A Donald Trump win in the presidential election could be detrimental to one city's efforts to build trade ties with Mexico. Greg Stanton, the mayor of Phoenix, Arizona has set a goal to double exports, particularly with Mexico. Stanton says Phoenix is currently leading the country in increasing exports with Mexico, and says it's important for cities to build export-based economies to prepare for the future. "Building walls is a really dumb idea. We need to be building economic bridges, not walls," said Stanton, who described Trump's policies toward Mexico as "harsh" and "bad." Stanton says Phoenix has expanded its economy after the last recession, and is increasingly becoming a hub for technology companies. TheStreet's Rhonda Schaffler has details from Wall Street.
