Hillary Clinton touts jobs plan in Warren
WARREN, Mich. (WJBK) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaking at Futuramic Tool & Engineering in Warren Thursday afternoon, touting that her jobs plan is the right choice for American workers.
The goal of her speech Thursday afternoon was to play up her focus on job development, public works projects and tax policy while trying to undercut the Republican nominee's approach. Clinton was not expected to come out with any major new policies during her remarks.
You can see a full recap of her speech tonight on FOX 2 News beginning at 5 p.m. You can rewatch her remarks here, too.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was in town earlier this week and spoke to the Detroit Economic's Club.
His remarks, though, were quickly eclipsed by the latest in a series of controversial statements which Trump has spent much of the week trying to clarify. Clinton is trying to taking advantage of the turmoil in the Trump campaign, pitching herself to independents and moderate Republicans, and building on her momentum after party conventions.
Clinton intended to try to make the case that Trump's agenda would benefit him and his wealthy friends, and to characterize his plans as an update of "trickle-down economics," according to her campaign.
Also look for Clinton to argue that Trump's drive to cut taxes on certain business income would benefit many of his companies.
