LIVE STREAM: Donald Trump Economic Speech From the Economic Club of New York

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will deliver a speech from the Economic Club of New York on Thursday.

Trump’s speech will begin at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time, and it can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.

The Republican candidate will also be joined at the event by his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence. In his speech, Trump will provide more clarity on his economic policies, according to CNN. He is also expected to take questions following his remarks.

Trump’s economic plan includes a variety of tax cuts, such as a reduction of the top corporate income tax from 35 percent to 15 percent. He also wants to cut the top tax rate for individuals from 39.6 percent to 33 percent. Under Trump’s plan, income tax brackets would be reduced from seven to three, according to the campaign’s website.

The new tax rates would be 33 percent, 25 percent and 12 percent. The top tax bracket starts at $200,000 a year for individuals and $400,000 a year for married couples.

Many questions have been raised about how Trump would pay for his proposed cuts. Analysts have concluded that Trump’s plan would cost the U.S. treasury about $3 trillion over the next ten years, according to Bloomberg.

In contrast, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has proposed increasing taxes on the rich, including a 4 percent surcharge on incomes higher than $4 million per year. She has also proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $12 an hour.
