Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine in Miami



Hilllary Clinton introduced Tim Kaine as her running mate today in Miami, calling him "everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not."

She cast Trump as a dictator-like figure who thinks he can fix American alone. "We Americans solve problems together and if Donald doesn’t understand that, he doesn’t understand America," Clinton said.

Kaine continued the attacks on the Republican and the suggestion Trump was a despot.

"When Donald Trump says he has your back, you better watch out," Kaine said. The Virginia senator joked that many people don't know him and sketched his background, family story and experience in politics.

He also spoke fluent Spanish, learned while he worked with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras. "Seremos compañeros de alma en esta gran lucha por venir."
