Trump, who said he watched her speech Thursday night "out of curiosity," said it would have been great if she congratulated him for his primary victories. 

"I was curious to see whether she would do a class act and not mention my name or mention it with respect," Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. 

He said, imitating Clinton, "I would like to congratulate my Republican opponent for having something that nobody has ever done in the history of politics in this nation. And I would like to congratulate my opponent for having gotten more votes than anybody in the history of the Republican Party in the primary season." 

"I thought she might do something like that. I thought she'd give me a big, fat, beautiful congratulations. If she did that, wouldn't that be cool? Wouldn't that be great?" 

But Clinton instead took aim at her presidential rival in her acceptance speech. 

"Imaging him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons," she said.
