women and children around the world. [cheers] can offer you a little tip? when you want to know something about the character of somebody in public life, look to see if beganave a passion that long before they were in office. and that they have consistently held it since their career. [cheers] do they have a passion, did it start before they were in office, have a help onto it consistently? hillary has a passion for kids and families. [cheers] passion, it has a is himself. [cheers] hillary, it is not just words and a competence.
she delivers as a senator. she battled after 9/11. he went to the towers, went to the pentagon and save the victims of the terrorist attacks. as secretary of state, she implemented tough sanctions against iran to pay the way for a diplomatic rate through to curtail -- breakthrough to curtail a nuclear weapons program. she was not afraid, she was not afraid. to stand upafraid to dictators. they decided to go to the end of the earth to wipe out osama bin laden is. -- osama bin laden. [cheers]

[cheers] member -- do you remember the mothers of the movement last night? [cheers] they said they trust hillary to sons and mothers' daughters safe. and on a personal level, as he is serving our nation abroad, i ourt hillary clinton with sons life. [cheers]
you know who i don't trust? i wonder. donald trump. guy who promises a lot but, you may have noticed, he has a way of saying the same two words every time he makes his biggest, he just promises. believe me. it is going to be great, believe me. we are to build a wall and make mexico pay for, believe me. [laughter] we are going to destroy issa so fast, believe me. [laughter] there is nothing suspicious and my tax returns, believe me. [laughter] [cheers] by the way, does anybody in this
massive auditorium believe that donald trump's been paying his fair share of taxes? >> nooo! >> does anybody here believe that donald trump ought to release his tax returns is like every other presidential candidate in modern history? [cheers] of course he should. donald, what are you hiding? , donald still says believe me. believe me. [laughter] believe me. believe me. peoplethe thing, most when they run for president, they don't just say believe me, they respect you enough to tell you how they will get things
done. [cheers] that is what most people who run for president to. -- do. in fact, he can go on hillary clinton.com right now and find out exactly how she will make the biggest investment in new jobs in a generation. how she will defend and build on wall street reforms, how she will reform our immigration system to create a path to citizenship how she will make it possible to graduate from college debt-free. you will see how she will protect roe be weighed, or to equal pay for women and make paid family a reality. [cheers] -- family leave a reality. [cheers] all it takes is one click and we can see how she will do it, how she will pay with -- for it and how we will benefit by it. not donald trump.
not donald trump. he never tells you how he is going to do any of the things he says he will do. he just says, believe me. [laughter] question, here's the question, do you really believe him? >> no! donald trump's whole career says he better not. small contractors, companies just like my dad's believe him, leave him cut when he said -- believed him when they said he would pay the casino. they do the work, hung the drywall, for the concrete, but a year after opening, donald trump up bankruptcy, he walked away with millions and they got pennies on the dollar. some of them went out of business. believed donald trump. >> boo!
retirees and families in florida, they believed donald trump when he said he would build up some condos. thousands of them. they paid their deposits but the condos, they were never built. he just pocketed their money and walked away. they lost tens of thousands of dollars all because they believed donald trump. believedfter charity donald trump when he said they would contribute to that. thousands of trump university students leave -- believed donald trump when he said he would help them succeed. they got stiffed. >> boo! >> he says believe me, his creditors, his contractors, his laid off employees, and his ripped off students did just that and they all got hurt. folks, you cannot believe one
word that comes out of donald trump's mouth [cheers] . [cheers] not one word. not one word. [cheers] not one word. >> not one word. not one word. >> i will tell you. me, it seems like our nation is too great to put in the hands of a slip talking, empty promising self-promoting one-man wrecking crew. [cheers] but don't take it from me, don't take it from me.
