11:20 p.m.: “Just ask yourself, Does Donald Trump have the temperament to be Commander-in-Chief? He can’t even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign. He loses his cool at the slightest provocation. When he’s gotten a tough question from a reporter. When he’s challenged in a debate. When he sees a protester at a rally. Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”
“Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of young black and Latino men and women who face the effects of systemic racism, and are made to feel like their lives are disposable.
Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of police officers, kissing their kids and spouses goodbye every day and heading off to do a dangerous and necessary job. We will reform our criminal justice system from end-to-end.”
11:15 p.m.: “The choice we face is just as stark when it comes to our national security. Anyone reading the news can see the threats and turbulence we face. From Baghdad and Kabul, to Nice and Paris and Brussels, to San Bernardino and Orlando, we’re dealing with determined enemies that must be defeated. No wonder people are anxious and looking for reassurance, looking for steady leadership.”
“Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority.”
11:10 p.m.: “We’re going to give small businesses a boost. Make it easier to get credit. Way too many dreams die in the parking lots of banks. In America, if you can dream it, you should be able to build it.”
“We’re going to help you balance family and work. And you know what, if fighting for affordable child care and paid family leave is playing the ‘woman card,’ then deal me in.”
11:04 p.m.: “If you believe the minimum wage should be a living wage, and no one working full time should have to raise their children in poverty, join us.”
“… That’s how we’re going to make sure this economy works for everyone, not just those at the top. Now, you didn’t hear any of this from Donald Trump at his convention. He spoke for 70-odd minutes, and I do mean odd. And he offered zero solutions. But we already know he doesn’t believe these things.”
“In my first 100 days, we will work with both parties to pass the biggest investment in new, good-paying jobs since World War II. Jobs in manufacturing, clean energy, technology and innovation, small business, and infrastructure,” Hillary Clinton said.
10:57 p.m.: “Tonight, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union — the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President. … When any barrier falls in America, it clears the way for everyone.”
“When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit. So let’s keep going, until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves.”
“Democrats, we are the party of working people, but we haven’t done a good enough job showing we know what you’re going through and we’re going to do something about it.”
10:49 p.m.: “I’ve been your First Lady. Served eight years as a Senator from the great State of New York. I ran for President and lost. Then I represented all of you as Secretary of State.”
“The family I’m from, well, no one had their name on big buildings. My family were builders of a different kind. Builders in the way most American families are. They used whatever tools they had, whatever God gave them, and whatever life in America provided, and built better lives and better futures for their kids.”
“I will be a President for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For the struggling, the striving and the successful. For all those who vote for me and those who don’t. For all Americans together.”
10:47 p.m.: “And so it is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise, that I accept your nomination for President of the United States,” Hillary Clinton said.
10:40 p.m.: “Donald wants us to fear the future, and fear each other,” she said. “We are clear-eyed about what our country is up against. But we are not afraid. We will rise to the challenge, just as we always have.”
“We will not ban a religion, we will work with all Americans and work with our allies to fight and defeat terrorism,” Hillary Clinton said.
“We have the most powerful military, the most innovative entrepreneurs,” Hillary Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone tell you our country is weak. Don’t believe anyone who says, ‘I alone can fix it.’ Those were actually Donald Trump’s words … and should set off alarm bells for us. Isn’t he forgetting those on the front line.”
“He’s forgetting every last one of us,” Hillary Clinton said. “Americans don’t say ‘I alone,’ we say ‘we’ll fix it together.’”
10:34 p.m.: On children, Hillary Clinton, 68, said, “The president we elect is going to be their president too.”
“I want to thank Bernie Sanders,” she said, prompting chants of “Bernie” from the audience. “To all your supporters here and around the world … your cause is our cause. Our country needs your ideas, energy and passion. That is the only way we can turn our progressive platform into real change for America.”
“We’ve come to Philadelphia, the birthplace of our nation … our founders embraced the enduring truth that we are stronger together,” Hillary Clinton said. “Once again America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. Bonds of trust and respect are fraying. And just as with our founders there are no guarantees. It’s truly is up to us. We have to decide whether we’re going to work together so we can all rise together.”
10:27 p.m.: Hillary Clinton has taken the stage as the last speaker at the Democratic National Convention.
“Thank you so much. … And Bill that conversation we started in the law library 45 years ago, it is still going strong. You know that conversation has lasted through good times that have filled us with joy and hard times that have tested us, and I’ve even gotten a few words in.”
“What a remarkable week it’s been. We head the man from Hope, Bill Clinton, and the man of hope, Barack Obama.”
10:06 p.m.: Chelsea Clinton has taken the stage to introduce her mother, Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
“I’m here as a proud American, proud Democrat, proud daughter,” Chelsea Clinton said.
Chelsea Clinton said her daughter Charlotte loves to FaceTime with her grandmother.
“My earliest memory is my mom picking me up, giving me a big hug and reading me ‘Good Night Moon,’” Chelsea said. “Regardless of what was happening in her life, she was there for me.”
“I love that my parents expected me to have opinions … and to be able to back them up,” Chelsea said.
“She’s a listener and a doer, she’s a woman driven by compassion, faith … and a heart full of love,” Chelsea said. “I’m voting for a fighter that never gives up.”
