Democratic National Convention Day Three: Obama argues ‘America is already great, America is already strong’

On the third day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention:

President Obama drew a strong contrast between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tonight, targeting what he sees as Trump’s inability to serve as commander in chief.

• Vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine used his speech to excoriate Donald Trump and lift up Clinton, offering remarks in both English and Spanish

• The Wikileaks-DNC email release still looms over the convention and early in the evening the organization released voicemails harvested by hackers from the Democratic National Committee

• National security was the main theme of the day, and Donald Trump took an extraordinary step ahead of the program, calling for Russia to steal Hillary Clinton’s emails.
