Donald Trump said Monday that he agrees with Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' opposition to President Barack Obama's trade policy. Sanders "has struck a nerve. He knows the problem at least," Trump said in an interview on MSNBC. The difference between them is that Sanders is "is not going to do anything about it" while Trump said he could negotiate good trade agreements with the Chinese. Asked about three ideas to restore the economy's health, Trump said he would trim the fat of the federal government, simplify the tax code and give incentives to spur investment in depressed inner cities. He said he would like to simplify taxes to the point where H&R Block Inc. would be out of business.
