stronger together than we are on our own. that's what hillary clinton understands. this fighter, this stateswoman, this mother and grandmother, this public servant, this patriot, that's the america she's fighting for. and that is why i have confidence, as i leave this stage tonight, that the democratic party is in good hands. my time in this office, it hasn't fixed everything. as much as we've done, there's still so much i want to do. but for all the tough lessons i've had to learn, for all the
places where i've fallen short, i've told hillary, and i'll tell y you, what's picked me back up every single time, it's been you. the american people. it's the letter i keep on my wall from a survivor in ohio who twice almost lost everything to cancer but urged me to keep fighting for health care reform, even when the battle seemed lost, do not quit. it's the painting i keep in my private office, a big eyed green owl with blue wings, made by a 7-year-old girl who was taken from us in newtown. given to me by her parents so i wouldn't forget. a reminder of all the parents who have turned their grief into action. it's the small business owner in colorado who cut most of his own
salary so he wouldn't have to lay off any of his workers in the recession. because, he said, that wouldn't have been in the spirit of america. it's the conservative in texas who said, he disagreed with me on everything but he appreciated that, like him, i try to be a good dad. it's the courage of the young soldier from arizona who nearly died on the battlefield in afghanistan, but who has learned to speak again and walk again. and earlier this year, stepped through the door of the oval office on his own power to salute and shake my happened. it is every american who beli e
believes we can change this country for the better. so many of you who had never been involved in politics, who picked up phones and hit the streets and used the internet in amazing new ways that i didn't really understand, but made change happen. you are the best organizers on the planet, and i am so proud of all the change that you made possible. time and again, you've picked me up. and i hope sometimes i picked you up, too. and tonight, i ask you to do for hillary clinton what you did for me. i ask you to carry her, the same way you carried me. because you're who i was talking about 12 years ago, when i talked about hope. it's been you who fueled my dogged faith in our future, even
when the odds were great, even when the road is long, hope in the face of difficulty, hope in the face of uncertainty. the audacity of hope. america, you've vindicated that hope these past eight years. and now, i'm ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen, so this year, in this election, i'm asking you to join me, to reject cynicism and reject fear and to summon what is best in us to elect hillary clinton as the next president of the united states. and show the world we still believe in the promise of this great nation. thank you for this incredible journey. let's keep it going. god bless you. god bless the united states of america.
>> 12 years to the day he burst on the national scene, two-term president barack obama gives his political valedictory. grateful, emotional at the end. thanking the american people for picking him up when he was down. passing the baton, as he said, to hillary clinton, remarkably generous speech for a president to give. saying that hillary clinton, no man or woman, no one who has held the office has been more qualified to serve as president of the united states of america. hillary clinton can serve as president of the united states of america. improved for donald trump, imag images. it's her optimism. he called for the audacity of hope.
an. there. this is a relationship that was not formed easily, but look how grateful she is for that speech he gave tonight. tears in her eyes, as well. say i saying he's proud of her. the most optimistic candidate, the most optimistic campaign. he called the deeply pessimistic vision we saw in cleveland. the question is, is this year different? >> well, i mean, there's so many articles of faith in this election that have been broken in a in. and what normally happens is, the outsider is coupled with the optimism. 1992, bill clinton. 2008, barack hussein obama, 1980, ronald reagan, but this year, the outsider is pessimistic and the insider is optimistic. >> which may be why, jon karl, we saw him take off on donald
trump again and again and again in that speech. a president has never done that. >> george, we have never seen an outgoing lame duck president give a speech anywhere near this, like this, he went at donald trump. he sees donald trump as not a political rival, but somebody who is dangerous. this is personal. this is a campaign that he is eager to be apart of and to fight. >> pierre thomas, you pointed out, we saw the contempt we talked about earlier, the president even laughing when he talked about trump. >> there was a sneer often when he talked about donald trump as if, i can't believe this guy's actually in the position that he's in. the other thing that struck me is that he talked about the great collective, that this country is great because of diversity, contrasting donald trump. >> talked about a big america. martha raddatz, personal testimony to hillary clinton, saying he had a front row seat to her intelligence. where as bill clinton talked about her soft side last night, he talked about her toughness and tenacity. >> he talked about her toughness, her discipline, her
