>> Let's go out and build the future.>> Hillary Clinton hit the stumps swinging against trade deals, Thursday, trying to sell America's workers her vision for the nation's economy.>> 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.

I oppose it now, I'll oppose it after the election, and I'll oppose it as President.>> Clinton knows Donald Trump, who earlier this week rolled out his most extensive economic plan so far, has tapped into the feeling of frustration among America's struggling working class, and is doing her best to win them over.
00:00:43
Says Reuters correspondent, Luciana Lopez.>> She made a strong play for union voters, which is not surprising in Detroit because free trade has emerged as something of a flash point in this election. And Hillary Clinton had previously supported the deal, so Donald Trump has seized on that as evidence that she might not be good for American workers after all and now she's really trying to convince voters that her reversal on this is genuine and that it'll stick.
00:01:12
>> From rehashed proposals to raise taxes on the rich and rebuild infrastructure, Clinton's speech, Tuesday, delivered one key message.>> She's trying to say to people, particularly those who might still be undecided, well. I'm not just talking about the economy. I'm talking about your economy. Here's why I will be good for you, specifically.

For your household. For your family finances. And she's trying to pitch herself as the candidate who's going to ramp up economic growth for that large slice of the United States that has seen their wages and wealth stagnate for quite a while now.>> Clinton is trying to hold onto gains made in the polls after several missteps and gaffes made by the Trump campaign.
00:01:50
Besides the speech Thursday, sources say she will release her 2015 tax return in the coming days. That's something Trump has refused to do.
