The Democratic convention has released excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s speech tonight, and the 2016 presidential nominee does not mince her words about her former rival.
“I wish Donald Trump had been a better president. But, sadly, he is who he is,” Clinton will say.
Clinton will note she has met a number of Americans who have said they wish they could go back to 2016 in order to cast ballots or change their votes.
“Well, this can’t be another woulda coulda shoulda election,” Clinton will say. “Vote like our lives and livelihoods are on the line, because they are.”
Like other speakers, Clinton will also reference Joe Biden’s personal losses to underscore his commitment to his family and his country.
“There’s a lot of heartbreak in America right now – and the truth is, many things were broken before the pandemic. But, as the saying goes, the world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places,” Clinton will say.
“Joe Biden knows how to heal, unify, and lead, because he’s done all of that for his family and his country.”
