Hillary Clinton addresses Tampa voters, ‘love trumps hate’ full speech transcript

HILLARY CLINTON:  “Now, look, I think many of us felt that those speakers, including of course their nominee, were not talking about the country we know and love.  They weren’t talking about the work people do every day, the opportunities we try to seize, neighbors helping neighbors.  I didn’t hear any of that.  Instead, I heard about Donald Trump’s dark and divisive vision.  Last night’s speech took it to a whole new level.  He offered a lot of fear and anger and resentment, but no solutions about anything that he even talked about.

He didn’t have a jobs program, did he?  All that talk about keeping people safe; I didn’t hear any plans about what he’s going to do to support our police, to make sure that we are all working together.  You could listen to that speech and you could think, my goodness, he believes America is in decline.  And I’ve got to say, as he said this last night, I was pretty shocked.  He said, ‘I alone can fix it.’  Now, just think about that for a minute, because it’s really important.  His vision of America is one where we Americans are kind of helpless, we need to be rescued.  I can’t really imagine him on a white horse, but – that seems to be what he’s telling us:  ‘I alone can fix it.’  Well, he doesn’t understand that Americans, we Americans, we are strong, big-hearted, results-oriented, generous people in America.
