Promoting national unity, Clinton also seeks to build trust

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hillary Clinton has capped off a four-day Democratic Party convention celebration with a plea for national unity and tolerance. Now, one of the most divisive and distrusted figures in American political life must convince voters that she rather than Republican rival Donald Trump can bring a deeply divided nation together.

Clinton’s convention speech Thursday night in Philadelphia aimed squarely at undercutting Republican nominee Donald Trump.

The first female presidential nominee heads off on a bus tour through two Rust Belt battlegrounds, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The shoot-from-the-hip billionaire believes he can make headway in those states with blue-collar white men.

Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine will speak about economic opportunity, diversity and national security, themes hammered home during their party’s convention.
