Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president with “humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise” in a historic speech Thursday night.
The former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State argued that America is strong and will be improved by people working together, making the case against Republican rival Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.
“So don’t let anyone tell you that our country is weak. We’re not. Don’t let anyone tell you we don’t have what it takes. We do. And most of all, don’t believe anyone who says I alone can fix it,” she said.
