On day four of the Democratic National Convention, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton formally accepted the nomination for president by the Democratic party.
“It is with humility, determination, and boundless confidence in America’s promise that I accept your nomination as President of the United States,” Hillary said on the final day of the convention.
The first woman presidential candidate nominated by the Democratic Party focused on the inclusion of all Americans, taking a jab at GOP candidate Donald Trump’s position as a president at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
After Sander’s more-than-forthcoming nomination for Clinton, the former Secretary of State thanked the Vermont Senator for “inspiring millions of Americans, particularly the young people who threw their hearts and souls into [the] primary.”
“To all of your supporters here and around the country, I want you to know I have heard you – your cause is our cause,” Clinton closed.
Guest speakers, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and many more presented glowing speeches about Clinton’s quoted overqualification for presidency.
Thursday night saw a Republican give praise to Clinton following a Trump GOP party nomination.
“I’m here to say, Donald Trump, you are no Ronald Reagan,” said Doug Elmets, former speechwriter for Reagan. “Donald Trump says, build the wall. Ronald Reagan said, tear down this wall.”
Now that Clinton has accepted the nomination, largely unopposed despite very strong support from Sanders supporters at the convention, the candidate will take on Trump, with a hundred and one days until the November presidential election.