take it from former first lady barbara bush. barbara bush says she does not know how any woman could vote for him after his offensive comments to women. [cheers] any woman. or john mccain's chief economic adviser during the 2008 race who estimates that donald trump's promises would cost america to jobs..5 million or the independent analysts who found that donald trump tax plan given to the wealthy and biggest $30orations would rack up trillion in debt. or how about this? , the republican governor o who had the honor of hosting the republican convention in cleveland, but would not attend because he
thinks donald trump is such a moral disaster. [cheers] or take it from the guy who cowrote donald trump's autobiography, here is what he said about donald trump. lying is second nature to him. so do you believe him? >> no! >> how about the side, do you believe him? >> no!! >> is there anyone in this old and who believes them?! -- him? >> no! the next president will face many challenges, we better elect a candidate who has proven she can be trusted with the job. [cheers] who has proven
that she is ready for the job and when i say ready, i use ready for a specific reason. when i lived in honduras, i learned something. the best complement you could pay to somebody was to say that they were listo. ready. gente, amable, rico. listo because in spanish prepared, up for anything, never backing down. friends, hillary clinton is lista! [cheers] she is ready. [cheers]
she's ready because of her faith, because of her heart, she is ready because of her experience and she is ready because she knows that in america, we are stronger when we are together. [cheers] my fellow democrats, this week we start the next chapter in our great and proud story. thomas disclaimed all men were equal and abigail remember the women. woodrow brokered the peace and eleanor broke down the barrier. jack told us what to ask and lyndon answer the call. martin had a dream and dolores said si se puede. the built a bridge into 21st century and brca buzz hope and now -- barack gave us hope
thank you.rg: thank you. asim, thank you for the kind introduction. and let me hang all of you for welcoming an outsider here, to deliver -- [applause] an outsider, to deliver what will be an unconventional convention speech. here as a member of any party. or to endorse any party platform. i am here for one reason. to explain why i believe it is imperative that we elect hillary clinton as the next president of the united states. [applause] mr. bloomberg: and to ask you to
join with me in supporting her this november. you know, when the founding fathers arrived here in philadelphia to forge a new nation, they didn't come as , or tots or republicans nominate a presidential candidate. they came as patriots who feared party politics, and i know how they felt. i have been a democrat, i have been a republican, and i have ann -- i eventually became independent, because i don't believe that either party has a monopoly on good ideas or strong leadership. [applause] thebloomberg: when i enter voting booth each time, i look at the candidates, not the party label. --ave supported electorate elected officials from both side of the aisle, and probably, not many people in this room can say that. but i know there are many
watching at home who can. and now, they are carefully weighing their choices. i understand their dilemma. i know what it is like to have neither party fully represent my views or values. too many republicans, blame immigrants for the problems. they stand in the way of action on climate change and gun violence. meanwhile, many democrats, i think wrongly, blame the private sector for our problems and they stand in the way of action on education and deficit reduction. there are times when i disagree with hillary clinton. but let me tell you, whatever our disagreements may be, i have come here to say, we must put them aside for the good of our country. [applause] and we must unite
around the candidate who can defeat a dangerous demagogue. [applause] mr. bloomberg: i believe it is the duty of all american citizens to make our voices heard by voting in this election. are not yet registered to vote, go online and do it now. this is too important to sit out. [applause] now, we have: heard a lot of talk in this campaign about needing a leader who understands business. i couldn't agree more. i built a business, and i didn't start it with a million-dollar check from my father. [applause] mr. bloomberg: because of my success in the private sector, i had the chance to run america's or 12 years,
governing in the wake of its greatest tragedy. today, as an independent and an entrepreneur and a former mayor, i believe we have it -- need a president who is a problem solver, not a bomb thrower. [applause] mr. bloomberg: someone who can bring members of congress together to get big things done, and i know hillary can do that, because i saw it first hand. i was elected mayor two months , as a republican. and i saw how hillary worked with republicans in washington to ensure new york got the help they needed to recover and rebuild. throughout her time in the her timees, throughout in the senate, we didn't always agree, but hillary clinton always listened. and that is the kind of approach we need in washington today, and it just has to start in the white house. [applause]
given myberg: background, i will often encourage business leaders to run for office, because many of them share the same pragmatic approach to building consensus. but not all. most of us who have created a business know there -- we are only as good as how our employees, clients, and customers view was. most of us don't pretend we are smart enough to make every decision by ourselves, and most of us who have our names on the door know we are only as good as our word. but not donald trump. [applause] mr. bloomberg: through his career, the donald trump has left behind has left behind a record ofented or -- bankruptcies, lawsuits, angry stockholders, and congress mergers -- contractors who feel they have been tricked -- they
