Donald Trump's campaign is calling Democrat Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention "an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric."

The statement issued Friday on Trump's campaign Facebook page says Clinton's stance on immigration "will take jobs, resources and benefits from the most vulnerable citizens of the United States and give them to the citizens of other countries."

Trump tweeted a link to the statement. It slams Clinton for not mentioning the words, "radical Islam," ''her disaster in Libya" or the investigation of Clinton's private email server.

The statement says Clinton's remarks were "delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today."

Clinton said Trump is offering America "empty promises" and what she called "bigotry and bombast."

Trump was also tweeting about other Democrats who criticized him from the DNC stage.

The Republican presidential nominee referred to former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, also a billionaire, as "Little Michael Bloomberg," who "never had the guts to run for president" and whose final term as mayor was "a disaster."

That's a reversal from 2012, when Trump praised Bloomberg for reducing crime in New York City, declaring, "That's leadership."

Trump attacked Allen, saying he "failed badly in his fight against ISIS." The former deputy commander of the wars in the Middle East had called Hillary Clinton the kind of "commander in chief America needs."

As for Clinton's claim that Trump can't handle a political campaign, he noted that he defeated a field of Republican hopefuls to win the GOP nomination.
