Philadelphia, July 29: Hillary Clinton on Thursday (July 28) portrayed her Republican rival Donald Trump as a volatile and short-tempered man who cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons as she scripted history by becoming the first women presidential nominee of a major political party in the US.

"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," Clinton told fellow Americans while accepting the Democratic Party's nomination to run for president in the November general elections.
Clinton said she would build an economy that gives jobs to every one and not a few and a country where "love trumps hate". That is the country she is fighting for, she said. "It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in Americas promise that I accept your nomination for president," Clinton said as thousands of party delegates, leaders and supporters at the Wells Fargo Center erupted in cheers and applause.
The former first lady, senator and secretary of state set her sights on the White House and blasted Trump, portraying him as a small man, who got rich by stiffing workers, peddles fear and lacks the temperament to be commander in chief.
"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," she charged.
"Ask yourself: Does Donald Trump have the temperament to be Commander-in-Chief?" she asked." "Donald Trump says, and this is a quote, 'I know more about ISIS than the generals do. No, Donald, you don't," Clinton said. Clinton alleged that Trump wants to divide Americans. "We heard Donald Trump's answer last week at his convention. He wants to divide us...He wants us to fear the future and fear each other," she said.
"I will be a president for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For the struggling, the striving and the successful...for all Americans," Clinton said. "A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country," she said, adding that Trump can't even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign.
Clinton said if Americans are serious about keeping the country safe, they can't afford to have a president who's in the pocket of the gun lobby. She was making a reference to Trumps opposition to gun control laws.
