Trump: I’ll run Amer­ica like my busi­ness; Clin­ton: Let’s not

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION + WORLD -

His pres­i­den­tial dreams in­creas­ingly in ques­tion, Don­ald Trump pushed his busi­ness em­pire to the cen­ter of his po­lit­i­cal cam­paign Wed­nes­day. Tak­ing a break from bat­tle­ground states, he made the case at his new­est ho­tel that all Amer­i­cans should look to his cor­po­rate record for ev­i­dence of how well he’d run the coun­try.

Hil­lary Clin­ton agreed, but not the way he meant it. She used cam­paign events in Florida to at­tack the GOP nom­i­nee for hav­ing “stiffed American work­ers,” say­ing he built his em­pire with Chi­nese-man­u­fac­tured steel, over­seas prod­ucts and la­bor from im­mi­grants in the coun­try il­le­gally. “Don­ald Trump is the poster boy for ev­ery­thing wrong with our econ­omy,” she told sev­eral thou­sand sup­port­ers in Tampa, Florida. “He re­fuses to pay work­ers and con­trac­tors.”

Trump’s po­lit­i­cal as­pi­ra­tions have long been deeply in­ter­twined with pro­mot­ing his cor­po­rate goals.
