Donald Trump To Propose Deduction On Childcare Spending: Campaign Aide

US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will propose allowing parents to deduct spending on childcare from their income taxes in a speech on Monday meant to challenge the economic policies of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, a campaign aide said.

The aide, who asked not to be identified, said on Sunday in outlining the plan: "We don't want it to be an economic disadvantage to have children." The aide said the campaign would have a more detailed childcare plan in the future.

A wealthy businessman seeking his first public office, Trump seeks to counter Clinton's argument he is out of touch with the problems of working families. He will also say that, unlike Clinton, his business policies would encourage companies to remain in the United States, a concern of blue-collar workers he has tried to court, the aide said.
