Hillary Clinton spoke to a packed house at the Brooklyn Navy Yard tonight, as she clinched the Democratic nomination for President.

Standing under a glass ceiling, she noted that they hadn't shattered that one, but one had been shattered nevertheless.

After commending Bernie Sanders on the race he won, she turned to Donald Trump.

"We believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls," Clinton declared.

Turning to Trump, Clinton laid it bare. "Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be President and Commander-In-Chief," she said. "And he's not just trying to build a wall between American and Mexico, he's trying to wall off Americans from each other.

She called his slogan, "Make America Great Again," code for sending America back.

She went on to speak of her mother, and how proud she would be, and more.

Bernie Sanders will be speaking sometime after 10 PM Pacific time. We will monitor his speech as well.