have been cheated. trump wants to run the nation like he runs his business? god help us. [applause] i am a newrg: yorker, and i know a con when i see one. [applause] mr. bloomberg: trump says he will punish manufacturers that moved to mexico or china. cells areothes he made overseas at low-wage factories. he says he wants to put americans back to work, but he games the visa-- system so he can hire low-wage workers. he says he wanted a port -- wants to deport undocumented
people, but he seems to have no problem hiring them. what did i miss here? truth be told, the richest thing about donald trump is his hypocrisy. [applause] mr. bloomberg: he wants you to believe that we can solve our biggest problems by deporting mexicans and shutting out muslims. he wants you to believe that erecting trade barriers will bring back good jobs. he is wrong on both counts. we can only solve our biggest problems if we come together and embrace the freedoms that our founding fathers established right here in philadelphia. which permitted our ancestors to create the great american exceptionalism that all of us now enjoy. donald trump doesn't understand that. hillary clinton does. [applause] and we can only
create good jobs if we make smarter investments in infrastructure, and do more to support small businesses, not stiff them. donald trump doesn't understand that. hillary clinton does. [applause] i understand the appeal of a businessman president. but trumps business plan is a disaster in the making. he would make it harder for small businesses to compete, do great damage to the economy, threaten the retirement savings of millions of americans, lead to greater debt and more employment, erode our influence around the world and make our communities less safe. the bottom line is, donald trump is a risky, reckless and radical choice, and we can't afford to make that choice. [applause] now, i knowg:
hillary clinton is not flawless. no candidate is. but she is the right choice, and the responsible choice in this election. [applause] mr. bloomberg: and no matter you may think about her politics or her record, hillary clinton understands that this is not reality television. this is reality. [applause] she understands the job of president. it involves finding solutions, not pointing fingers. offering hope, not stoking fear. country'sourse of our proud history, we have faced our share of grave challenges. but we have never retreated in fear. never. in here in philadelphia 1863,not at gettysburg in not through two world wars and
the great depression, not at wall, not after 9/11. we must not start now. [applause] america, america is the greatest country on earth. -- people come here. the presidency of the united states is the most powerful office in the world. i say to my fellow independence, your votes matter now. your vote will determine the future of your job, your business, and our future together as a country. this election is not a choice between a democrat and a republican. it is a choice between who is better to lead our country right now. [applause] ourbloomberg: better for economy, better for our security, better for our
freedom, and better for our future. there is no doubt in my mind that hillary clinton is the right choice this november. [applause] so tonight, as an independent, i am asking you to of party me, not out loyalty, but out of love of country. together,er, and let's select a sane, confident person with international experience. [applause] unifier who isa mature enough to reach out for advice, to build consensus and to recognize that we all have something to contribute. hillary clinton as the next president of the greatest country in the world, the united states of america. thank you. [applause]
, we took a tour of one of the centers. [video clip] >> here we are in another one of our exhibitions called headed to the white house. this will be throughout the election year and it is about celebrating the election and teaching about the presidential election process and all the different parts of the constitution in the process. it is broken up into four sections, so you're learning how to be the candidate, thinking about how you would join the race if you would be a candidate, and then you get to the section called earned a nomination. this is the part where you get

loopholes that 90% of americans want closed. suspectedy -- terrorist can walk into a gun store and walk out with a military style semiautomatic weapon, hillary clinton not have to make fighting to balance a centerpiece of her campaign, i'm sure people told her it was not worth the political risk, but she held firm. she stood up to the nra and hillary clinton pledged to take washington back from the gun lobby. [cheers] donald trump, when he sees gun violence devastating our communities, it is just like everything else. he sees it as an opportunity. another opportunity to convince americans that they should fear one another. another opportunity to do the baiting of the gun lobby.
90% of americans want the background check system expanded to cover more gun sales so dangerous weapons don't fall into the wrong hands. but donald trump says in his first hour in the oval office, he will rollback safeguards we already have an even more sinister, he said by the end of his first day in office, he will mandate that every school in america allows guns in the classroom. think about that for a moment. of all the things that donald trump in a promised to do on his first day of office, he chose weakening background checks and putting guns in elementary school. this is a fate we cannot accept. my friends, there is no reason to feel helpless about the horrifying trajectory cascading massacres. we can change this. smart gun policy like background checks come it can make this country safer. i stood on the floor of the united states senate for 15
hours because i had had enough. enough of children dying in our classrooms.

