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

My late father was a small businessman.  If his customers had done what Trump did, my dad would never have made it.  So, I take this personally.

He says he’s a businessman, and this is what businessmen do. Well, CNN pointed out that no major company has filed Chapter 11 more often in the last 30 years than Trump’s casinos.  So no, this is not normal behavior.  There are great business people here in Ohio, in America – brilliant, hardworking men and women who care about their workers and the people they do business with, and they want to build something that lasts.  They’re decent.  They’re honest.  They’re patriots.  Some might even make fine presidents.  And they would never dream of acting the way Donald Trump does.

In America, we don’t begrudge people being successful – but we know they shouldn’t do it by destroying other people’s dreams. And so, if I were not running against him for president, I would be saying exactly the same thing.

We cannot put a person like this, with all his empty promises, in a position of power over our lives.

We can’t let him bankrupt America like we are one of his failed casinos.  We can’t let him roll the dice with our children’s futures.

Leading an economy as large and complex as ours, creating growth that is strong, fair and lasting is about as hard a job as there is.  It takes patience and clear thinking, a willingness to work across party lines, to level with the American people and it takes really caring about whether working families will be better off because of what we do.

Think of FDR leading us out of the Great Depression.  Imagine all the work that required – all the learning and patience, all the hard calls, day after day, for years.  But he steered us right.  And we emerged stronger and better positioned to build the greatest middle class in history and lead the world toward peace and prosperity.

Or think of President Obama in 2009 – newly elected, confronting the greatest economic crisis of our lifetimes. He had nothing to do with creating it. It landed in his lap, and he had to be focused, and he had to return to basics, to get us moving again. He fought for the Recovery Act to get people working, he passed Wall Street reforms and relief for homeowners, and he saved the auto industry.  And today, we are on a surer footing, ready to seize tomorrow.

Now just imagine if you can, Donald Trump sitting in the Oval Office the next time America faces a crisis. Imagine him being in charge when your jobs and savings are at stake.  Is this who you want to lead us in an emergency?  Someone thin-skinned and quick to anger, who’d likely be on Twitter attacking reporters or bringing the whole regulatory system down on his critics, when he should be focused on fixing what’s wrong?

Would he even know what to do?

Now, I have a lot of faith that the American people will make the right decision.  Making Donald Trump our President would undo much of the progress we’ve made, and put our economy at risk.

And beyond that – this election will say something about who we are as a people.  Donald Trump believes in the worst of us. He thinks we’re fearful, not confident. That we favor division, not unity; walls, not bridges; and yesterday, not tomorrow.  He thinks the only way forward is to go back to a past prosperity that left a lot of people out.

In fact, the only way forward is forward – toward a 21st-century version of the American dream, with a modern economy and a shared prosperity where no one’s left out or left behind.

I believe in an America always moving toward the future.  So, if you believe, as I do, in an America that values hard work, treats people with dignity, offers everyone the chance to live their dreams, cares for those in need, well the formula for America’s success has always been that we’re stronger together. And we need to remember that now, and recommit ourselves to making that ideal real in our time.

That’s how we will build an economy to make sure that it does work for everyone and to make our families and our communities stronger. We’ll make sure, in our country, no one gets left behind.

So let’s carry that message all across America.  Let’s fight hard lets win in November.  And then let’s get to work my friends, let’s make America what we know it can be. Thank you all very much.”
