In the first of three debates before the November elections, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton battled over who would make the best commander-in-chief, as Trump said Clinton did not have the “stamina” to be President, while Clinton assailed Trump’s economic plans, saying they would be a boon to the wealthy.
“It’s trickle-down economics all over again,” Clinton said in a familiar refrain about Republican economic policies, which she labeled, “Trumped-Up, Trickle-Down.”
Trump responded by accusing Clinton of looking to do one thing – increase taxes.
“You’re going to raise taxes big league,” Trump said, as he repeatedly tried to portray Clinton as the candidate of the status quo – essentially the incumbent – arguing she’s responsible for the country going in the wrong direction.
“She’s been doing this for thirty years,” Trump said, “and now you’re just starting to think of solutions.”