good judgment. tenacity, he said, over and over again. he talked about the raid on osama bin laden. he painted her as a tough leader who would be a good commander in cheech, b chief, but he, too, mentioned her as a mother and grandmother, really, again, the first time in history we've heard those words. >> tim kaine right there, a shoutout for tim kaine, as well. and david muir, he had this crowd in the palm of his hand. >> no question, george, did he have the crowd in the palm of his hand. and that moment at the end, when hillary clinton emerged on that stage, you know, tim kaine is here in the audience, his family, bill clinton is here, but they chose that the two of them would walk out on that stage together and what an incredible story between these two people who were rivals eight years ago, and him coming out here tonight and passing the baton, as you said, pointing out that she is not the woman on the sidelines. she is the woman in the arena. sometimes not noticed, in his words, but he urged this audience not to boo, but to vote for the woman in the arena,
george. >> terry moran, he quieted the protesters in the crowd. >> he did, george. and he also paid tribute, explicitly and implicitty to the bernie sanders people here. he created their hard work, their passion and working on the issues of income inequality and other things. he reached out to them on that issue of democracy, i think the whole convention's emotional level has been raised by the unpredictability and the passion of the bernie sanders delegate. i'm going to ask this lady right here, can i ask, what did you think of the president's speech? >> oh, it's unbelievable. wonderful. he's -- he's a star. he's an star. we love him. all of us do. >> all right, and that is definitely the feeling. thank you very much. right throughout the hall here. he played this hall like an organ. george? >> the emotional level is raised. and cecilia vega, the bar very high for hillary clinton tomorrow. you saw the smile on her face.
>> george, i'm standing here near clinton and obama staffers. they were crying during this speech. i also want you to know, i am standing where i can see the teleprompter, the president was reading from it and he made that joke about the birth certificate, that was not in his prepared remarks. martha said it, this was a commander in speech test that he laid out, who can best walk into the oval office and do that job, he made the case, he said, it's hillary clinton. this is going to be his stump speech. >> tomorrow night, hillary clinton's night. we'll be here right here at 10:00 eastern. for now, we send you back to your regular programming. for some of you, that is your local news. and i'll see you tomorrow on "gma." this has been a presentation of abc news. i approve this message.
donald trump: i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go f--- themselves! you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever... you gotta see this guy. ahh, i don't know what i said, ahh. "i don't remember." he's going like "i don't remember!" delaware valley with jim gardner. the scene a moment ago as this crowd went absolutely wild. hillary clinton and the deleg e delegates here joining her former boss, president barack
obama. hillary clinton, making this her own convention on this night. on a night that included more than a few heavy hitting democrats, he was the heaviest hitter of them all. president barack obama came out tonight and sent the delegates into delirium to explain to the country, why in his view, hillary clinton must be elected president. good evening. we are live at the democratic national convention. it is the end of a dramatic day for the democrats here at thece. it is wednesday night. president barack obama, vice president biden, tim kaine and michael bloomberg speaking. the final speech came from president obama who flew into
philadelphia 90 minutes before taking the stage. he called donald trump risky. >> the donald is not a planned guy. he's not really a fast guy, either. he's a sensitive guy, which is true. i know plenty of businessmen and women who achieved remarkable success without a trail of lawsuits, unpaid workers and people feeling like they got cheated. >> reporter: obama went through several drabs, but only rehearsed it in full once, yesterday. the president highlighted clinton's capability as a leader, his view and called on voters to elect her come november. >> no matter how daunting the odds, no matter how much people try to knock her down, she never, ever quits.
that is the hillary i know. that is the hillary i have come to admire and that's why i can say with confidence, there has never been a man or a woman, not me, not bill, nobody more qualified than hillary clinton to serve as president of the united states of america. >> reporter: senator tim kaine officially accepted his party's nomination for vice president tonight. the former governor of virginia highlighted his humble roots and told the american voters how his wife prepared him for the job of vice president. >> this journey that i told you about has convinced me over and over again that god has created, in our country, a beautiful and
rich tapestry, an incredible cultural diversity that succeeds. when we embrace in love and battle back the dark forces of division. >> reporter: kaine talked about the differences between hillary clinton and donald trump and warned trump cannot be trusted. on the floor of the delaware delegates, they listen to the speech, vice president, joe biden. and we are hearing from former philadelphia police commissioner. and the protest front with the bernie or bust crowd. another donald trump controversy today, this one over what he wants russian spies to do with hillary clinton's e-mails. we begin with "action news" reporter on the floor with the new jersey delegation. good evening. >> reporter: hi there, jim.
