Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will speak in Detroit, Michigan this morning, where he will be discussing his plan for the economy.
Trump’s event will begin at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time, and it can be streamed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting. This is not a traditional rally and will not be open to the public.
The candidate will be addressing the Detroit Economic Club lunch, and he will be joined by his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Trump is hoping to steer the conversation away from some of his campaign’s recent controversies, talking instead about how his view on the economy differs from his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
In his remarks, which are to be delivered from a teleprompter rather than being improvised as is typical for a Trump event, the Republican candidate is expected to call for a temporary suspension of new financial regulations until the economy shows “significant growth,” according to Bloomberg.
He will also call for a repeal of the estate tax and for three income-tax brackets, compared to the seven currently in existence.
Trump is holding this event in Detroit in part because he hopes to use the city as an example of what he describes as President Obama’s failed policies, painting Hillary Clinton as a third term for Obama.
Most of Michigan’s top Republicans will not be in attendance for the speech, including the state’s governor, Rick Snyder, according to M Live.
