WATCH: Hillary Clinton talks jobs at Detroit Eastern Market stop


Another busy day in politics in metro Detroit as Hillary Clinton came to Eastern Market Friday.

The Democratic nominee for president brought with her another billionaire to help her defeat billionaire GOP candidate Donald Trump - Mark Cuban.

"What's happening Detroit," Cuban said.

NBA Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban warmed up the crowd, followed by Clinton who delivers a 30 min speech in Shed #3 of the Eastern Market.

"If I am honored to be your president I will get up every day in that White House and I will go to work for you," Clinton said.

And very early on in her remarks, Clinton went straight to her opponent Donald Trump.

"If Donald wins the election we'd have a president who wants to ban every Muslim in the world from coming," she said. "We would have a president who has said repeatedly that he thinks the lives of black people are all about crime and poverty and despair."

And for her stated challenges to tackle: no mention of the FBI investigation, she instead cited the importance of improving the economy and education.

"When I come back to Detroit which I will do, when I travel around Michigan, which I will do, I want you to say how it's going," Clinton said. "We came up with a plan that if you go to a public college or a university you will get free tuition if your family makes less than $125,000 a year."

Metro Detroiters in the audience liked what they heard.

"I liked when she talked about the university and colleges being affordable for children," said Heather Todd of Troy.

"When you compare her to Trump's curriculum vitae, his resume and his experience, I mean c'mon do we even need to ask," said Laura Isagholian of Dearborn Heights.
