Hillary to go after Trump’s economic agenda

Hillary Clinton is set to go after Donald Trump’s economic agenda, aiming to portray her rival’s approach as offering handouts for the rich that could imperil the economy.The goal of her speech on Thursday afternoon at manufacturing company in Warren, Michigan, was to play up her focus on job development, public works projects and tax policy while trying to undercut the celebrity businessman’s approach.
Trickle-down economicsShe intended to try to make the case that Trump’s agenda would benefit him and his wealthy friends, and to characterise his plans as an update of “trickle-down economics,” according to her campaign.
Trump outlined a revamped economic package during an appearance in Detroit on Monday, and Ms. Clinton attempted to draw contrasts when she spoke at a rally Wednesday in Des Moines, Iowa. She said that according to independent analysis “under my plans, we’ll create about 10.4 million new jobs. Under Donald Trump’s so-called plans, we will lose about three and a half million jobs.”
Trump has struggled to keep the focus on his economic proposal week after fresh controversy with his comments about the Second Amendment.
At a rally on Tuesday, he said there was no way people would be able to stop a President Clinton from stacking the Supreme Court with anti-gun justices, before adding, “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is I don’t know.”Clinton said it was one more example of words that could have “tremendous consequences.”
Clinton said the remark was a “casual inciting of violence” that shows Trump lacks the temperament to be commander in chief.
