Trump touts economic plan, attacks Clinton at Manchester, N.H. rally

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was in New Hampshire Thursday, where he spoke about his economic plans and continued his attacks on opponent Hillary Clinton.

Trump was introduced in Manchester by former rival Dr. Ben Carson, who said Trump’s economic policies would be good for minorities and provide jobs for everyone.

Trump criticized Clinton for her email problems, comparing it to former President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal. Trump claimed Hillary’s email problems were caused by her needing to cover up what was happening at the Clinton Foundation.

Trump, who is trailing in the polls, says that revelations that many donors to the Clinton family foundation met with as secretary of state represents “one of the most shocking scandals in American political history.”

Trump also defended his supporters from claims that they are racist. “People who want their laws enforced and respected, and who want their border secured, are not racists,” said Trump, who called his supporters “decent American citizens.”

And he says that, “People who speak out against radical Islam, and who warn about refugees, are not Islamophobes.”
