After the New York Times published Donald Trump’s, Hillary Clinton’s campaign put out a statement calling the story a “bombshell.”
In Toledo, Ohio, on Monday, Clinton’s going to lump the Trump organization in with companies like Wells Fargo or the maker of the EpiPen -- companies that she and her campaign argue are playing by a different set of rules when it comes to doing business or paying taxes, reports CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes.
“He doesn’t care about the people who lost millions of dollars in all of his bankruptcies. He cares about Donald,” Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said.
Clinton supporters like McCaskill argued Sunday that Trump’s taxes reveal, as
the campaign put it, “the colossal nature of Donald Trump’s past business
Clinton herself didn’t bring it up during . She met with a group of young African-American men and visited a black church, two weeks after a police shooting there caused days of protests.
“Like every grandmother, I worry about the safety and security of my grandchildren. But my worries are not the same as black grandmothers,” Clinton said.
Twenty-two percent of voters in North Carolina are black. It’s one of a number of battleground states where Clinton is hoping for a large turnout of black voters to win. She will also need to energize young, college-educated voters, a block that supported Bernie Sanders during the primary.
“They’re children of the Great Recession and they are living in their
parents’ basement,” Clinton said in a recording that surfaced over the weekend.
It was from a fundraiser during the peak of her battle against Sanders where
she said the struggle for millennials to find good jobs was part of what made
his political revolution so appealing.
“We should try to do the best we can not to be a wet blanket on idealism,” Clinton said in the recording.
The leak prompted Trump to tweet “Crooked H is nasty to Sanders supporters
behind closed doors.”
“I took it exactly the opposite way,” Sanders said.
Sanders said he disagrees with Clinton on some things, but not on this.
“What she was saying there is absolutely correct,” Sanders said.
Sanders will be campaigning for Clinton in Iowa and Minnesota this week. President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will campaign for her in Florida. But the biggest battleground state news might be in Ohio, where Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, also known as King James, the state’s most famous athlete, has written an op-ed endorsing Clinton.
