In particular, Clinton took issue with Trump's apparent embrace of the LGBTQ community. "As your President, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology, believe me," Trump said.
One of her final tweets of the evening was, "This is real—Donald Trump just accepted the @GOP nomination. RT if you agree: We can't let him become president."
"Tonight, Donald Trump painted a dark picture of an America in decline. And his answer – more fear, more division, more anger, more hate -- was yet another reminder that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be President of the United States."
Podesta continued, "He offered no real solutions to help working families get ahead or to keep our country safe, just more prejudice and paranoia. America is better than this. America is better than Donald Trump. Next week in Philadelphia, Democrats will focus on issues, not anger. We'll offer a positive vision for the future based on lifting America up, not tearing Americans down."
