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

Now Donald Trump makes big threats, but he has no serious plan to encourage manufacturing, innovation or job creation in America.

And there’s a difference between getting tough on trade, and recklessly starting trade wars. The last time we opted for Trump-style isolationism, it made the Great Depression longer and more painful.

Interestingly, Trump’s own products are made in a lot of countries that aren’t named America.  Trump ties are made in China; Trump suits, in Mexico; Trump furniture, in Turkey; Trump picture frames in India; and Trump barware in Slovenia.  And I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

And I’d love him to explain how all that fits with his talk about America First.

I honestly believe that the difference between us is not just about policy.  We have fundamentally different views of whether America is strong or weak.  See I believe in the ingenuity and productivity of our workers.  I know we can sell our products to the 95 percent of global consumers who live outside of our country.  On the other hand, Donald Trump never misses a chance to say that Americans, he’s talking about us, to say that Americans are losers and the rest of the world is laughing at us.  Just the other day, he told a crowd that America is – quote – ‘not going to survive.’ I do not know what he is talking about. I went to 112 countries as your Secretary of state and what I say is envy, envy for our strength, our values, our diversity, the future we are making together – and I just can’t imagine how someone running for President of the United States could ever think that that is true.

I do understand how frustrated, fearful, and even angry many people are, especially if you’re underemployed or making a lot less than you used to, or worried that your kids or your grandkids won’t have the kind of good, solid middle class life that you did.  And we haven’t done enough to invest in our communities and in our people, to make sure there are enough good jobs with rising incomes to create that good future for all of us.

The answer is to do that – to bring them along on America’s ride to a prosperity that we all can share.  Not try to turn the clock back, pretend we can’t compete and decrease the jobs of the future.

But those are his plans for the economy.
