Hillary Clinton is opening her general election campaign by casting herself as a uniting force against the divisiveness of GOP rival Donald Trump.

The first general election ad released by her campaign splices clips of Trump threatening protesters and mocking a disabled reporter with scenes of Clinton visiting factories, greeting diverse groups of voters and stepping off a plane as secretary of state.

She ends the one-minute spot saying: “What kind of America do we want to be? Dangerously divided or strong and united? I believe we are always stronger together.”

Trump responded Sunday on Twitter: “Clinton made a false ad about me where I was imitating a reporter GROVELING after he changed his story. I would NEVER mock disabled. Shame!”

Aides say Clinton will make a similar argument on Monday in Cleveland before heading to Pittsburgh and Wisconsin for campaign events. The ad, titled “Who We Are,” will air in battleground states starting on Thursday.