[cheers] trump, he's a different story. he will not fight for us. he feeds off of economic fears and failures. stars of false divisions and ancient hate. turns anger into a political weapon. but my friends, anger never fed a hungry child, did it? anchor never protected a family's home or send a kid to college. anger never built a great republic. witt trump's nightmare. we believe in the american dream. we believe, as hillary clinton
believes, that no american family who works hard should have to raise their children in poverty. donald trump on the other hand has actually said, "wages are too high." wages are too high? really, donald? i will tell you what is too high. college tuition is too high. [cheers] i will tell you what is too high. the cost of childcare, that is too high. [cheers] the number of american children who live in poverty, that is too high. donald trump's opinion of himself -- [laughter] that is way too high. [cheers]
actually donald, american wages in fact are too low. our economy isn't money, did his people. it is all of our people. and hillary clinton in tim kaine will fight to make sure that every family who is willing to work hard can actually get ahead again in america. [cheers] on climate change, like you and me, and in fact like our children and grandchildren, hillary clinton believes in science. understands that climate change is not only a real threat, it is also the greatest job creation opportunity to come to the united states in 100 years. now donald trump on the other hand does not believe in science. he says, and again i quote, "the
concept of global warming was created by and for the chinese." i will tell you what. if the chinese were really capable of designing some kind of diabolical farce to hurt america, they were not invent global warming. they would invent donald trump. [cheers] this much we know for sure, donald trump has been a bully his whole life. here is what i learned in elementary school on the playground. bullies are really just cowards in disguise. the america we love does not engage in torture. the america we love does not
build walls and shameful for-profit prisons. the america we love does not lock up women and children in disgraceful immigrant detention camps. [cheers] unlike that immigrant-bashing carnival barker donald trump, hillary clinton understands the enduring symbol of united states of america is not of our wire fence, it is the statue of liberty. [cheers] and so my fellow democrats, anger and fear had their moment last week. but now it is our time. time to stand up for each other, stand up for our shared promise, stand up for the goodness and the hope in every american heart. it is time to put a bully racist in his place and a tough woman in hers. the white house.
hillary clinton. tim kaine. stronger together. the country we carry in our hearts is waiting. [cheers] please welcome >> the former secretary of defense and director of the cia, leon panetta. [cheers] >> at this hour, and some very dangerous corners of the world, young americans are standing guard. our brave military and intelligence professionals are on the front lines far from
home. us, fortheir lives for our freedom, our way of life. president, a commander-in-chief, has no greater responsibility, no greater responsibility than the decision to send our troops into harm's way. [cheers] worked alongside non-presidents. republican and democrat. believingenced, all in the u.s. role in world leadership. this, that in this election, there is only one candidate for president who has the experience, the temperament and the judgment to be
commander-in-chief and that is hillary clinton. [cheers] this is no time, this is no time to gamble with our future. flashpoints and threats from around the globe. we need a president who is strong and smart encourages, who thers the oval office with respect of the generals and admirals who lead the military. with the confidence of diplomats who represent america and with the trust of our troops who know that she will always have their back. [cheers] that president is hillary clinton. [cheers]
during my time as cia director, and secretary of defense, hillary was a strong supporter of our efforts to protect our homeland. to decimate al qaeda and to bring osama bin laden to justice. [cheers] decisions, to go after bin laden, long meetings in the white house. decisiond that fateful . i presented the intelligence to the president and to others weighing out the risks of the operation. and when the president went to ourthe table, country. security leadership, there were concerns. but hillary was clear. we have to go after bin laden.
