The Daily Beast reported Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising vehicle for the president’s campaign and the Republican National committee, run the ads on Trump’s Facebook page.

“I want to be able to show all Republican Senators a list of the many American voters that will NOT be happy if the wall isn’t built,” an ad posted several times reads. “I need YOUR NAME on the list. Sign our Official Petition to the Senate now!”

The group has run about 11,000 ads specifically targeting Senate Republicans, the Daily Beast reported, citing Facebook advertising data.

Two sets of ads ran this week exclusively targeting men, according to Daily Beast.

A Trump campaign spokesperson told The Hill on Saturday that the ad was intended for Republican senators to “appreciate the level of support for border security so they ultimately stand with the President and not Chuck SchumerChuck SchumerOvernight Health Care: US showing signs of retreat in battle against COVID-19 | Regeneron begins clinical trials of potential coronavirus antibody treatment | CMS warns nursing homes against seizing residents’ stimulus checks Schumer requests briefing with White House coronavirus task force as cases rise Schumer on Trump’s tweet about 75-year-old protester: He ‘should go back to hiding in the bunker’ MORE on this critical vote.” 

The ads come as President Trump has said he would not sign a bill that does not provide funding for border security. Building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was one of his key campaign promises in 2016. 

House Republicans passed a short-term funding bill Thursday that included more than $5 billion for the border. The Senate was considering the bill on Friday. 

Failure to clinch a deal by midnight on Friday would lead to a partial government shutdown.