passionate speeches from the speakers. vice president, joe biden, he was talking about concept. he has no clue about the middle class. the vice president saying hillary clinton's experience and president obama describing hillary clinton as the torchbearer. no man or woman, he said, was more qualified to be president. the crowd erupted. it was not expected at all. everyone was excited about it. we talked to delegates and here is what they have to say. >> it's exactly what we need. the hope that he's given us for the eight years he's been in office. absolutely incredible speech and shows, as democrats, this country is great and we know we don't need donald trump to tell
us we are great. we don't have it as fear mongering. we are a great country and optimistic about the future as ever before. >> what did you think of senator kaine's speech? >> amazing, invigorating, exciting and very real. >> i think tonight is an election night of the democratic party. the president may have given one of the better speeches in modern history. unite the party. look around the room, you have thousands and thousands of people who are going to work to make sure hillary clinton and kaine win this election. >> reporter: back live now, as you are watching the delegates leave the auditorium, this place was wild a couple minutes ago. a nice moment before the speeches started. i don't know if you caught it, but a number of stars began singing "what the world needs
now." it was after speeches on gun violence, it included gabby giffords and a mother who had a son killed. hillary clinton arrived and that tore the place apart. live on the floor, nora muchanic, channel 6 "action news." >> thank you. let's switch live to sarah bloomquist in the arena. sarah, the delaware delegates must have been bursting with pride as vice president, joe biden, took the stage. >> reporter: joe biden got a tremendous reception from all the delegates here on the convention floor. he told the delegates he knows hillary clinton and as we come to expect from joe biden, he told us exactly like he sees it when it comes to donald trump. watch as he entered on to the stage and listen what delaware delegates had to say about his appearance tonight. we all unde
will mean for our daughters and granddaughters when hillary clinton walks into the ovl office as president of the united states of america. it will change their lives. my daughters and granddaughters can do anything any son or grandson can do. 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 are fired. he's trying to tell us he cares about the middle class. give me a break. that's a bunch of mularkey. >> t.
he showed us how much he cared about not only people in delaware but throughout the entire country. i's very, very important we take that. >> you feel more values as americans, the middle class jobs. you can see it on display. >> he said this is a swan song for joe biden, this is the end. they don't know joe. he's going to continue to make an amazing appearance. he will do great things for us in the years ahead. >> reporter: delegates don't think this is the end of seeing the man they simply know as joe, here on a national stage. live on the convention floor, sarah bloomquist, channel 6 "action news." back to you. >> thank you, sarah. we were fortunate to make our way through reporters to talk one-on-one with the vice president, a conversation with joe biden.
jim gardner from channel 6. >> how are you? >> good to see you. >> i'm home to talk to you now. >> this was a victory tonight. what kind of emotion did you have out there tonight? >> well, you know, i -- i have trouble thinking that way. i mean there's so much more to do. you have known me a long time.> and run it again. someone hit the wrong button. we will get it again for you. on this night for the democrats, donald trump is occupying a good deal of conversation here. what's not clear is whether he wants that conversation or not, considering what people are conversing about. here is the story and here is what vice president biden and i were talking about as you will see in a short time. it happ
conference in miami. trump directed a request to the russian government to hunt down the missing hillary clinton e-mails. here is what he said. >> russia, if you are listening, i hope you are able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. i think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. see if that happens. >> the american dream we have all been -- >> that created a fire storm from democrats, republicans and the foreign policy establishment. committing espionage against a rival, even trump's running mate, pence said there would be serious consequences if he
meddled in the election. you have reaction to the latest trump story. >> reporter: jim, i talked with several national security experts today. they are literally up in arms about what trump did. the democrats, of course, hope to exploit this latest trump jaw dropper. official reactions came swiftly. here is chris co osons. >> donald trump doesn't understand what he's playing with. he's urging a hostile foreign power to conduct espionage and break into the e-mails of the democratic nominee. >> reporter: staffers sabotaging bernie sanders campaign. all signs analysts say point to the kremlin. >> they are 99.9% convinced it
was the russians. >> reporter: anger from clinton supporters. >> trump comes out and says do it again and do my political opponents e-mail and send it to us. >> reporter: if the russians hack into a political party's account, that's getting close to an act of war. signs are wikileaks have information on hillary clinton. >> they know that many of the materials that were hacked that they have have yet to be made public. one of the fears is, it got into the clinton foundation. >> reporter: so it goes, jim. this reads like a spy novel. the drama will continue. live at the dnc, channel 6 "action news." >> vernon, thank you. the majority of the day has been quieter on the protest front.
