In the tweet, Clinton quoted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said of Clinton in 2010: "I think she is doing a good job. ... I have tremendous respect for her."

The Republican National Convention kicked off Monday.

Giuliani spoke shortly before Clinton's tweet, as part of the GOP's theme of "Make America Safe."

In his speech, the former New York City mayor tore into Clinton's "vicious, nasty campaign."
