The Donald Trump campaign derided night three of the Democratic National Convention, contending that “instead of dealing with reality,” top Democrats “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 on Wednesday night. “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% 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.”
Night three of the DNC featured speeches from Vice President Joe Biden, vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine, and President Barack Obama. Each slammed Republicans for presenting a dark vision of America during last week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Miller argued that Republicans were simply confronting America’s problems head-on, while Democrats were choosing to ignore them.
