The two candidates discussed, or at least made a stab at discussing the state of the American economy. Here they went:
Trump: I want to make this nation Great Again, I want to make certain that no country robs us of what we are due. When I am president, I will make great deals, fantastic deals that will make this country great again. Put me in a room with the Chinks, I will have them leave the room naked. I am a brilliant negotiator, wonderful,with my brains, this country will see millions and millions of jobs. You folks in Ohio and in Pennsylvania, we will bring back coal mining jobs, we will get our closed factories working again. HOW? I am a great deal maker, a fantastic deal maker, I can out smart any Chinese or Russian or anyone, just turn me loose on the Saudis, they will be sending oil to us and we will not pay a penny! That is my economic plan.
Hillary Clinton: I want to invest in education, I want to invest in job training, I want to rebuild our infrastructure and create millions of jobs. We need technical training in schools, we need linkage between jobs and education. I want to tax the wealthy to pay for these new economic developments. We need technological development to create 21st century jobs.
