TRUMP CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCES TRUMP ECONOMIC ADVISORY COUNCIL

(New York, NY) August 5, 2016 – On Monday, August 8th Donald J. Trump will unveil his policy agenda for revitalizing the American economy at the Detroit Economic Club, at 12:00pm. Mr. Trump’s speech will focus on empowering Americans by freeing up the necessary tools for everyone to gain economically. It will stand in stark contrast to Clinton’s same, stale big government policy prescriptions that have choked economic growth in America and led to over 40 years of wage stagnation. Americans will have two choices presented to them this November, to stay on the same path that has cost Americans millions of jobs, and declining incomes, or change that can finally allow Americans to reach their potential and become great again.

Donald J. Trump is also pleased to announce his economic advisory team comprised of some of the top economists in the country as well as the most successful industry leaders in finance, real estate and technology. Creating jobs and fixing the Obama Administration’s economic failures of the last eight years is a fundamental reason that Mr. Trump is seeking the presidency. Only he can rebuild the economy, addressing the issue most important to voters with common sense solutions, while preventing Hillary Clinton from amplifying and expanding the failed Obama policies for another four years.

Members of the economic team include individuals with unparalleled experience and success in business including Tom Barrack, Andy Beal, Stephen M. Calk, Steve Feinberg, Harold Hamm, Howard Lorber, Steve Mnuchin, John Paulson, Wilbur Ross, and Steve Roth. Additionally, the team includes highly respected advisers Dan DiMicco, David Malpass, Stephen Moore, and Peter Navarro. Working with the Advisory Council will be the campaign’s policy team will be led by National Director of Policy, Stephen Miller, and Deputy Director, Dan Kowalski. Additional members of the Advisory Council will be added at later dates.

Mr. Trump has often said that he intends to utilize leaders in business to help renegotiate our terrible trade deals, create jobs and rebuild our economy into a thriving, and dynamic worldwide leader that puts American’s first.

Mr. Trump stated, “I am pleased that we have such a formidable group of experienced and talented individuals that will work with me to implement real solutions for the economic issues facing our country. For too long we have watched as President Obama and Hillary Clinton have ruined our economy and decimated the middle class. I am going to be the greatest jobs President our country has ever seen. We will do more for the hardworking people of our country and Make America Great Again.”
