Marketplace Morning Report
Start your day with an up-to-the-minute report on the world of business and finance with host David Brancaccio.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is making the economy a central issue this election season, as so many before him. His chief economic beef? Bad trade deals.

Jonathan Rothwell, senior economist at Gallup and author of the study, speaks to Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio about his findings.
