    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence attacked Democrat rival Hillary Clinton’s ties to Wall Street during a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Pence then hit Clinton’s 2008 vote to approve the nearly $1 trillion Wall Street bailout, and accused her of helping to oversee the "weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression."

    "If you’re keeping score, from 2013 to 2014 [Clinton] collected $21 million in speaking fees from those big corporations and Wall Street," Pence told the crowd after mocking her economic proposal to raise taxes on Wall Street and corporations to pay for new government spending.

    In the battleground state of New Hampshire, the Trump campaign’s economic message may help win over the voters who overwhelmingly supported Bernie Sanders, a tough anti-Wall Street candidate.

    According to the latest aggregate polls, Trump is trailing Clinton by 8 percent in New Hampshire.