[cheers] and our special operations forces, god bless them, they just that. and they sent a clear message to the world, no one attacked the united states of america and gets away with it. [cheers] hillary is just as determined to defeat those who threaten us today. isis, al qaeda, boko haram, al-shabaab, terrorists who pervert the teachings of islam to kill innocent people going about their daily lives. traveling through airports in brussels and the scandal. families celebrating on the beachfront in france.
and just this week, an 85-year-old priest whose throat was slit by terrorists who stormed his church during mass. these murderers must be stopped. [cheers] hillary clinton is the only candidate who has laid out a comprehensive fan -- plan to defeat and destroy isis and keep america safe. she is smart, principal, she is tough and she is ready. [cheers] hillary clinton is the single most experienced and prepare a person who has ever run for president of the united states. [cheers]
meanwhile, donald trump says he gets his foreign-policy experience from watching tv and running the miss universe pageant. funny, but it is deadly serious. troops tomp asks our commit war crimes, endorses fromre, burnt our allies europe to asia and suggests that countries have nuclear weapons and he praises dictators from saddam hussein to vladimir putin. today, let me point
out something that just happened today. again trump today once took russia's side. he asked the russians to interfere in american politics. think about that. >> boo! >> think about that for a moment. donald trump who was the president of the united states is asking one of our adversaries to engage in hacking and intelligent efforts against the united states of america to
affect an election. >> boo! someone who is responsible fromrotecting our nation cyber attacks, it is inconceivable to me that any presidential candidate would be that irresponsible. i say this out of the firm mycern for the future of children and grandchildren, donald trump cannot become commander-in-chief. [cheers] in an unstable world, we cannot afford unstable leadership.
we cannot afford someone who believes america should withdraw from the world, threatens our international treaties and violates our moral principles. we cannot afford an erratic finger on the nuclear weapons. [cheers] is no time to roll the dice and to gamble with america's national security or with the american dream. no doubt. i've lived that american dream. my parents were immigrants or mentally. -- italy. they came from ellis island. they made their way to california. they opened a restaurant. i can still remember standing on the chair in the back of that restaurant washing glasses. -- could i do
agree that i would become secretary of defense of the most powerful military in the world. [cheers] the american dream -- usa.a usa usa! usa! usa! >> the american dream. the american dream that we've of has beenart appended in every generation by the brave men and women willing to fight and die for america. they are our greatest national treasures. [cheers]
and they deserve a serious commander-in-chief. them, if webout care about our security him if we care about our freedoms, if we care about the american dream, there is only one choice, hillary clinton for president of the united states. [cheers] god bless you and god bless our nation. [cheers] life. [cheers] ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the vice president of the united states, joe biden. [cheers]

[cheers] he has become a brother to jill and me. and michelle, you are incredible. [cheers] you are incredible! [cheers]
i was talking to brock today, it is no longer he will give the best speech, we know who did that. you are incredible monday night. night. incredible monday [cheers] the delaware delegation, as they barack and i married way up. [cheers] tonight, i see so many friends and colleagues like my buddy chris dodd from the connecticut delegation. so many people here. those whofaces of have placed their belief in barack and me. so many faces. but one, this is kind of a better sweet moment for jail and me and our family.
2008, when he was about to do play to a again in 2012, our son though -- bo introduced me to the country and place my name and nomination. glimpse of what an incredibly fine young man beau was. [cheers] thank you. [cheers] thank you. [cheers] his wife and his two kids are here tonight. [cheers] as ernest hemingway once wrote, the world breaks everyone, and afterwards, many are strong at
the broken places. i've been made strong at the broken places by my love with jill, but my heart and son hunter and the love of my life, my ashley. by all of you, and i mean this sincerely, those who have been through this, you know i mean byt i say, i all of you, -- all of you, your love and prayers and support, you know what, we talk about, we think about the countless thousands of other people who suffered so much more than we have, with so much less support. so much less reason to go on. morning,get up every every day. [cheers] they put one foot in front of the other, they keep going. that is the unbreakable spirit of the people of america. [cheers] that is who we are.
