Donning SEIU purple, Clinton told the crowd of union workers, “Trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs, more debt. He could bankrupt America like he’s bankrupted his companies."

"I mean, ask yourself: How can anybody lose money running a casino, really?" she added.

According to CNN Money, Trump has filed four business bankruptcies but has never filed for personal bankruptcy. His most recent bankruptcy was filed in 2009.

During the first Republican presidential debate Aug. 6, Trump said he has used bankruptcy chapter laws “to do a great job for my company, for myself, for my employees, for my family."
