AKRON, OH - Donald Trump is pledging that as president, he would appoint a special prosecutor to probe the financial dealings of The Clinton Foundation.

Trump said Monday at a campaign rally at the University of Akron that the Department of Justice had "acted unethically" in probing Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

He also said the Justice Department and the FBI "can't be trusted" to investigate the foundation after declining to prosecute Clinton over the email scandal. He criticized Attorney General Loretta Lynch for meeting privately with former President Bill Clinton as the department's probe was underway.

"I've become increasingly shocked by the vast scope of Hillary Clinton's criminality," Trump told the crowd.

He claimed that Hillary Clinton, his election opponent, had overseen corrupt pay-for-play practices while heading the State Department.

During the rally, Trump also declared that "the era of economic surrender is over."

Trump has criticized trade deals put in place by President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, husband of Trump's general election opponent, Hillary Clinton.

"If you are not prepared to put American workers first, you should be able to seek public office," Trump said at the rally in Akron.

He also bashed Clinton's immigration policy, saying it would lead to "open borders." Meanwhile, he doubled down on his own signature immigration plan.

"We're going to build the wall, folks. That wall will go up so fast your head will spin," Trump said. "You're going to say 'He meant it!' And you know what else I mean: Mexico is going to pay for it."
