..and Hillary readies economic attack on Trump
Hillary Clinton is fighting fire with fire, as she’ll soon give an address critical of Donald Trump’s economic policies.
The Donald has a speech planned for Monday that will address the Clintons’ ‘politics of personal enrichment,’ he has said.
The Clinton speech will be modeled after the successful foreign policy speech in San Diego, which boosted her appeal in California – a state that she easily won – and got her audience laughing as she quoted to them some of Trump’s lines.
Yesterday she previewed what she might say, though an aide told the Wall Street Journal she doesn’t plan to deliver the address until later this month.
‘While he may have some catchy sound bites, his statements on the economy are dangerously incoherent,’ Clinton told the paper.
‘They are deeply misguided, and they reflect an individual is temperamentally unfit to manage the American economy,’ Clinton added.
Trump has run his campaign on his business credentials, entering the race almost a year ago now, by telling the audience gathered at Trump Tower, ‘I’m really rich.’
He told the Des Moines Register that he was ‘the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far.’
‘Nobody’s every been more successful than me,’ he said at the time. ‘I’m the most successful person ever to run. Ross Perot isn’t successful like me. Romney – I have a Gucci store that’s worth more than Romney.’
In short, part of Trump’s major appeal is how he can apply his business acumen to fixing the economy.
Clinton will likely counter that by bringing up some of his zanier proposals and calling them laughable.
‘It’s not hard to see how a Trump presidency could actually lead to a serious global economic crisis,’ she told the Wall Street Journal.
The Democrat also brought up the civil lawsuit against Trump for his, as she called it, Trump University ‘scheme.’
The lawsuit, and Trump’s criticism of a Mexican-American judge, became a big political problem for the Republican presumptive nominee this week, as many in his own party suggested diminished support.
To hit Clinton back, Trump is drafting a ‘charge sheet,’ according to Politico, that he will unveil o Monday.
The Republican and former reality TV star has dredged up all sorts of scandals from the ’90s to throw at Clinton, including past incidences of her husband’s infidelity.
He’ll try to further damage the former secretary of state’s character, an area where she’s already vulnerable, as her likability numbers are nearly as bad as Trump’s and polls often find that voters find her untrustworthy.
Those close to Trump warn, however, that he should remain focused on more recent problems with Clinton’s records, instead of giving the ’90s a retrial.
‘If you want to talk about issues of character, you can talk about infidelity and the corruption scandals, but there are more here-and-now things, more contemporary to what we’re now discussing, that are where he’s going to focus,’ John Jay LaValle, a trump surrogate, told Politico.
‘If Mr. Trump stays focused on issues like Benghazi, the email scandal and to the extent that she ws so willing to compromise on national security,’ LaValle continued.
‘He’ll be able to make a credible case that she’s the one who would put the country in danger as commander-in-chief,’ he added.
