Hillary Clinton, making her first appearance in northwest Ohio today at the Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza, blasted her opponent for dodging federal taxes after losing nearly a $1 billion in 1995.
"Trump's campaign is bragging that not paying taxes makes him a genius," Mrs. Clinton said. "What kind of genius loses $1 billion in a single year?"
The Democrat seeking to succeed President Obama promised to help American's bottom line while she criticized Mr. Trump for supporting a tax plan that would help himself and hike taxes on the middle class.
"Trump’s plan would cut his own taxes even more…his plan would actually raise taxes for millions of middle-class families," she said.
Mrs. Clinton's speech focused on her plan to help the middle class "I want to focus on what are called kitchen table issues, you know hat keeps you up at night," she said. "We've got to create more great jobs with rising incomes. That means we have to have good schools in every ZIP code."
