Speakers after speakers at the Cleveland Convention, "would talk about the failures of the Obama-Clinton administration and setting up the issues in each of the relevant blocks that we're stressing tonight", Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort told reporters at a news conference.
Republicans have used the attack in Benghazi before to argue against Clinton, but, so far, social media reactions to Smith's Benghazi speech at the RNC show America is still very much divided. "It's about opportunities. Opportunities taken when we defied stand down orders and opportunities squandered when Hillary Clinton failed to protect her people on the ground", Tiegen said.
Clinton did not use the word "liar" to describe Smith, but during a primary debate on CNN, she did say Smith is wrong. "She deserves to be in stripes", she said.
But neither presented any evidence against then-Secretary of State Clinton, who was responsible for security at the Benghazi diplomatic facilities.
All this will be discussed during the course of the week "because all of them, we believe, relate to talking about how the system is not working", Manafort said.
As Republicans in Cleveland were criticizing Clinton on foreign policy, she hit Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump for his controversial language. "Donald Trump can not become president", she said to huge applause and delegates leaping to their feet.
"Hillary for prison", one woman near the back of the floor shouted repeatedly throughout the evening. Bob Dole (R-Kan.), the only living Republican presidential candidate to attend Trump's convention. "He is blunt, direct and strong", Smith said.
According to Pew, even most Republican voters, 79 per cent who did not support Trump through the primaries are backing him in the general election against Clinton. "He speaks his mind and his heart".
Clinton's remarks come among heighten tensions between police forces and many black and Latino Americans, who have been rallying in protests across the country against a spate of police killings of black men, often unarmed, during encounters.
Recent violence has cost the lives of eight officers, including those in Baton Rouge, and two civilians, and it has sparked a national debate over race and policing.
