“So let’s take a look at what he did for his businesses: He’s written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end at chapter 11”, she says in an allusion to the well-known section of the US bankruptcy code.
Trump responded on Twitter as Clinton delivered her address, writing in one tweet: “How can Hillary run the economy when she can’t even send emails without putting entire nation at risk?”
It seems that his best chance of winning hinges on the outcome of a Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into whether Mrs Clinton breached USA security laws when she sent emails from a home computer while Secretary of State between 2009 and 2013.
It alleged that she laundered money to Bill Clinton through Laureate Education, while he was an honorary chairman of the group. “He’s proud of it”, Clinton said. “I made a fortune off of debt, will fix U.S”. Suggesting the United States could default on its debt could cause a “global panic”, she added.
Clinton’s address in OH sought to define Trump on the economy in a similar manner in which she tried to undercut his foreign policy credentials earlier this month.
She says economists of all political ideologies agree that “Trump’s ideas would be disastrous”. She is citing opposition to his candidacy from both 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and liberal Massachusetts Sen. Sullivan said she would lay out the “progressive economic agenda” she would embrace to help workers who have not yet benefited from the economic recovery. “Just like he should not have his finger on the button, he shouldn’t have his hands on our economy”, Clinton said.
These are not good numbers for Republicans. Almost $1 million went to purchase hats and other campaign merchandise, while another $838,000 was spent on travel. The presumptive 2016 nominee, Malek said, is facing a fundraising disadvantage that’s “huge and not widely understood”.
The unwillingness of traditional Republican donors to open their wallets has increased pressure on him in the last month and is believed to have underpinned his decision on Monday to fire divisive campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. By contrast, Clinton raised $26 million. The RNC will help Trump’s effort to get elected, but also helps fund congressional races.
Trump is making some moves this week aimed at steadying his campaign. He is vowing to match up to $2 million in contributions.
The billionaire businessman had largely funded his Republican presidential primary campaign with his own money, lending about $46 million over the past year.
The latest filings to the Federal Election Commission show Hillary Clinton’s campaign out-raised Donald Trump’s campaign by historic proportions in May. As a result, Trump’s campaign started June with $1.3 million in the bank; Clinton has $42 million.
I spent $55 million in the primaries.
The primary Super PAC supporting Trump, Great America PAC, reported raising $1.4 million in May – accounting for most of the $2.5 million the group has raised this year.
Trump has also purchased ad space on Facebook to make a similar appeal. Clinton was expected to discuss those proposed changes this week. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.
On NBC’s “Today”, Trump brushed aside concerns about fundraising, while saying he wished he had more support from his own party.
Together, Trump and the Republican National Committee brought in about $18.6 million in May, including another loan from the candidate. “In many ways Clinton is moving to turn the tables on him right now”.
Asked about this Tuesday, Trump that “I understand money better than anybody and I understand it way better than Hillary”. “In some respects I get more support from the Democrats than the Republicans”.
The figures underscore the huge money advantage Clinton is hoping to enjoy leading into the November 8 election, one that could allow her a large staff and millions of dollars of television and digital ads in battleground states.
