Hillary Clinton is suddenly sounding a lot like Donald Trump on her latest policy fix: trade.
Since the beginning of the presidential election, Trump has slammed U.S. trade deals with Mexico and South Korea as “horrible” and “disastrous.” He wants to fix them by placing strong tariffs on goods coming into the U.S. from foreign countries that don’t play fair.
And what do you know: Clinton says she’s ready to impose tariffs too. And in addition to tariffs, she promised to ramp up the U.S. team that monitors trade.
Here’s her statement from the rally in Warren, Michigan where she gave a speech to a crowd at a manufacturing plant:
“When countries break the rules, we won’t hesitate to impose targeted tariffs. China and other countries have gamed the system for too long. I’m going to ramp up enforcement by appointing a new chief trade prosecutor, tripling the number of enforcement officers.”
