Hillary Clinton accepts Democratic presidential nomination

  |   World News

PHILADELPHIA —Hillary Clinton formally accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president Thursday night, delivering a speech in which she said that the nation is in a “moment of reckoning” and aggressively cast Republican nominee Donald Trump as a divisive figure stoking fear across the country. “He wants to divide us from the rest of the world, and from each other,” Clinton said. “He’s betting that the perils of today’s world will blind us to its unlimited promise.” Clinton said Trump has “taken the Republican Party a long way -- from ‘Morning in America’ to ‘Midnight in America,’” nodding to a famous Ronald Reagan ad campaign. “He wants us to fear the future and fear each other,” said Clinton.
