Cleveland: The following is a selection of reaction on Twitter to New York billionaire Donald Trump's speech on Thursday accepting the Republican Party nomination for president:

Bernie Sanders, former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination

 

@BernieSanders

Trump: "I alone can fix this." Is this guy running for president or dictator?

Laura Ingraham, conservative host of the Laura Ingraham Show

@IngrahamAngle

This is @realDonaldTrump broadening the base of the GOP. The inner city will no longer be neglected. They have suffered under Obama.

Stephen King, author

@StephenKing

That wasn't a convention. It was something closer to a lynch mob. Republicans, you should hang your heads in shame.

Ari Fleischer, former White House spokesman for President George W. Bush

@AriFleischer

For everyone saying this speech is "too dark", remember - 69pc of the nation thinks the USA is on the wrong track. Many will agree w Trump.

 

Hillary Clinton, Democratic presidential nominee

@HillaryClinton

We are better than this.

David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan

@DrDavidDuke

Great Trump Speech, America First! Stop Wars! Defeat the Corrupt elites! Protect our Borders! Fair Trade! Couldn't have said it better!

 

Garry Kasparov, former world chess champion

@Kasparov63

I've heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn't sound any better in Russian.

Michelle Malkin, conservative blogger

 

@michellemalkin

Trump is addressing the real concerns of people ignored outside the Beltway by both parties. Elites find this "depressing," apparently.

Meghan McCain, daughter of Republican Senator John McCain

@MeghanMcCain

The party I was part of is dead.

Michael Cohen, Boston Globe columnist

 

@speechboy71

This is the bleakest, darkest, most fascistic speech I've ever heard delivered by an American politician

Bill Kristol, founder of the conservative magazine The Weekly Standard

@BillKristol

Trump's speech wasn't a speech in the normal sense, with pace & rhythm & argument. It was a shouted series of assertions. Which might work.
