for this taking place. all of this took place the same day as trump's economic speech in detroit. we promise to cut taxes and simplify the tax code. >> in the days ahead we will provide more details on this plan and how it will help you and most importantly your family. it will present the tax raiding, poverty inducing obama clinton agenda. >> during that speech trump was interrupted by protestors more than a dozen times. no one was more vocal in their opposition than democratic rival speaking from florida. >> he wants to roll back regulations on wall street. he wants to eliminate the consumer financial protection bureau which has saved milliobi of dollars for americans.

speech, they are in trouble. trump i thought handled today reasonably well. he gave the classic republican agenda on economics, cut taxes. what is really notable is how anti trade he is, he remains. he is to the left of her on trade. that leaves us with an election where there's nobody to defend trade. this is new in modern american u.s. history. >> polls show hillary clinton double digits a i head of trump in the general election match up. 50 percent to trump's 37 percent. in the meantime a new twist in the race as a new candidate adds his name to the ballot. edwin mcmullen is running as an independent. he said he had to get into the race because both of the candidates according to him are
unfit. >> for months i as many americans have hoped someone with national name id would step up and do what i am doing. i believe this is the last moment when somebody can offer an alternative to these two unfit candidates. donald trump keeps saying terrible things that alienates large swaths of the population. he's holy unfit. i think he's dangerous to the country. >> mcmullin has an uphill battle as most have passed in most states to put the name on the ballot. the u.s. swimming team adding to the gold column. ryan murphy setting an olympic record swimming to victory in the 100 meter back stroke. >> lilly king snatched up another gold in the 100 meter breast stroke.

issues. >> the donors will make sure, a vote for hillary clinton is a vote for tpp. it's also a vote for nafta. hillary clinton will never withdraw from tpp. she has bought, controlled and paid for by her donors and special interests 100 percent. she has been a disaster. obama has been a disaster. >> we took a fox news poll and apparently some people degragreo do you think will do a better job on the economy trump 50 percent clinton 45 percent. comparing her two policies i know she has yet to give details on hers. >> i think he's over stating his case a little bit. tpp isn't going to solve our problems in the country.
it is not the biggest issue. he's right to focus on tax. regulation is a much bigger issue. we have seen much more regulation so he should keep his focus there. he should keep his focus more on regulation and taxes. the reality is more complicated than he is talking about. >> hillary clinton did double down on raising taxes on the wealthy. i was happy to start hearing about the issues from both candidates. both providing a different view of how to move forward here. >> no question there is a contrast. donald trump is making the contrast free stark. this is the area he has most success. >> he also left out specifics as to how you are going to pay for all of this. those are the details we were looking for on hillary clinton on thursday. how are we going to pay for his plan? >> they need the economy to grow
really fast. that is where the cuts come in. you are talking 2 and a half trillion dollar deficit as a result of the tax cut. >> he is making the fact that americans care more about economic growth and jobs. we will see if that's the case. >> 20 minutes after the hour. segregating classes by race. one college's attempt to make them more comfortable, is it doing more harm than good? >> the tsa stepping out the surgeon who operates in unlikely places. we will tell you where.

>> a promise to parents to allow them to deduct the cost of child care. >> what does it mean for working moms who want to go back to work. the come back. how they reenter the workplace successfully. >> i understand 54 percent of american families they say they spend more than>> many parents struggle with this whether or not both parents can go back to work and afford it. i right that in the book.
the cost of child care has gotten so so expensive many parents don't want to work. trump says the cost of child care will be fully deductible. the average cost of a daycare center in 2015 was $196 a week. that comes out to 10,192 dollars a year. so that -- i am assuming you would have to itemize this on your tax return. don't know. he didn't tell us. that would be a savings of more than $10,000. that's for the average american family paying for kdaycare. that would encourage more moms to go back to work. >> it could have an impact as well. >> 20 percent of american families they said they spend about 25 or even more than that of their income on child care. clearly this impacts so many families. we are hearing from hillary clinton and donald trump on this
issue. >> hillary clinton, her plan basically is she wants to cap the cost of child care at 10 percent. i think that's the wrong way to go. she talks about federal subsidies. to simplify it, yes, keep paying taxes to the government and they will subsidize your child care. that never works. take out the middleman is what donald trump is saying you pay for it you get the tax deduction next year. hillary's plan also i worry about what it would do to the economy and job growth. a lot of times you have the government come in and say they are going to deal with the industry it leads to job losses and lowered economic growth. that's what concerns me about hillary's side of this. neither candidate being that specific of course they are running for the president of the united states. they are not being specific. >> we did hear 34 percent of families worry about job security. >> they do. also, too, many people talk about this in the book. many women when they go back to
work they worry they are going to be penalized at work or they are not going to be promoted because they are dealing with the issue of child care, whether or not they have good child care. if you know you can pay for it if you know it is budgeted you know you are going to get a tax reduction next year it would encourage a lot of women to go back to work. that would grow the economy to trump's point. >> always good to see you. thank you for breaking this down. >> evan kau trump in the white house? speaking of women in the workplace. the 34-year-old revealing if her b dad becomes president she will also get a new bigig. the mother said quote there are things i am passionate about like child care. she is promoting her book, women who work initiative, actually. she doesn't have an official title in her dad's campaign. >> from the baseball field to the white house former major

donald trump. what would you like to ask him about his plan? >> we have been wondering this all morning. how is he going to pay for it? >> especially the child care portion of it. >> a lot of families want to know the specifics on that. >> he's coming up in the 7:00 hour right here on "fox & friends" kicking off right now on the channel you watch for your morning news. >> let us know what you would like to know. tired of re-dosing antacids? try duo fusion! new, two in one heartburn relief. the antacid goes to work in seconds... and the acid reducer lasts up to 12 hours in one chewable tablet. try new duo fusion. from the makers of zantac.
