BROOK PARK, Ohio– Republican candidate Donald Trump visited Northeast Ohio on Labor Day.

Trump was with running mate Mike Pence at a morning round-table discussion with union members in Brook Park.

Trump talked manufacturing. “We will get our jobs back and we will stop companies from leaving. Trade is a one-way street and it’s leading us to the poor house. We have to bring jobs back to this country or we are not going to have a country.”

Brook Park Mayor Tom Coyne talked about lost jobs from Ford. Here’s how Trump answered. “We are right now at 1% growth now. No jobs, no growth, really negative growth. If we can get it up to 4%– actually, I think we can get it higher than that. We are making it a much simpler tax system- will be one of the lowest taxed nations in the world, will bring jobs back.”

Cleveland Police Union President Steve Loomis was also at the round-table discussion.  “On a national level, police departments are villainized. Hope your position is you are going to support law enforcement. City and Gov. Kasich are cutting budgets, on skeleton crews. The people who suffer the most are in the high-crime neighborhoods. I would hope that when you are in there you would take that into consideration,” Loomis said.

Trump says he has heard that police departments are having trouble recruiting. Says Loomis has his support. “I’m very strong on law enforcement. We need law and order.”
