WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is hitting Donald Trump with the allegation that he uses Chinese steel in his construction projects.

Clinton is raising the charge while campaigning in Ohio, a rust belt state hit by the downturn of the American manufacturing and fierce competition from overseas.

Clinton says “for his talk of putting America first” Trump doesn’t support American industry with his products and projects. She says “that kills jobs right in this state.”

Clinton is campaigning on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus. She’s urging students to register to vote before Tuesday’s deadline.

Citing the Secret Service, the campaign says about 18,500 people attended the outdoor event on campus.
