WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton took aim at Donald Trump’s business record on Tuesday, making a strong case that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee would manage the U.S. economy as badly as he has done his many failed business ventures.
“He’s written a lot of books about business, but they all seem to end at Chapter 11,” Clinton said in a clear dig at Trump’s four corporate bankruptcies. “Just like he should not have his finger on the button, he should not have his hands on our economy.”
The former secretary of state, who was speaking at a rally in Ohio, argued that Trump’s vague economic plans would drive the nation into a recession.
“Liberals and conservatives say Trump’s ideas would be a disaster,” she said. “[Former Republican presidential nominee] Mitt Romney and [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren, economists on the right and the left and center, all agree: Trump would throw us back into recession.”
