Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine made a campaign stop in Lorain on Thursday accompanied by fellow U.S. Senator Al Franken.

Kaine is tying Donald Trump's business record to the decline in steel jobs in Northeast Ohio.

The Virginia senator said about 1,200 steel jobs in Lorain have been lost due to competition from China. Hillary Clinton frequently dings Trump for using Chinese steel to build his business empire.

Kaine said Trump isn't being truthful when he promises to be tough on China and create more American jobs.

He said: "If you look at the record and you look at the words, it should tell you the words don't mean anything."

Franken, the former Saturday Night Live writer and comedian, jokingly told the crowd to ignore their jobs and families from now until Election Day to work to defeat Trump.
