Trump to Give Speech Voicing Skepticism of Global Trade Deals
Good Tuesday morning. 
Donald J. Trump will give a speech on trade along the outskirts of Pittsburgh on Tuesday, his second major address in less than a week as his campaign seeks to turn the page on the tumultuous month since he captured the Republican nomination.
The speech will focus on an issue that has been a calling card for Mr. Trump in his upstart presidential race: a deep skepticism of global trade deals that exist in the base of both parties.
Perhaps most significant? He will deliver the speech not at a Trump property, but at Alumisource, a steel industry firm.
Mr. Trump’s best shot at the presidency resides with working-class white voters, with whom his populist message has deep resonance amid stagnant wages. The speech is part of the campaign’s focused effort to move to a new phase, with the general election about four months away, and with much time squandered on infighting among advisers.
The Republican will speak a day after Hillary Clinton gave an address in Ohio with Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a champion of anti-Wall Street sentiment, by her side. Ms. Warren was chastised as a “sellout” by Republicans for making the appearance with Mrs. Clinton, who has taken millions in donations and in paid speaking fees from Wall Street.
Whether Mr. Trump can capitalize on that criticism will be an open question on Tuesday.
