Donald Trump had a lot to say after Hillary Clinton accepted her nomination as the Democratic presidential candidate Thursday night.

The social media-loving businessman kicked off his rhetoric earlier in the day, saying the Democrats were living in a “fantasy world” in a statement released just before Clinton’s acceptance speech.

“In the Democrats’ fantasy world, there is no problem with Hillary Clinton maintaining an illegal, exposed server full of classified information that could have been hacked by any foreign enemy, and in which Hillary Clinton risked prison time to delete 33,000 emails that were simply about yoga and wedding planning,” he said in a statement released on his official Facebook page.

Clinton took aim at Trump during her speech Thursday, at one point even addressing his Twitter style directly.

“A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons,” she said to the crowd.

Later, Trump took to that very medium to share his reactions to the speech in a series of tweets posted late Thursday night.

Six posts were sent out within the hour, accusing his opponent of corruption and calling her out on topics like her relationship with Wall Street and comments – or lack thereof – about radical Islam.

He ended the series of tweets in typically blunt fashion: “No one has worse judgment than Hillary Clinton – corruption and devastation follows her wherever she goes.”

On Friday morning, the Trump campaign issued a new statement on Clinton’s acceptance speech, deriding her words as delivered from a “fantasy universe.”

“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,” said the statement, adding later that “it’s a speech delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today.”

Does Donald Trump Rattle You?

Trump’s comments come just days after Clinton made history earlier this week when she was officially named the first female major-party nominee for president at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Trump was officially named the GOP presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention on July 19.
