Ben Stein: Trump on the Economy ‘Makes Me Want to Cry’

Ben Stein lashed out at Donald Trump on Monday for “very scary” economic pitches and chalked up Trump’s performance among voters concerned about the economy to “sheer idiocy.”
The former Nixon/Ford speechwriter, actor and writer told CNN that in all his years as an economist, “which is roughly 50 years, I’ve never seen such nonsense as we just heard from Mr. Trump and it breaks my heart, it makes me want to cry because I’m Republican, I’ve never voted for a Democrat, and to think the guy who’s our likely standard bearer has such nonsensical ideas of every single aspect of the economy is just breathtakingly horrible.” Stein was responding to Trump telling supporters at a Wisconsin rally Monday that the U.S. is “going to go into a massive recession.”
