In continuing coverage of the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump addressed the state of America’s economy.

The presumptive democratic nominee says Trump’s business skills would create bad news for small businesses and working families.

Trump says he understands debt, has made a fortune on it, and will fix America.

In a recent poll, 51% of people say Trump would do a better job turning the economy around.

But Clinton’s campaign is trying to change that idea, creating a new focusing on Trump’s unsuccessful business ventures.

The presidential candidates even went after each other about how they raise funds.

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton is using shady tactics to raise campaign funds, tweeting:

While Clinton hit the billionaire, saying his economic plan would mean another recession for America.

The latest numbers show Trump and the Republican National Committee raised nearly $19 million in May.

Clinton and the Democratic National Committee brought in more than double that.

According to the most recent poll, Clinton is leading Trump 47 % to 42%.
