Donald Trump tells the National Associations of Home Builders in Miami that home ownership is the American dream and his goal is to keep jobs and wealth in America.

“Our goal is to keep wealth in America,” he explained, stressing he wants to do the same for jobs.

The Republican nominee stayed on message, talking about the economy and going after his rival Hillary Clinton’s record.

“Home building is very close to my heart,” the New Yorker explained to his audience, noting that his father built homes in Queens and Brooklyn. “The regulations are horrible — what’s happening with regulations.”

“Over regulation, which is a big problem, is costing our economy two trillion dollars a year,” the real estate mogul noted, also blasting frivolous lawsuits against builders.

“Home ownership is at its lowest rate in 51 years,” Trump scowled, adding that home ownership is “the American dream.”

“This is not what we want…and it will change if I’m elected president,” he said about incompetent leadership as he went after the former secretary of state. “Hillary Clinton wants to tax and regulate our economy to death.”

“Clinton is getting a little bit nervous,” he added, referencing a new poll that he says that shows the race is tightening. “She’s spending hundreds of millions of dollars on ads…I haven’t spent anything.”

Trump told the audience that he’s traveling around Florida throughout the day as he’s holding a campaign rally at 7 p.m. in Kissimmee, Florida, near Orlando.
