Krauthammer: Trump gave 'classic Republican agenda' in economic speech

Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer said Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that he thought Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump handled his major economic speech “reasonably well.”

“He gave the classic Republican agenda on economics: cut taxes. I think every Republican would agree,” he said.

Trump gave a preview of his economic plans during his Detroit speech, but also spent a large amount of the time attacking the policies of his rival, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and attempted to paint her as a candidate of the past.

Krauthammer said what stood out to him is how strongly Trump reiterated his anti-trade stances.

“He's to the left of [Clinton] on trade and that leaves us with an election where there's nobody to defend trade,” said Krauthammer. “This is new in modern American political history.”
