Clinton: GOP Wants To Go Back To ‘Trickle-Down Economics’
Hillary Clinton appeared at a rally in Wisconsin Monday night, and accused the GOP of wanting to take America back to an arguably failed Reagan-era economic policy.
“[Donald Trump and the GOP] all want to take us back to trickle-down economics,” the former Secretary of State said.
“The most important economic issues in this campaign is ensuring we have a Democrat in the White House come next January,” she said in a reference to Bernie Sanders’s self-proclaimed Democratic Socialism.
The Hill reports:
Clinton chided Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for their controversial remarks regarding Muslims. Both GOP hopefuls have called for monitoring Muslim neighborhoods after the terrorist attacks in Brussels. Trump has repeatedly called for banning Muslims from entering the United States.
The former secretary of State also knocked Trump for questioning America’s contributions to NATO; he has called the treaty organization “obsolete.”
“That does not make him sound strong,” Clinton said. “It makes him sound like he is in over his head.”
Looking ahead to the April 19 primary, Clinton made a pitch to New Yorkers. She expressed the difficulty of leaving the Senate to go serve as President Obama’s secretary of State. Polling shows her leading by double digits in the Empire State.
“It was a really hard decision for me to leave the Senate,” Clinton said. “I adored being your senator. It was the greatest honor imaginable.”
Clinton and Sanders are in a tight battle in the Badger State. The Vermont senator leads her by about 2 points in the RealClearPolitics average and in a new poll released Monday, Sanders led Clinton by 8 points.
