Clinton Blasts Trump Proposals in Economic Speech
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blasted opponent Donald Trump’s tax and trade proposals as she laid out her own economic plan Thursday.
Clinton spoke at an automotive and defense industry factory near the Midwestern city of Detroit, Michigan.
Trump had outlined his economic policies earlier on Monday during a speech in Detroit. He also criticized Clinton’s economic plan. Trump said Clinton would raise taxes and continue heavy government regulation on businesses.
In her speech, Clinton said Trump only spoke of “failure, poverty and crime” when he brought up economic conditions in the state. She also condemned his remarks that America is becoming a third world country.
“But clearly he doesn’t know the people of Michigan. He doesn’t see the businesses and the labor unions, the local governments, the clergy - coming together every single day to make things better.”
She said Trump has offered “no credible plans” to address the problems faced by American working families.
“He wants America to work for him and his friends at the expense of everyone else.”
She said Trump has ignored many issues that have been a focus of her campaign. These include proposals to help students refinance debt, reduce prescription drug costs, promote clean energy, and fight poverty and racism in communities of color.
Clinton blasts “outlandish Trumpian ideas”
Clinton said Trump only offers “a more extreme version of the failed theory of trickle-down economics - with his own addition of outlandish Trumpian ideas that even Republicans reject.”
The Democratic candidate addressed some of Trump’s main campaign issues, including his opposition to international trade agreements.
Clinton said she agrees that past administrations sometimes portrayed trade deals as being better than they turned out to be. Some led to factory closures and job losses, she said.
“It is also true that China and other countries have gamed the system for too long.”
She said cutting the U.S. off from the rest of the world, which she said Trump proposed, would not solve the problems. Clinton added, “The answer is to finally make trade work for us, not against us.”
She pledged to stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Officials from 12 countries negotiated the TPP, which is favored by U.S. President Barack Obama. Those countries control 40 percent of the world economy.
