Donald Trump is taking a different tack against rival Hillary Clinton — urging voters to "follow the money," and portraying his rival as controlled by deep-pocketed donors and special interests.

The GOP nominee rolled out the new strategy — a "renewed focus on populist themes in battleground states" — during a speech in Iowa on Wednesday, Politico reports. 

"Everything you need to know about Hillary Clinton can be understood by this simple phrase: follow the money," Trump told one rally crowd, Politico reports.

And during the speech — within a span of 25 minutes — Trump's campaign put out five press releases with the "follow the money" heading, Politico reports.

According to Politico, the attack plan includes accusations of "ethical red flags" at the Clinton Foundation, including criticism of a uranium deal approved by Clinton's State Department after her foundation received large donations from people with stakes in the deal; Clinton's relationship with Irish telecom billionaire Denis O'Brien; Clinton's six-figure speaking engagements; and a 2009 deal over disclosing the identities of American account-holders that the State Department concluded with Swiss bank UBS, a Clinton Foundation donor.

It also includes a Twitter #FollowTheMoney; "This one is pretty cool," campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tells Politico.

"We're going to go to anybody who has had financial dealings with the Clinton Foundation," campaign spokesman Jason Miller tells Politico.

"Anybody who's paid the Clintons who then received favors and official actions in return. Anybody who's gotten rich by being friends with the Clintons based off of these official actions."
