CLEVELAND ― Hillary Clinton cannot be the next U.S. president if Americans don't want the calamitous Obama economy to carry on, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, said Monday night.
"Our middle class is steadily declining, with our African American and Hispanic communities being hurt the most. But, the Washington establishment, the media, and big corporations have been in denial," he said at the Republican National Convention. "This is an economic disaster. We are on the wrong track and the people know it."
"Yet, Hillary Clinton's plan is more of the same: more government, more taxes, more regulation, … and more debt, " he said. "She has been a champion of globalist trade agreements. But the facts are in. They have not worked for our people."
Sessions cited the ballooning trade deficit between the U.S. and China. Since 1993 ― when Bill Clinton was president ― through 2015, the U.S.-China trade deficit has risen 1,512 percent, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Sessions also criticized the Obama administration for "pushing" the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the president's immigration policies.
"Bad trade deals close factories, and end high paying jobs. Excess immigration floods the labor market reducing jobs and wages," he said. "Americans want help now. This election will make it happen."
"That is why we need Donald Trump. "
Before Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was named Trump's running mate, Sessions' name was among those considered for the GOP vice-presidential candidate. Sessions was also one of the first prominent GOP members to endorse Trump.
Sessions took office in 1997 and has been a heavy opponent of comprehensive immigration reform.
"We increasingly face the same problems in the United States. In seven years, we will reach the highest level of foreign born in our history. While limited, carefully vetted immigration is in our national interest, the push for open borders and ever higher levels of immigration increasingly isolates new immigrants and threatens our security," he said in a Friday statement, following the terrorist attack in Nice, France.
