Hillary Clinton's campaign has turned to the young girl featured in the iconic 1964 "Daisy" ad in order to question Donald Trump's ability to handle nuclear weapons.
A new ad out Monday -- which features Monique Luiz, the same actress who at age three played "Daisy" in the ad for Lyndon B. Johnson's campaign -- is part of the campaign's closing argument against the Republican Party's presidential nominee. The campaign hopes to cast Trump as too reckless and unhinged to be trusted with the country's nuclear arsenal.
"This was me in 1964," Luiz says as video from the iconic ad, which features a young girl with flowers while a countdown to a nuclear warhead launch echoes in the background, plays. "The fear of nuclear war that we had as children, I never thought our children would ever have to deal with that again. And to see that coming forward in this election is really scary."
