Donald Trump said Wednesday that he plans to “tell us everything” about how he plans fix the U.S. economy, in a speech to the Republican National Convention.
Trump, who has yet to unveil a specific plan to overhaul the nation’s economic system, is a former Republican presidential candidate and is scheduled to address the convention on Thursday.
He said during the speech that he wants to take advantage of every opportunity to fix America’s economy.
Trump spoke in a wide-ranging address at the RNC, detailing his plans to address what he called a “massive crisis” that has left many Americans without work, while millions of Americans have been forced to rely on food stamps and other government programs.
“There are no shortcuts to fixing our broken system, no one-size-fits-all solutions.
There are no excuses for not addressing our biggest challenges,” he said.”
Our economy and our nation must be rebuilt.
It must be fixed to the very highest standards, and I promise you, we will find the answers.”
He added that he will take a “bold, decisive and principled approach” to fixing the economy and called for Americans to join him in the effort.
Trump’s speech came a day after a report from the Center for Public Integrity that the Trump campaign is using a campaign contract to pay a $1.6 million settlement to a former employee who alleged that the campaign had retaliated against her for raising concerns about the company.
Trump has denied the allegations.
The contract, which was awarded in September 2016, was paid by a campaign firm that also represented the campaign of the president, according to the report.
The Trump campaign said in a statement Wednesday that the company’s subcontractors had been notified of the settlement and were cooperating with the investigation.
“The Trump Campaign will cooperate fully with the independent investigation, and we look forward to continuing to cooperate with the FBI as well as other federal authorities,” said campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks.
The investigation is looking into allegations that the Clinton campaign sought to silence a former federal prosecutor, Kenneth Starr, who was investigating the 2008 presidential campaign of then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton campaign and Trump are still fighting over whether the former president’s presidential campaign colluded with the DNC and other organizations to defeat the candidacy of former Vermont Gov.
Howard Dean, who lost the nomination to Trump in the 2016 election.
Trump has previously claimed he never intended to interfere in the election, and he has denied any wrongdoing in his handling of the DNC emails.
