• ‘We are better than this,’ Clinton tweets at Trump


    WASHINGTON, DC: Hillary Clinton fired off a icy rebuke Thursday to her rival Donald Trump after he savaged her record upon accepting the Republican nomination for President, telling him: “We are better than this.” Clinton’s one-line tweet came midway through a sweeping acceptance speech in which Trump attacked the Democratic former secretary of state for a legacy of “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.” (From Cleveland, Ohio): The following is a selection of reaction on Twitter to Trump’s speech: Bernie Sanders, former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination @BernieSanders Trump: “I alone can fix this.” Is this guy running for President or dictator? Laura Ingraham, conservative host of the Laura Ingraham Show @IngrahamAngle This is @realDonaldTrump broadening the base of the GOP. The inner city will no longer be neglected. They have suffered under Obama. Stephen King, author @StephenKing That wasn’t a convention. It was something closer to a lynch mob. Republicans, you should hang your heads in shame. Ari Fleischer, former White House spokesman for President George W. Bush @AriFleischer For everyone saying this speech is “too dark,” remember-69pc of the nation thinks the USA is on the wrong track. Many will agree w Trump. Meghan McCain, daughter of Republican Sen. John McCain @MeghanMcCain The party I was part of is dead. Michael Cohen, Boston Globe columnist @speechboy71 This is the bleakest, darkest, most fascistic speech I’ve ever heard delivered by an American politician.
