CLEVELAND -- After enthusiastically accepting his party's nomination for president, Donald Trump had his campaign go on the attack Tuesday night -- bashing Hillary Clinton and the current state of the economy on day two of the Republican National Convention.

"I welcome the opportunity to hold Hillary Rodham Clinton accountable for her performance and her character," shouted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Playing the attack dog didn't earn him the top spot in Donald Trump's veepstakes, but that didn't stop Christie from detailing the so-called email and dereliction of duty faults of Trump's Democratic presidential opponent.

Some of the loudest cheers on the floor of the Republican National Convention came during Christie's prosecution of Clinton he said on the facts.

Delegates shouted,  "Lock her up..lock her up!"

"Guilty! Guilty!"

The night was billed as "Make America Work Again," but that topic wasn't hit right away.

Felicia Tweedy, a California RNC delegate from Los Angeles, thinks the security spill-over still ties in.

"I think a lot of Americans don't know the facts and this is what's needed... to be laid out to the American people. You have this or you have that," she said.

"I believe the measure of a person is revealed in their darkest times," said Tiffany Trump, Donald Trump's daughter who just graduated from college.

She went on to say her dad's never done anything halfway.

Tiffany played the role of personalizer-in-chief on night two in Cleveland -- thrilling delegates who say the courage and poise she developed through her dad make him more presidential.

"He understands what the attributes are and how to empower someone and give them that kind of confidence," said Liz Ritchie, a California delegate from North Brentwood.

Then it was down to the business of business.

One San Diego delegate's been studying the numbers he believes Trump can fix.

"We have $17 to $19 trillion in debt that's generating $30 billion a month in interest payments that we're having to make to foreign ownership," said Michael Stoff.

Pro golfer and former Trump apprentice Natalie Gulbis from Granite Bay shared an economic lesson from the billionaire she says changed her life.

"Never fear challenging the status quo," she said.

"Why do I like Donald Trump?  Because he's iconoclastic. Why do I like Donald Trump? Because nobody knows what he can't do.  He can't be bought, he can't be intimidated," said the legendary promoter.

And from the GOP's namesake delegates heard about a life lesson that could change the way the American economy is managed.

"For too long we've been punting problems down the road. In business I was trained by my father to make the tough decisions today for a brighter future tomorrow," said Donald Trump Junior.
