Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump put forward competing visions for the US economy in their debate on Monday evening.

Clinton said Trump's tax policies were akin to "Trumped-up trickle-down" economics.

"The kind of plan that Donald has put forth would be trickle-down economics all over again. And in fact it would be the most extreme version, the biggest tax cuts for the top percents of the people in this country that we've ever had. I call it Trumped-up trickle-down, because that's exactly what it would be. That's not how we grow the economy," she said.

Trump criticized Clinton for her trade policies. "We have to stop our jobs from being stolen from us," he said, attacking the former secretary of state's husband Bill CLinton for his signing of NAFTA.
