Hillary Clinton Becomes First Woman to Accept Major Political Party Nomination

Hillary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president last night (July 28) at the fourth and final day of the Democratic National Convention.


Clinton, who has been involved in politics for years as First Lady, a New York senator, and as Secretary of State, made history by becoming the first woman to be nominated by a major political party in the United States.


After her daughter Chelsea Clinton gave a warm introduction of Clinton as a mother and grandmother, Clinton took to the stage in Philadelphia for her acceptance speech. reports that during the 56-minute long speech, Clinton spent a large portion of time making the case against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.


While in his 75-minute long acceptance speech Trump painted a grim picture of the challenges facing the nation, Clinton took a more upbeat tone.


"He's taken the Republican Party a long way, from 'Morning in America' to 'Midnight in America,'" Clinton said. "He wants to divide us - from the rest of the world, and from each other."


“He’s betting that the perils of today’s world will blind us to its unlimited promise,” she continued. “He wants us to fear the future and fear each other. Well, a great Democratic President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, came up with the perfect rebuke to Trump more than 80 years ago, during a much more perilous time: ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’”


Trump, for his part, tweeted: 

Trump’s campaign also issued a statement, saying, “At Hillary Clinton’s convention this week, Democrats have been speaking about a world that doesn’t exist. A world where America has full employment, where there’s no such thing as radical Islamic terrorism, where the border is totally secured, and where thousands of innocent Americans have not suffered from rising crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago.”


After the DNC, Clinton will campaign in Pennsylvania while Trump is campaigning in Colorado.
