Democrat Hillary Clinton will target Donald Trump’s business record on Tuesday, casting the presumptive Republican nominee as self-interested and shady in an effort to undercut one of the central arguments of his campaign.
The former senator secretary of state plans to deliver a pointed critique of her Republican rival’s economic policies and his work in the private sector, broadening her argument that Trump is temperamentally unfit for the White House, Clinton campaign advisers said.
Tuesday’s address in Columbus, Ohio, will build on Clinton’s recent foreign-policy speech in which she used a compilation of Trump’s own words to suggest that he is uninformed and even dangerous.
“It really comes down to being able to show that every time Trump had an opportunity to get something for himself at the expense of someone else, he took it, in spades,” said Jake Sullivan, the Clinton campaign’s policy chief.
The presumptive GOP nominee is also poised to punch back at his rival’s characterization of him, saying in an interview that he is a “great businessman” and that Clinton is a “total disaster.”
