Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump assailed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in a blistering series of tweets  Thursday evening.

“He loses his cool at the slightest provocation,” she said. “When he’s gotten a tough question from a reporter. When he’s challenged in a debate. When he sees a protester at a rally,” Clinton said during her speech. “Imagine 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.”

Clinton’s speech targeted Trump consistently, “He wants to divide us — from the rest of the world and from each other,” Clinton said. “He’s betting that the perils of today’s world will blind us to its unlimited promise. He’s taken the Republican Party a long way, from ‘Morning in America’ to ‘Midnight in America.’ He wants us to fear the future and fear each other.”

Trump responded swiftly and harshly, tweeting, “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.” Another tweet followed, “Hillary will never reform Wall Street. She is owned by Wall Street!”

Trump continued the assault Friday morning, criticizing the news coverage as well as Clinton’s speech. “Crooked Hillary Clinton made up facts about me, and ‘forgot’ to mention the many problems of our country, in her very average scream!”

The Trump campaign posted an official statement on its facebook page tearing into the presidential candidate’s speech. Hillary Clinton’s speech was 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,” the campaign said in the statement. “It’s a speech delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today.”
