The Donald Trump campaign derided the third night of the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia and issued a lengthy response to those who gave speeches during the evening declaring, ‘Tonight was a sad night for the Democratic party.’
The statement which was written by senior policy advisor Stephen Miller, says that all of the night’s speakers that saw Joe Biden, Tim Kaine, and President Obama take to the podium, ignored the real problems facing Americans and showed how disconnected they are.
‘Instead of dealing with reality,’ the statement says, ‘they spoke in cheap, petty terms beneath the dignity of a convention.’
‘Tonight was a sad night for the Democratic Party,’ Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller said in a statement. ‘They offered no solutions for the problems facing America – in fact, they pretended those problems didn’t even exist.’
He added: ‘They described a vision of America that doesn’t exist for most Americans, including the 70 percent of Americans who think our country is on the wrong track. Never has a party been so disconnected from what is happening in our world.’
‘Instead of dealing with reality, they spoke in cheap, petty terms beneath the dignity of a convention,’ he said. ‘Their entire message could be summed up as: things are perfect, let’s not change a single thing.’
Miller continued: ‘So they resorted to the politics of fear, trying to convince Americans not to vote for change – they spoke on behalf of the big banks and the big elites, not on behalf of suffering Americans. They want to keep the system rigged for their donors. Period. Rigged trade deals, a rigged economy, and open borders that benefit the few at the expense of the many.’
The third night of the Democratic National Convention saw rousing speeches from vice president Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Barack Obama.
All the speakers portrayed Republicans as presenting a dark vision of America during their own national convention in Cleveland last week.
Miller went onto point out that the Republicans were happy to confront America’s problems head on, while Democrats were chose to ignore them.
Trump also seemingly attempted to criticize the speech former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg delivered, in which he called Trump a ‘con man’ and critiqued Trump’s record of bankruptcies and lawsuits filed by former employees who claimed they weren’t paid.
After Bloomberg’s speech, Trump’s campaign sent out excerpts of a Fox News op-ed titled, ‘Why Michael Bloomberg’s Latest Push For Gun Control Is All Wrong’ that argued Bloomberg was spending too much money to advocate for gun control.
