FLINT (WWJ/AP) — Former President Bill Clinton will campaign for his wife, Hillary, in Michigan on Monday.
The visit comes just one week before the state’s October 11 deadline to register to vote. President Clinton was originally scheduled to stop at public events in Saginaw, Flint and Rochester Hills, but canceled the Rochester Hills stop on Sunday.
The event at the Dow Event Center Atrium in Saginaw starts at 1:15 p.m., and a rally at the University of Michigan Flint planned for 3:15 p.m.
He is expected to lay out the high stakes of November’s election for working families and talk with Michiganders about Hillary’s plans to “build an economy that works for everyone.”
President Clinton was last in Michigan on September 5 and took place in Detroit’s annual Labor Day Parade. He said that when the country last adopted Republican policies that cut taxes on the rich and raised the debt, “it didn’t work out too well for us.”
Bill Clinton says his wife’s economic plan would create 10.5 million jobs while Trump’s would cut 3.5 million jobs. He is urging union members to support Hillary Clinton “because she has the best ideas.”
He questions Trump’s leadership and says his visit last week to Mexico “damaged America in every serious country in the world.” He says Trump played nice only to return home “to dump on them” for his own political benefit.
