Hillary Clinton’s big speech to Wall Street
The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee on Wednesday offered her thoughts on the financial crisis and the role of the Federal Reserve as it struggles to revive the economy.
The speech was designed to address concerns from Wall Street that the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) could not properly respond to the current crisis and that the Fed should step in to help prevent another one, Clinton said.
Clinton also discussed her record as first lady, her relationship with President Donald Trump, and the 2016 presidential race, which was dominated by the controversy surrounding her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State.
Clinton said the 2016 election was the most important presidential election since the 1920s, but she did not give a specific prediction about how she would vote.
Clinton is expected to make her first major policy speech since announcing her candidacy in July.
She will outline her economic vision, which includes creating 15 million jobs by the end of the decade.
She is also expected to announce her new presidential campaign, which will feature her first television ad and a joint fundraiser.
