BOTH SPEAK ON THE ECONOMY
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 13, 2016) — On Saturday evening, Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump is campaigning at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, while Democrat vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine spoke about the economy in Manchester, NH earlier in the day.
Trump derided the Democrats’ tax plan, which he said is “all you need in Connecticut: higher taxes” to an enthusiastic audience.
Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton does not appear to be campaigning today.
Trump also decried the health care reform law known as Obamacare and praised The Washington Post, which he banned from officially covering his events in June, for recent coverage of Clinton’s time in the U.S. Senate.
During his address, Trump said that he “loves Connecticut” and America. One protester was ejected at approximately 8:30 p.m.
At 8:48, Trump asked that another protester who he said “looks just like Hillary” be removed from the assembly.
At 9:05, Trump said that Clinton was at that moment “home sleeping.”
