Before she makes history and speaks for the first time since being named the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary released excerpts of her DNC speech. She will say that the country faces a ‘reckoning,’ but she will work hard to make the USA ‘freer, fairer and stronger.’ Click to read.
Hillary Clinton, 68, is about to have the biggest moment in her political career, as she smashes the glass ceiling that has kept women from running for the White House. The Democratic Party’s nominee, and rival to the GOP’s Donald Trump, 70, gave a preview of her July 28 speech, according to ABC News, letting fans know what they can expect.
“America is once again at a moment of reckoning,” the former Secretary of State plans to say. 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. 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.”
Further excerpts Include:
“So I want to tell you tonight how we’re going to empower all Americans to live better lives. My primary mission as President will be to create more opportunity and more good jobs with rising wages right here in the United States. From my first day in office to my last. Especially in places that for too long have been left out and left behind. From our inner cities to our small towns, Indian Country to Coal Country. From the industrial Midwest to the Mississippi Delta to the Rio Grande Valley.
“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.
“Every generation of Americans has come together to make our country freer, fairer, and stronger. None of us can do it alone. That’s why we are stronger together.”

This is just a small sampling of what the American voting public will hear about Hillary. Will she drag Donald Trump the same way he dissed her at the Republican National Convention? Can she give speech that leaves the ones delivered by President Barack Obama, 54, and her husband, Bill Clinton, 69, in the dust? She’s scheduled to speak at 10:20 PM EST, so tune in to find out.
