Hillary Clinton took the stage tonight to accept the Democratic nomination at the party’s convention in Philadelphia and make a historic speech as the first woman to run for president.
Her speech greatly contrasted that of her Republican opponent Donald Trump, proving to be optimistic about America’s future and the power of working together.

Clinton responded to Trump directly, insisting Americans say “We’ll fix it together,” not “I alone can fix it.”
“I alone can fix this? Isn’t he forgetting troops on the front lines, police officers and firefighters who run towards danger, doctors and nurses who care for us, teachers who save lives?”
Clinton painted a picture of the America she hopes to create by becoming president.
“A country where all our children can dream and those dreams are within reach. Where families are strong, communities are safe, and yes, love trumps hate.”
After thanking her family and President Obama, she thanked her rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders, and his supporters.
Clinton was introduced by her daughter, Chelsea, who said that along with being a proud American, Democrat, and mother, she was a “very, very proud daughter.”
