Donald Trump calls Joe Biden's speech 'just words' as he abandons months of attacks on his rival's cognitive ability to question his record in government after Democrat flames his record and says 'character is on the ballot'

President Donald Trump abandoned his normal all-caps attacks on his rival Joe Biden's mental fitness to say all the Democrat was promising was 'just words.'   
'In 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!' Trump tweeted as the Democratic nominee closed out his speech. 
Biden concluded the four-day Democratic convention by flaming Trump's record, telling Americans that 'character is on the ballot.'  
One hour before Biden accepted the nomination, Trump called in to Fox News' Sean Hannity in one of a series of appearances intentionally clashing with the closing night of the Democratic National Convention in efforts to draw interest away from his rivals.

The president took aim at Biden claiming his Democrat rival will 'kill our country and kill the economy' if he gets in to power. 
'You could forget about the Second Amendment if we lose this election,' he blasted. 
'And your taxes will be doubled, tripled and quadrupled. Your jobs will be gone. I mean, you're going to have a depression, if that happens.
'The biggest single headwind [to the stock market] is if he got in.'
Trump also blasted Biden's competence saying he would not be a match for 'very sharp' foreign leaders like North Korea's Kim Jong-un, China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin.
'If you're not at the top of your game, it's not going to be a pretty picture,' he said. 
'It's like chess masters. And if you're not a great chess master, you're going to have a problem.'

Biden positioned himself as the candidate who was the side of goodness, empathy, and inclusivity in his speech Thursday night, as he reminded viewers of the livestreamed convention about Trump's words following the racial unrest in Charlottesville in 2017 and his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. 
'Compassion is on the ballot. Decency, science, democracy. They are all on the ballot,' Biden said. 
'Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us not the worst,'he pledged. 
'I will be an ally of the light not of the darkness.'
He concluded his remarks by saying, 'love is more powerful than hate.'  
'Hope is more powerful than fear. Light is more powerful than dark,' Biden said. 
'May history be able to say that the end of this chapter of American darkness began here tonight as love and hope and light joined in the battle for the soul of the nation,' he stated.  
And while much of what Biden said during the address, where he properly accepted the Democratic nomination, he had said in his stump speeches, he put a new polish on it.  
He addressed a darkened room, filled only with reporters and some staff, using a teleprompter, with lines under some words - likely the trick Biden taught a young stutter-er who appeared earlier in the convention to talk about how the ex-vice president had become his mentor.

One night earlier, Trump was blasting former Democratic President Barack Obama, who had delivered a more blistering indictment of the president's record.
'HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, AND GOT CAUGHT!' Trump roared. 
'WHY DID HE REFUSE TO ENDORSE SLOW JOE UNTIL IT WAS ALL OVER, AND EVEN THEN WAS VERY LATE? WHY DID HE TRY TO GET HIM NOT TO RUN?' Trump wrote. 
Biden also concluded the DNC in a Trump-ian fashion - with supporters and a made-for-TV moment. 
He walked to the parking lot outside to greet supporters who had parked cars to view the night's programming like they were at a drive-in movie theater. 
They honked, yelled and held up signs and American flags as Biden and his wife Jill and his running mate Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff watched fireworks overhead. 
'Welcome to Wilmington,' Biden said, grinning, as he had pulled down his mask.
