"There's mourning in the Republican Party," the voiceover begins.

"Today, Senators and Congressmen are waking up to the reality that Donald Trump has broken their party.

"They praised his mistakes, instead of heeding the warnings, then blamed others to cover up their president's failures."

It then goes on to describe lawmakers as being concerned they will not win their bids for re-election while Trump is also running for President.

"With the economy in shambles, people across America are still unemployed, one of the worst economies in decades," it continues.

"This November, hundreds of Republicans are up for re-election and with their goodwill run out, many have given up hope.

"Republicans worry their re-elections won't survive Trump's presidency."

Looping back to the mourning theme, it concludes: "There's mourning in the Republican Party, and under the leadership of Donald Trump their party is weak and scared and powerless.

"And now, many are asking: If we have another four years of Donald Trump, will there even be a Republican party?"

Newsweek has contacted the Trump campaign and the Lincoln Project for comment on the latest advert.

The new mourning-themed ad comes after the group, made up largely of former Republicans but who do not want to see another Trump term in the White House, released a previous attack on the President titled "Mourning in America" earlier this year.

This highlighted American deaths due to COVID-19, a point the group has continued to target the president over.

The title was a reworking of an ad from former Republican President Ronald Reagan's successful 1984 re-election campaign "Morning in America." In this, it was said under his leadership the country was "prouder, and stronger, and better."

Trump previously lashed out at this branding members of The Lincoln Project "loser types."

"A group of RINO [Republican in name only] Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago, have copied (no imagination) the concept of an ad from Ronald Reagan, 'Morning in America', doing everything possible to get even for all of their many failures," Trump tweeted, in response to the "Mourning in America" ad.

He added that he felt "their so-called Lincoln Project is a disgrace to Honest Abe."

The Lincoln Project has frequently used videos and messaging on social media to criticize Trump, insisting it will continue doing so. The group describes its mission as being to "defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box."

It has gained a major following, surpassing the GOP's official account in terms of Twitter followers.
