A leading super PAC backing Hillary Clinton for president released an ad on June 23, 2016 targeting Donald Trump's portrayal of reporter Serge Kovaleski who has a disability.

The ad produced by Priorities USA features a 17yr old teen with a disability named Dante who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on his spine when he was one year old.

In the ad, Dante shares his thoughts on Trump's mockery of reporter Serge Kovaleski (photo) from The New York Times with a physical handicap at a rally in South Carolina last November, and it shows a clip of Trump imitating him.

The 30 second ad is also part of a multi-million dollar "Stop Trump/Stop Hate" campaign.
