Campaign Countdown: Clinton, Trump continue on the campaign trail

Campaign Countdown: Clinton, Trump continue on campaign trail

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Eighty-eight days until Americans head to the voting booth to choose the next president.

The Democratic nominee toured the factory of Futuramic Tools and Engineering Company in Warren, Michigan.  After that she gave a speech on the U.S economy - and like her opponent Donald Trump – Hillary Clinton says she opposes the TPP trade agreement that president Obama supports.

"But the answer is not to rant and rave – or to cut ourselves off from the world. That would kill even more jobs. The answer is to finally make trade work for us, not against us. So my message to every worker in Michigan and across America is this: I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages – including the Trans-Pacific Partnership," said Clinton.

Trump continues to make comments that raise eyebrows almost on a daily basis. Trump suggesting earlier this week that gun rights supporters could take matters into their own hands if Hillary Clinton is elected and appoints judges in favor of stricter gun control.

A joke perhaps, but a comment that many people saw as a threat of violence. Then Wednesday, he called President Obama the founder of ISIS and doubled down on that again Thursday.

"I call President Obama and Hillary Clinton the founders of ISIS. They're the founders. In fact, I think we'll give Hillary Clinton - you know if you are on a sports team - most valuable player, MVP. You got the MVP award. ISIS will hand her the MVP award. Her only competition is Barack Obama between the two," said Trump.

Trump has continued to fall in the polls in the past weeks. Clinton has now opened leads in key states such as Iowa, Ohio, and Pennsylvania and a recent AJC poll now shows her UP by seven here in Georgia, raising the possibility that the Peach State could turn blue for the first time since 1992.

One wild card that is now getting some attention, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

The former New Mexico governor has been gaining in the polls but needs an average of 15 percent to be included in the debates. The debate sites have been notified to prepare for the possibility of a three-person debate and that could certainly propel Johnson's campaign it happens.

Both Johnson and Green Peace Party candidate Jill Stein will be on the ballot in all 50 states in November.
