Democratic National Convention: Day 1

News

At a time when democrats are supposed to be rallying, there is anger and tension within the party.
Hillary Clinton is making her pitch to voters this week amid a big shakeup. FOX News correspondent Joel Waldman has the latest details from the DNC in Philadelphia. 

Today’s theme at the convention is “united together” but it comes at a time when there is tension within the party.

On day one of the DNC, the streets of Philadelphia are filled with–not Hillary Clinton–but Bernie Sanders supporters. Many of them angry, after emails were leaked appearing to show the DNC had a pro-Clinton bias during the primaries.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wassermann Schultz, who plans to resign at the end of the week, was greeted with boos at Monday’s Florida delegation breakfast as she tried to stay on message.

“We must under President Hillary Clinton make sure that our economy works for everyone.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest defended Schultz’s accomplishments.

“She took the helm of the DNC at a critical point in time in President Obama’s career.”

While Bernie Sanders thanked his supporters for all they have done but asked them to vote for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine this fall.

“This is the real world that we live in. Trump is a bully and a demagogue.”

Meanwhile, Clinton is making her pitch to voters…at a VFW in Charlotte. 

“I’m interested in bringing everybody together, rolling up our sleeves and getting to work to solve our problems.”

Clinton is scheduled to address the convention and officially accept the nomination on Thursday night. 

In Philadelphia, Joel Waldman, FOX News.”
