ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said during a campaign speech in Iowa on Thursday that he wanted to "hit" some of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. "I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard," Trump said. "They were really saying bad things about me. I was going to hit one guy in particular. A very little guy. I was going to hit this guy his head would spin," Trump said. Trump did not specify whom he was referring to. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave a speech the night before urging Independents and Republicans alike to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. In his speech, he slammed Trump for his name and his business. Clinton made history on Tuesday when she became the first woman to secure the presidential nomination from a major party. When she formally accepts it on Thursday, she will become the Democratic standard-bearer against Republican nominee Trump in the Nov. 8 election. At the convention on Wednesday, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine accepted the Democratic vice presidential nomination. Obama and Clinton were rivals in the hard-fought campaign for the 2008 Democratic nomination. After winning that election, he appointed her his secretary of state.
