Hillary Clinton Slams Trump Tax Plan in Ohio



    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaks at a campaign rally at John Marshall High School in Cleveland, Ohio, on Aug. 17, 2016.

    Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump Wednesday over his tax plan, which the Democratic presidential nominee says would help the wealthy at the expense of investments in education, infrastructure and healthcare.

    Two days after Donald Trump was in Ohio to lay out his foreign policy plan, Clinton touted her economic proposal at Marshall High School in Cleveland and criticized Trump’s plan to repeal the estate tax because the $4 billion that the Republican nominee would receive could be put to better use helping Ohioans.

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)

    Clinton's speech is a part of a coordinated effort by her campaign in key battleground states to emphasize how tax breaks for the wealthy proposed by Trump “would come at great cost to much-needed investments in infrastructure, education, health care, and other priorities.”