[cheers] that is who we are. don't forget it. like the people of the neighborhood that joe and i grew up, -- jill and i grew up, the kurds claymont, the most always jumped and when you are double teamed or your back was against the wall. became a cop because he always wanted to help people. the middle daughter of three daughters, who always made her mother smile, who is a hero to her sisters. now i major in the united states marine corps because i wanted to serve my country. [cheers] jill knows whoo take money out of their own pockets to buy pencils and notebooks for their students who
can't afford them. [cheers] why? because being a teacher is not what they do, it is who they are . [cheers] you know what i know, for real. that the the people heart and soul of this country. it is the america that i know. the america that hillary knows and tim kaine knows. [cheers] i've known hillary for well over 30 years, before she was first lady of the united states, when she became first lady, we served together in the united states asate and during her years secretary of state, once a week we had breakfast in my home, the
vice president's residence. everybody knows she is smart. everyone knows she is tough. but i know what she is passionate about. [cheers] i know hillary. [cheers] hillary understands, hillary gets it. she understands the college loans are about a lot more than getting a qualified student education. it is about saving the mom and dad from the indignity of having to look at the child and say i'm sorry, the bank would not let us the money. i can help you get to school. i know that about hillary. hillary understood that for years, millions of people went to bed staring at the scaling -- ceiling thinking what if i get breast cancer or he has a heart attack? i will lose everything. what will we do then?
i know about hillary clinton. [cheers] we alland gentlemen, understand what it will mean for our daughters and granddaughters when hillary clinton walks into the oval office as president of the united states of america. [cheers] it will change their lives. [cheers] granddaughters can do anything any son or grandson can do and she will prove it, mr. mayor. [cheers] let me say this as clearly as i can, if you live in the neighborhoods like the ones jill and i grew up in, if you worry about your job and getting a decent pay, if you worry about your children's education, if you are taking care of an elderly parent, then there is
only one person in the selection will help you, only one person in this race who will be there, who has always been there for you and that is hillary clinton's life story. not just who she is, it is her life story. [cheers] she is always there. she has always been there. [cheers] and so has tim kaine. [cheers] ladies and gentlemen, let's say meant,ious, i really that is not donald trump story. just listen to me a second without doing or cheering. booing or cheering, his cynicism is undoubtedly his lack
of empathy and compassion can be summed up in that phrase he is most proud of making famous, you're fired. i'm not joking. think about that. think about that. think about everything you learned as a child. no matter where you were raised, how can there be pleasure in saying you're fired? he is trying to tell us he cares about the middle class. give me a break. that is a bunch of malarkey. [cheers]
whatever he thinks, whatever he thinks, and i mean is from the bottom of my heart, i know i'm called middle-class joe and in washington, that is not meant as a compliment. it means you are not sophisticated. i know why we are strong, i know why we are held together, i know why we are united, it is because there has always been a growing middle class. this guy does not have a clue about the middle class. not a clue. [cheers] folks, when the hill middle class does well, the rich do very well and the poor have hope. they have a way out. he has no clue about what makes america great. period., he has no clue
great, the times are too uncertain to elect donald trump as resident of the united states. party,finish, no major no major party nominee in the history of the station has ever known less or been less prepared to do with our national security -- deal with our national security. we cannot elect a man who exploits our fears of isis and other terrorists, who has no plan whatsoever to make a safer. a man who embraces the tactics of our enemies, torture, religious intolerance, you all know. other republicans no, that is not who we are. it betrays our values. it alienates those who we need in the fight against isis. donald trump, with all his
rhetoric would literally make us less safe. we cannot elect a man who belittles our closest allies while embracing dictators like vladimir putin. i mean it. [cheers] a man who seeks to go -- sow division in america for his own gain and disorder around the world. a man who confuses bluster with strength. happenly cannot let that as americans. [cheers] period. [cheers] folks -- [cheers] have, whatever doubts i mean what i say. but sometimes i say all that i mean. let me tell you what i literally tell everyone leader i've met with. ,nd i met them all, it is never
never, never been a good bet against america. [cheers] we have the finest fighting force in the world. -- only [cheers] not only do we have the largest economy in the world, we have the strongest economy in the world. [cheers] we have the most productive workers in the world. and give it a fair shot. given a fair chance. americans have never, ever, ever, ever, ever let the country down. [cheers] never! [cheers] ordinary people like us, who do , we hadinary things
candidates before attempting get elected by appealing to our fears, but they've never succeeded because we do not scare easily. break,r bow, we never when confronted with crisis. we endure! we overcome and we always move forward. [cheers] that is why. [cheers] that is why i can say, without absolute conviction that i am more optimistic about our chances today than when i was elected as a 29-year-old kid to the senate. the 21st century is going to be the american century. [cheers] we lead not only by example of our power, but by the power of our example. [cheers] of the the history journey of americans. and god
