US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appears to be enjoying the Republican Convention in Ohio, tweeting the past compliments she has received from various GOP speakers attending the 18-21 July 2016 event.

After it emerged that several Republican speakers at the event had attacked Clinton over various issues including safety, terrorism and Benghazi, the Democrat candidate responded by tweeting praise she has had from Republicans.

She began by tweeting a picture of former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani, who gave a fiery speech at the convention, praising Trump and hitting out at Clinton over Benghazi, also suggesting she had not done enough to secure the country's borders.

The image of Giuliani was caption: "I think she is doing a good job... I have tremendous respect for her."

Clinton followed this up by sharing images of Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, captioned: 'we're good friends', and one of senator Shelley Moore Capito, captioned: "Senator Clinton showed the country that women are ready and able to lead".

The Democrat candidate also shared a number of tweets regarding the GOP's economic plan and questioned the suitability of Trump and his VP running mate Mike Pence to lead the country.

Clinton mentioned the pair's opposition of the minimum wage, support of de-funding Planned Parenthood and lack of commitment to fighting climate change.

She also laid into the party's platform, which has drawn criticism from within its own ranks, questioning the idea of a wall between the US and Mexico, its failure to protect children from LGBT conversion 'therapy' and attack on non-traditional families.

The GOP's LGBT group, Log Cabin Republicans, has itself attacked the Republican Party's platform adopted at this convention, stating in a press release the platform committee had included: "Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of 'pray the gay away' – it's all in there."

The GOP convention is set to close on 21 July, while the Democrat Convention takes place from 25-28 July.
