PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is praising Hillary Clinton and denouncing Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention.

O’Malley, who ended his bid for the party’s presidential nomination in February, spoke at the convention in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

He says Clinton will fight for people as president, while Trump won’t. O’Malley says the Republican nominee for president “feeds off of economic fears and failures.”

O’Malley told the convention hall “to hell with Trump’s American nightmare. We believe in the American dream.”

O’Malley dropped out of the race midway through vote-counting in the Iowa caucuses, after his campaign failed to gain traction against Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
