Kaine: Trump’s ‘Economic Plan Is Really a Trump-First Plan’

‘This tax plan basically helps him, and if he ever met his promise and he gave his tax returns to the American public like he said he would, we would see just how much his economic plan is really a Trump-first plan’

"The Trump plan is a different plan. It’s a 'You’re Fired' plan. And there’s two key elements to it. First, Donald Trump said, wages are too high. And both Donald Trump and Mike Pence think that we ought to eliminate the federal minimum wage. Mike Pence, when he was in Congress, voted against raising the minimum wage above $5.15. And he has been a one-man bulwark against minimum wage increases in Indiana. The second component is no more tax breaks for those at the very top. Trillions of dollars of tax breaks for those like Donald Trump. That’s exactly like what we did ten years ago and it put the economy into the deepest recession since the 1930s. Independent analysts say the Clinton plan would grow the economy by 10.5 million jobs. The Trump plan would cost 3.5 million jobs. And Donald Trump, why would he do this? Because his tax plan basically helps him, and if he ever met his promise and he gave his tax returns to the American public like he said he would, we would see just how much his economic plan is really a Trump-first plan."
