DETROIT (WWJ/AP) — Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made an appearance before a big crowd at Detroit’s Eastern Market on Monday afternoon, as some polls show her lead over opponent Donald Trump is shrinking in the state.
Clinton compared herself to Trump, saying she is well prepared and he is not. She spoke about many issues including the economy, saying she understands some people’s anger over the country’s financial struggles in recent years.READ MORE: Science of Weather: Sea Life Michigan Turtles
“I learned a long time ago from my late mother, anger is not a plan,” Clinton said to the crowd of thousands. “Be angry, vent about it and then roll up your sleeves and get to work.”
A recent poll from the Detroit Free Press shows Clinton’s lead in Michigan could be as small a four points heading into the last days before the election.
“We have three big challenges — number one, we have got to get the economy working for everyone not just those at the top, number two, we’ve got to keep our country safe and we have to work with our allies to lead the world with strength and intelligence toward peace and prosperity, and number three, we’ve got to bring our country together,” Clinton explained.
She also spoke about the auto industry, saying Trump would have let the American car companies go bankrupt.READ MORE: Motown Museum Set To Reopen This Weekend With Expansion Project Near Completion
“It’s important for us to recognize that when I talk about getting the economy to work for everybody that means I want the biggest jobs program since World War II — infrastructure, advanced manufacturing, clean renewable energy technology,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s shrunken lead has given Trump’s campaign fresh hope as he looks for a breakthrough before time runs out. That means zeroing in on questions about Clinton’s trustworthiness and a new FBI review of an aide’s emails, attacks aimed at appealing to moderate Republicans and independents.
On Thursday, Trump warned voters that never-ending investigations will prevent his Democratic opponent from governing effectively, speaking directly to voters who may be reluctant Trump supporter but are also repelled by the possible return to Washington of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
