Hillary Clinton is replying to Donald Trump's economic address on Monday by saying it would benefit rich corporations and the wealthiest Americans at the expense of the working class. She's promising to raise taxes on the wealthy because, she says, "that's where the money is."

During a campaign swing through St. Petersburg, Florida, Clinton wryly advised her supporters: "Don't let a friend vote Trump."

Clinton says his scripted speech amounts to Trump scrambling to do "damage control" with a steadier performance designed to reassure Republicans who had grown nervous after a disastrous week.

She says, "Don't be fooled," adding, "There is no other Donald Trump."

Clinton is expected to deliver an economic address in Detroit on Thursday. Aides are billing the speech as a response to Trump's remarks.
