The democratic party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a swipe at her republican counterpart Donald Trump during her address to the crowd after accepting her nomination.
68 year-old Hillary was introduced to the crowd by her daughter Chelsea, who used superlatives to praise her mum, acknowledging her role as a good mother, grandmother, and politician.
Hillary then took the stage to a round of applause from the crowd.
She thanked the crowd, Chelsea, her husband Bill Clinton noting that the conversation they started in the library at law school still goes strong 45 years later.
She also thanked president Barack Obama, stating that America is better for Obama’s leadership, and that she is better because of her friendship with him.
She spoke on the American Revolution. Notifying all present on the strength in unity.
She then took a swipe on Trump saying, ”Well, we heard Trump’s answer in Cleveland last week. He wants to divide us from the world and from each other.”
“He has taken the Republican Party from morning in America to midnight in America,” she added.
She referenced Franklin Roosevelt, the 32nd US president who said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Clinton went on to provide a stark contrast with Donald Trump. She warned to never believe anyone who says he can fix anything alone.
“Really?” She questioned, adding ”Americans say we’ll fix it together.”
Clinton took another jab at Trump by speaking on the American constitution drafted by the Founders where no one person can control all the power, saying, ”power was dispersed and for 240 years we still put our faith in each other.”
She then tore into Trump for calling the armed forces a disaster, which she says is a sign of ”disrespect” to the men and women who wear the uniform.
She then said that a man who you can bait with a tweet should be nowhere near the nuclear codes.
The former Secretary of State also addressed the issue of gun law saying, “i’m not here to repeal the Second Amendment. I’m not here to take away your guns.”
She added that she doesn’t want people to get shot from someone who shouldn’t have a gun in the first place. She promised to work tirelessly with responsible gun owners to pass common sense reforms and keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists.
Piling more on Trump, Clinton said that America is great because America is good. Saying to the crowd, ”let’s cut out the bigotry and bombast.”
And as she closed her remarks, she said, “the choice is clear, my friend. Let’s be stronger together, and let’s look to the future with courage and confidence. Let’s build a better tomorrow. And when we do, America will be greater than ever.”
