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

Now, every major presidential candidate in the last four decades has shown the American people their taxes.  In fact, Donald actually told Mitt Romney to do it.  And he said that if he ever ran for President, he would release his returns.  My husband and I have released ours going back nearly 40 years.

And now Donald’s refusing.  You have to ask yourself, what’s he afraid of?  Maybe we will learn he hasn’t paid taxes on his huge income?  We know that happened for at least a few years – he paid nothing, or close to it.  Or maybe he isn’t as rich as he claims. Or that he hasn’t given away as much to charity as he brags about.

Whatever the reason, Americans deserve to know before you cast your votes this November.

And when it comes to other people’s taxes, Donald Trump’s got it all wrong. We need to do better by the middle class, not by the rich. And that’s why my plan will help working families with the costs of college, healthcare and childcare – the things that really stretch a family’s budget. That’s where our focus should be.

Now fourth, Donald Trump’s ideas about the economy and the world will cause millions of Americans to lose their jobs.

The Republican primary featured the Trump immigration plan: round up and deport more than 11 million people – almost all of whom are employed or are children going to school – then build a wall across our border and force Mexico to pay for it.

Now this policy is not only wrong headed and unachievable, it is really bad economics.  Kicking out 11 million immigrants would cost hundreds of billions of dollars, and it would shrink our economy significantly.  Some economists actually argue that just this policy alone would send us into a Trump Recession.

So instead of causing large-scale misery and shrinking our economy, we should pass sensible immigration reform with a path to citizenship.  Because the youth, the youth and diversity of our workforce is one of our greatest assets.  Most of the rest of the world that we compete with is aging, so by staying younger and fresher, with talents that can be put to work, we’re actually going to be in a stronger economic position in the next decades. We’ve always been a country where people born elsewhere could work hard, start businesses and contribute to our growth.  That makes us stronger and more prosperous.

And then there’s trade.  I believe we can compete and win in the global economy.  To do that, we should renegotiate deals that aren’t working for Americans, and reject any agreements – like the Trans-Pacific Partnership – that don’t meet my high bar for raising wages or creating good-paying jobs.  And I will be tough on trade enforcement, too. Because when China dumps cheap steel in our markets or unfairly manipulates its currency, we need to respond forcefully.

And at the same time, we need to invest more at home.  I have a ‘Make it in America’ plan to increase 21st century manufacturing and energy jobs in America.  We’re going to build on the great ideas of Senator Sherrod Brown, and invest $10 billion in manufacturing communities. I agree with Sherrod with the right investments and a level playing field, American workers will out-hustle and out-innovate anyone in the world.
