Bloomberg has reported that Youtube’s homepage will feature ads in support of Donald Trump’s reelection campaign on election day 2020.
Trump’s reelection campaign bought out YouTube’s masthead ad space for “early November” including election day, November 3, according to Bloomberg. By purchasing this highly trafficked ad space, the Trump campaign is betting that the visibility could aid his candidacy in some of the most important days leading up to the election.Via The Verge
This is not the first time the Trump campaign has purchased the masthead ad space, as last summer during the first democratic debate his campaign did the same thing. As the debate was available to be streamed live on Youtube viewers saw Trump’s face and message blasted across the screen.
This digital campaign ad structure he has implemented has proven to be effective previously, and if other candidates aren’t willing to make the fiscal requirements for an equal amount of online presence it could shift the election.
