Trump, Clinton tie in their ‘beauty boxes’ as Trump’s campaign pledges to boost manufacturing
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have pledged to boost jobs and the economy in their first debate.
Trump will speak on the economy at 2 p.m.
ET on Thursday.
Clinton will speak at 8 p., and both are scheduled to make the case for their party’s economic policies.
In the last debate, Clinton won more than 60% of the vote.
Trump won just 31%.
The former secretary of state and her husband Bill Clinton are expected to spend the evening arguing about foreign policy and national security, with Trump expected to focus on her foreign policy record.
Clinton also will make the argument that she is the only candidate who has worked to build a stronger economy, saying she has “never taken a job at a company that wasn’t a good one.”
But Trump will also make the first major foray into policy, saying he will work to make manufacturing and exports more competitive and to rein in the influence of corporations.
“Our country needs manufacturing,” Trump will say.
“It needs jobs, and it needs a strong economy.”
