Wednesday was day three of the democratic national convention which was graced by some of the party’s powerful figures - President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, who gave persuasive speeches in support of the former secretary of state.
They all attacked republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
On Wednesday night President Obama took to the stage and asked the Democratic Party supporters to join him in making sure that Hillary Clinton was elected the next president of the United States.
“This year, in this election, I am asking you to join me – to reject cynicism, reject fear, to summon what’s best in us, to elect Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States, and show the world we still believe in the promise of the great nation.”
At the same time, President Obama urged the democrates to realize that Donald Trump is planting fear in the American people as a means to win the November election.
“He’s just offering slogans, and offering fear. He’s betting that if he scares enough people, he might score just enough votes to win this election. And that is another bet that Donald trump will lose. And the reason he will lose it is because he’s selling the American people short.”
Vice president Joe Biden also showed his disapproval of electing trump as America’s next president, saying democrats should stand their ground and elect Clinton.
“A man who seeks to sow division in America for his own gain and disorder around the world – a man who confuses bluster with strength. We simply cannot let that happen as Americans.”
Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, also took to the stage to mobilize the democratic base for the forthcoming presidential poll. He wasted no time in taking a direct jab at trump.
“Our nation, it is just too great to put it in the hands of a slicking –talking, empty promising, self- promoting one-man wrecking crew!”
Trump, on the other hand, was busy telling republicans that Clinton is not honest. He went on to insinuate that Russia should hack Clinton’s emails.
The former Secretary of State used her private emails while she was in office, a move that has attracted a lot of criticism from Americans.
