Hillary Clinton pitched herself as the most unifying and qualified candidate for president in her historic acceptance speech on Thursday. Clinton, the first female ever to be nominated by a major party, called the upcoming election a "moment of reckoning" for America.
She touted the Democratic Party for its prevailing message of optimism and love, and blasted GOP candidate Donald Trump for his short temper, hateful rhetoric and lack of experience.
Trump, in typical fashion, took to Twitter to respond to Clinton's speech. He called her platform "borderless" and claimed, under her vision, "working people" would be worse off.
Hillary's vision is a borderless world where working people have no power, no jobs, no safety.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2016
Clinton seemed to recognize that many Americans have an issue trusting her and asked the crowd to have faith in her competence and compassion.
No one has worse judgement than Hillary Clinton - corruption and devastation follows her wherever she goes.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2016
Trump on Twitter said 'no one has worse judgement' than Clinton.
Clinton also extended an olive branch to her primary opponent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, thanking him for rallying supporters. She said she is dedicated to healing the rift in the party caused by that primary race and told his supporters "I've heard you. Your cause is our cause."
President Obama praised Clinton with this tweet.
Now Clinton will go head to head against The Donald. The Department of Justice announced this month it would not file charges over Clinton's handling of classified information during her time as secretary of state. But she will need to be on guard while Trump and the GOP look to dig up skeletons from her past.