still, bursts of frustration from sanders supporters, mostly at city hall. as night fell, many demonstrators gathered outside the wells fargo security perimeter leading to a serious confrontation with police and several arrests. lolita lopez is live with the breaking details. >> reporter: police commissioner richard ross saying how compliant they have been for the past couple days. two significant incidents, i'll show you video. this was shot by a man by the name of rob webber in austin. he was kind enough to let us use the video. there were 12 mass protesters that breached the security fence around wells fargo center. police converged, restored the fencing and made several arrests. they gave us an update on the situation. >> 10:30 tonight, six to a dozen
folks who, despite warning breached the fence. we told them it was a federal offense. they decided to do it anyway. i don't understand why they did that. we handled it with the folks out here. reporter: again, - -- onc again, the suspects facing federal charges in the case. in a separate ips dent, a woman was burned in a flag burning. at this point, we don't know if she was part of the flag burning or trying to put it out. we have been told the injuries are serious. both incidents occurring over the last hour alone.
charles ram say was at the helm during the last major security event in the city, the visit of pope francis. he has worn several hats over his five decade career. tonight, it was in the role of clinton supporter, advocate for gun and police reform. "action news" reporter held a one-on-one after the speech. these are causes close to ram y ramsey's heart. >> reporter: that's right, jim. this retired police commissioner was one of several speakers on gun violence and aiming for gun control. he focused on violence against police officers and the need to address that, too. >> i have too many officers killed by guns. >> please welcome charles ramsey. >> reporter: he took the stage at the democratic national convention to address the deep
divide between police and the communities they serve and the kill ls of the officers in dallas and baton rouge. >> people that are there protesting against the rights of police. you gun them down. there's no excuse for that at all. >> that makes you angry. >> sure, it makes me angry. >> reporter: families of victims of police shootings were invited to speak, but not families of police officers killed. hillary clinton is a leader that will protect police officers from being outgunned. >> she will work the streets and get trust between the police and the communities they serve. that's why she has my vote. >> reporter: we asked ramsey how to address the divide between the police and the communities they serve. >> be honest about what is going
on. don't say all the problems fall on the shoulders of police. police are here because of the violence. if black lives matter, they matter no matter who takes it. >> reporter: he retired but working in wilmington and cleveland. he's a distinguished fellow. you can see, he's still staying very busy. jim? >> thank you, dan. let's take a look now, live, at philadelphia international airport. you are looking at air force one. president obama has yet to arrive, but we expect he will do so shortly and he will depart philadelphia for joint base andrews after giving a speech that purely electrified the delegates here at the dnc. we have fixed that interview with vice president joe biden. again, we were fortunate to make our way through a sea of reporters who wanted to talk with the vice president. we were fortunate to be able to
talk to him one-on-one. so, let's listen in. >> mr. vice president, jim gardner from channel 6. >> jim, how are you? >> how are you, sir? good to see you. talk to me now. this was your victory. what kind of emotion did you have out there tonight? >> well, i -- i have trouble thinking that way. i mean there's so much more to do. kind of 26. i got something important to do and feel good about it. i plan on continuing to do that. all the things we talked about. i'm going to be deeply involved. >> what does hillary clinton have to say tomorrow night? what is her main task? >> she has to let people see her heart. see her heart. they know her head.
everybody knows how smart and how tough and resilient she is. i hope they get a glimpse of her heart. she really cares. it's not like, i want to be president and i will do anything to be president. she cares. i mean this is stuff she cares about. she talks about women and girls and talk about the notion of -- for example, foreign policy. she came over to talk about that once a week. when she talked about it, she said joe, did you see those kids? did you see the situation? did you see -- then she -- i want to see her heart. good to see you, jim. >> asking the russians to -- >> what about all that? i'm serious.
i don't think he consciously knows how much he is -- >> was that a serious remark? >> i can't figure. >> vice president joe biden, again, yes, the conversation about donald trump does continue to a significant degree here in philadelphia despite the democrats holding it tonight in south philadelphia. they come on "action news" tonight. wendy saltzman will join us live inside the democratic party hot spot where big name rockers are set to perform into the early morning hours and beach goers have to battle flooding conditions this afternoon at the jersey shore. >> you could see much more widespread flooding thursday night to friday night. flash flood watch posted as we say good-bye to the heat wave. details in the accuweather forecast. jim? >> jeff chirico has an update on the health of the eagles
