American Future Fund, a political nonprofit that does not disclose its donors, is airing a pair of new ads featuring veterans speaking out againstDonald J. Trump.

On Screen

The voice of a veteran, Lt. Col. Tom Hanton, tracks his slow march to the camera, an American flag hung vertically behind him. “When I heard Donald Trump insult my fellow prisoners of war from Vietnam by calling us losers, that was the most infuriating comment I think I’ve heard from a politician in my entire life,” he says.

Grainy footage of prisoner-of-war camps in North Vietnam flicker across the screen as Colonel Hanton says that Mr. Trump “would not have survived a P.O.W. experience,” and that he probably would have been “the first one to fold.”

A shadowy Mr. Trump, his head tilted back and his gaze downward, appears over a Boston Herald headline of “Con Man Trump” as Colonel Hanton begs the viewer to “learn about Donald Trump,” whom he calls a “phony.” He makes his final pitch directly to the camera: “Stop him now.”
