Transcript for 2nd night of DNC will take aim at Trump
We're going to turn now to the democratic national convention, before night two even begins, the reaction to last night. Former first lady Michelle Obama and what she said about president trump. Tonight, the president responding, and here's ABC's Mary Bruce again tonight. Reporter: Tonight, Democrats will argue Joe Biden is the leader America needs, after Michelle Obama set the tone with a fierce takedown of president trump. Let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is. Reporter: The former first lady reinventing her famous motto, when they go low, we go high. But let's be clear, going high does not mean putting on a smile and saying nice things when confronted by viciousness and cruelty. Reporter: And she had a blunt ING for voters -- If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can and they will if we don't make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we he got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it. Reporter: Watching closely, president trump. Do you have a response to Michelle Obama's speech last night, where she said you are in over your head and you're the wrong president? She was over her head and frankly, she should have made the speech live, which she didn't do, she taped it. Not only was it taped, but she taped it a long time ago, she had the wrong deaths, she didn't even mention the vice presidential candidate in the speech. Reporter: Michelle Obama taped her speech before Biden announced kamala Harris as his running mate and when the coronavirus death toll was at 150,000. Since, it has jumped to over 170,000. She gets these fawning reviews, if you gave a real review, it wouldn't be so fawning. I thought it was a very divisive speech, extremely divisive. Frankly, I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for Barack Obama. Reporter: Late today, Biden taking aim at trump's leadership. President trump doesn't seem concerned about anything beyond his own ego and -- but I think it's more than that, I think he just lacks the capacity to be able to do it. Reporter: Tonight, the case for trusting Biden will be made by the woman who knows him best, his wife Jill Biden. She will be giving her speech tonight from the Delaware high school where she used to teach English. A lot of eyes on Jill Biden tonight. Mary Bruce with us live from Washington. And Mary, Michelle Obama bringing up the numbers last night, too, reminding Americans that Hillary Clinton won by nearly 3 million votes and it wasn't enough, saying that Democrats cannot take the election for granted, in so many words. And senator kamala Harris not surprisingly very impressed with Mrs. Obama last night. Reporter: David, kamala Harris responded to Michelle Obama's speech, calling it a powerful call to action.
