Trump unveils his economic advisory council -- no minorities, no women, just one economist



Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced his 13-person economic advisory council just days before he gives a speech in Detroit outlining his his plan for the economy.

Trump has attacked both Republican and Democratic politicians for not protecting American jobs. He vows to prevent outsourcing and bring manufacturing jobs back to America.

At a recent rally in Jacksonville, Trump called for a 35 percent tariff on companies who ship jobs overseas.

Monday's speech is meant to introduce Trump's larger plan for the economy and the policies crafted by his economic advisors.

The team has come under fire for not having any minorities or women, and just one PhD economist.
