Hillary for America tells Ohio voters that Trump is bad for economy

In a major speech in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton explained how Donald Trump would endanger the American and global economies as president, saying, “Just as he shouldn’t have his finger on the button, he shouldn’t have his hands on our economy.” Clinton laid out the broad consensus that Trump’s economic proposals, if enacted, could lead to another recession and cost the U.S. millions of jobs, specifically citing a new report by one of John McCain’s former economic advisers, Mark Zandi, which finds that a Trump presidency could lead to 3.5 million lost jobs. Pointing to Trump’s disastrous business record as an example of how he would damage the economy, Clinton said, “We can’t let him bankrupt America like we’re one of his failed casinos. We can’t let him roll the dice with our children’s futures.”

Clinton will deliver a second major speech on the economy on Wednesday in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she will lay out her vision for growing together and building an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.

Below is a transcript of Clinton’s remarks in Columbus June 21:

“Thank you! Wow, thank you! Thank you! Thank you, thank you so much. Thank you all. Well thank you, it is wonderful to be back here in Columbus.

I want, I want to thank Whitney for not just her wonderful introduction but for all the hard work that she has done to build her career and the very strong endorsement she has given to Fort Hayes Career Center. Everyone associated with Fort Hayes, I want to thank you. This is exactly how we will create more good jobs with more opportunities for more people and it’s exciting to be here in a place that does just that.

I want to thank Governor Ted Strickland, who I hope is soon to be Senator Ted Strickland! Chairman David Pepper of the Ohio Democratic Party, Zach Klein, President of the Columbus City Council, John O’Grady, President of Franklin County Court of Commissioners, and all of you for being here with me.

I have to say I am pretty thrilled to be here for the first time speaking to any group like this as a grandmother of two now. It was an exciting weekend. Chelsea and Marc had a little boy and we are just truly over the moon. I have to confess, I’ve talked so much about being a grandmother, now I’m sure going to be talking doubly about being a grandmother. New stories to tell.

It’s always great to be back in Ohio, and I want to talk about a challenge that Ohio families know well – growing our economy and making it work for everyone, not just those at the top.

For more then a year now, I have been listening to Americans across our country. You’ve told me how the recession hit your communities – how jobs dried up, home values sank, and savings vanished. And I have seen how hard you’ve worked to get back on your feet.

If we’ve learned anything about the economy over the past 20 years, it’s that a President’s economic decisions have real consequences for families.  President Obama was handed the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Thanks to his leadership – and the hard work and resilience of the American people – we have seen more than 14 million private sector jobs created over the last six and a half years. And here in Ohio, the auto industry has made a strong comeback.

And how appropriate as we are here in the area where students learn about autos, learn about how they are made and how they work.
