Trump slams Clinton's trade policies in speech

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Donald Trump is suggesting that "our country lost its way" when it began to prioritize globalism over a focus on the United States' own interests.

Speaking Wednesday at one of his Manhattan hotels, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee says that has "devastated" the American middle class. He says that's largely due to trade policies enacted under President Bill Clinton's administration.

Trump says the trade policies were "to the detriment of the American worker," and he's linking his general election opponent, Hillary Clinton, to her husband's policies.

He claimed that Hillary Clinton "sold out our workers" and "she gets rich by making you poor."

He also played off Clinton's "I'm with her" campaign slogan, by declaring: "I'm with you, the American people."
