Donald Trump makes a major address on the economy Monday afternoon at the Detroit Economic Club:
DONALD TRUMP: The State of New York has already lived through Hillary Clintonâ€™s failed leadership. The Washington Post just published a devastating article on Hillary Clintonâ€™s broken promises. She pledged 200,000 jobs for upstate New York as Senator. But what happened? The Washington Post writes, and I quote: â€śupstate job growth stagnated overall during her tenure, with manufacturing jobs plunging nearly 25 percentâ€¦the former first lady was unable to pass big ticket legislationâ€¦ Many promised jobs never materialized and others migrated to other states as she turned to her first presidential runâ€¦data shows that upstate actually lost jobs during Clintonâ€™s first term.
Compare that to my record. In a recent New York Post article by Steve Cuozzo, â€śHow Donald Trump Helped Save New York City,â€ť the paper writes that I â€“ and this is a direct quote â€“ â€śwaded into a landscape of empty Fifth Avenue storefronts, the dust-bowl mugging ground that was Central Park and a Wall Street area seemingly on its last legs as companies moved outâ€¦almost by force of will â€” [he] rode to the rescue. Expressing rare faith in the future, he was instrumental in kick-starting the regeneration of neighborhoods and landmarks almost given up for dead.
This is what I want to do for our country â€“ I want to jumpstart America.
