    Topic one.
    Jobs and income inequality.

    Hillary is talking about her granddaughter's birthday, she is not answering the question.
    Profit sharing, that's a new idea.

    Hillary is veering off topic.

    Trump promises to clash corporation tax and renegotiate trade deals, Hillary promises 'smart and fair trade deals' and a tax system that rewards work and not a tax cut for the rich 'Trumped up trickle down'
