Democrats con­verge on Philadel­phia for Clin­ton nom­i­na­tion

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

US Democrats con­verge on the City of Brotherly Love to el­e­vate Hil­lary Clin­ton this week as the party’s nom­i­nee who will bat­tle Repub­li­can Don­ald Trump in 2016’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

The Democratic Na­tional Con­ven­tion kicks off today in Philadel­phia with the party more uni­fied than the Repub­li­cans, whose fis­sures were laid bare this week as they con­firmed brash bil­lion­aire Trump as their flag­bearer. But frus­tra­tions are nev­er­the­less swirling as del­e­gates bicker about the Democratic nom­i­nat­ing process and new hic­cups over Clin­ton camp emails.

“Next [this] week in Philadel­phia we will of­fer a very dif­fer­ent vi­sion for our coun­try,” she pledged. “One that is about build­ing bridges, not walls, em­brac­ing the di­ver­sity that makes our coun­try great.”
