In a speech Thursday outside Detroit, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton hit Donald Trump for what she's calling a "Trump loophole" in his economic plan.

During a speech in suburban Detroit, Clinton says Trump's plans to cut taxes on certain business income would benefit many of his companies. Clinton said "he'd pay a lower rate than millions of middle-class families." She added that it was hard to know exactly how much Trump would benefit because he has not released his tax returns.

Clinton also stressed her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, saying: "I oppose it now, I'll oppose it after the election and I'll oppose it as president."
