Virginia Democrat Tim Kaine on Wednesday accepted the party’s nomination for vice president, and took the opportunity to criticise the Republicans’ presidential candidate, Donald Trump. “You cannot believe one word that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth,” he told the audience. “To me it seems like our nation it’s just too great to put in the hands of a slick-talking, empty-promising, self-promoting, one-man wrecking crew… Don’t take it from me. Take it from former first lady Barbara Bush. She said she didn’t know how any woman could vote for him after his offensive comments.”
After Kaine, President Barack Obama also addressed the convention, speaking in support of Clinton. On Tuesday, Clinton officially won the presidential nomination, making her the first woman in American history to do so.
Earlier, Democrat and former New York mayor, Michael Bloomberg, attacked Trump, saying, “I’m a New Yorker. I know a con when I see one,” and that “the richest thing about him is his hypocrisy”. He also said, “Hillary understands this is not reality television, this is reality.”
Meanwhile, Trump’s running mate Mike Pence addressed a rally in Wisconsin, urging people to vote for the Republican presidential nominee. He appealed to voters and said, “for the sake of our Constitution, for the sake of the sanctity of life, for the sake of the sanctity of our Second Amendment and all our God-given liberties” they should support Trump.
