New Delhi: Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination from her party’s presidential nomination. While addressing the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Hillary said "It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America's promise that I accept your nomination for President of the United States." 

She told the Americans that nation is facing a "moment of reckoning" as powerful forces are trying to tear it apart.

Taking a jibe at Donald Trump, Clinton said "Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes," Clinton said. "Most of all, don't believe anyone who says: 'I alone can fix it,'" a reference to Trump's acceptance speech last week.

Clinton is now officially a rival of Republican nominee Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States.
