JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is out with his first radio ads.

The 60-second spots will be airing in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina through the end of the month.

In one for Iowa voters, Trump speaks about campaign themes including trade, defense and immigration.

He says his opponents have no experience in creating jobs or negotiating. And he says if Iowans vote for him, they will not be disappointed.

The other ad features a woman promoting Trump's biography and policy plans, including his vow to build a wall along the southern border and make Mexico pay for it.

The ads are Trump's first paid advertising of the campaign.

He's spending $300,000 to air them.
