PHILADELPHIA — Donald Trump attacked Hilary Clinton with a rapid-fire string of tweets moments after her speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night. 
 
“Hillary’s refusal to mention radical Islam, as she pushes a 550% increase in refugees, is more proof that she is unfit to lead the country,” Trump tweeted minutes after Clinton wrapped up her speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination. 
 
{mosads}He hit Clinton repeatedly for being soft on terror, a favorite attack by Republicans. 
 
The GOP nominee added that Americans’ “way of life is under threat by Radical Islam and Hillary Clinton cannot even bring herself to say the words.”
 
Clinton faced protests during her speech, though they were frequently drowned out by chants of “Hillary.” 
 
Trump also hit Clinton over her role in the Obama administration, saying, “Hillary’s wars have unleashed destruction, terrorism and ISIS across the world.”
 
Progressives remain wary of Clinton’s foreign policy because of her vote for the Iraq War, which she has since called a mistake.
 
Trump also knocked Clinton on the economy, saying the world would have corruption and  “no borders, no jobs, no safety” under her administration. 
 
Trump’s senior policy adviser Stephen Miller echoed the businessman’s complaints, calling her speech “an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric.”
 
“She spent the evening talking down to the American people she’s looked down on her whole life,” Miller added.
 
“Hillary Clinton says America is stronger together. But in Hillary Clinton’s America, millions of people are left out in the cold.”
