Clinton Goes on the Attack in Ohio: Trump Could 'Bankrupt the Country'

Hillary Clinton 13

The race for the White House is heating up more every day. In a hard-hitting speech in the crucial swing state of Ohio Tuesday, Hillary Clinton blasted Donald Trump's economic policies.

The former state secretary called Trump's economic proposals dangerous and warned that he could "bankrupt the country" if elected president.

She questioned Trump's temperament to guide the economy and repeatedly pointed to his business record, including bankruptcies, as evidence of how he would treat small businesses and working families.

"Just like he should not have his finger on the button, he should not have his finger on the economy," she said. "He's written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end with Chapter 11."

Trump shot back, saying he knows how to use debt in business.

"Okay, so what I've done is I've used, brilliantly, the laws of the country – and not personally, just corporate[ly]," he said. "And if you look at people like myself that are [at] the highest levels of business, they use, many of them have done it many, many times."

In a tweet, he said, "Crooked Hillary refuses to say that she will be raising taxes beyond belief! She will be a disaster for jobs and the economy."

Indeed the presumptive Democratic nominee does has problems of her own.

Russian hackers are believed to have breached the computers of the Clinton Foundation.

A hacker using the moniker "Guccifer 2.0" leaked documents taken from the Democratic National Convention during a hack last week.

Bloomberg News reports the attacks on the Clinton Foundation's network, as well as those of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, compound concerns about her digital security. The news comes as the FBI continues to investigate her use of a personal email server while she was secretary of state.

Meanwhile, Trump is promising even more of a full assault on Clinton in a speech Wednesday.
