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.

    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.”
