business empire by taking on the for-profit Trump University and his policies as president, including rewriting environmental regulations and efforts to restrict and limit immigration.
The video was released along with a fundraising appeal, with supporters being asked to give $3.
“Eric is fighting to preserve New Yorkers’ access to affordable healthcare, clean air and water, and a growing, diverse economy that respects New York values,” the campaign said. “From suing to block Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim Ban, to fighting to preserve the Clean Power Plan, to defending New York’s 40,000 DREAMers, Eric is working hard day and night to protect New York from Trump’s dangerous agenda.”
Schneiderman is seeking a third term as attorney general next year.
