Hillary Clinton has officially made history.

During the final night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Clinton accepted her party’s nomination to be the next President of the United States. Clinton has become the first woman to be the nominee of a major political party.

After being introduced by daughter Chelsea Clinton, the former Secretary of State addressed the crowd in Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center for about an hour. The presidential hopeful made sure to discuss the importance of her historic nomination.

“Standing here as my mother’s daughter, and my daughter’s mother, I am so happy this day has come,” she said, according to The Los Angeles Times. “I’m happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between.”

During the speech, Clinton laid out her vision for America and stated that she would be a president for every type of citizen.

“I will be a president for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For the struggling, the striving and the successful. For those who vote for me and those who don’t. For all Americans. Together,” she told the audience.

Clinton also made a few jabs at her GOP rival, Donald Trump, along the way. As she has frequently done throughout the campaign, she stated that Trump’s temperament makes him unfit to be the president.

“Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons,” Clinton said.

The morning after Clinton’s historic speech, Trump released a statement, where knocked her for “talking down” to the public.

“Hillary Clinton’s speech was an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric. She spent the evening talking down to the American people she’s looked down on her whole life,” Trump’s said in the statement.

He continued, “It’s a speech delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today.”

With both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions wrapped up, the next major moment in the 2016 Presidential Race takes place at the first debate on Monday, Sept. 26.
