Where the top 2020 candidates stand on jobs, taxes and the economy
Republican Donald Trump is touting tax cuts and economic gains during his presidency as a reason why he should get re-elected in November 2020.

Democrats hoping to thwart his bid for a second term say, however, that Trump's economy has only benefited the rich while leaving behind the working class. Many are proposing broad changes such as a rollback of Trump's tax cuts and free college tuition.

Republican Donald Trump is touting tax cuts and economic gains during his presidency as a reason why he should get re-elected in November 2020.

Democrats hoping to thwart his bid for a second term say, however, that Trump's economy has only benefited the rich while leaving behind the working class. Many are proposing broad changes such as a rollback of Trump's tax cuts and free college tuition.

One sign of how broad the appetite for change is among Democrats: All but one of the dozen candidates who qualified for the Oct. 15 Democratic debate want to more than double the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour from $7.25.

The one who did not support such an increase, businessman Andrew Yang, instead wants to pay every American adult $1,000 per month.

Here are some of the views of the top 2020 presidential candidates on jobs, taxes and government assistance.
