Another South Asian element in her speech was a tribute to Army Captain Humayun Khan, a 27-year-old Pakistani-American army man killed in 2004 in Iraq trying to save his soldiers from a car bomb.
Clinton cited Khan to hit out against Trump's threats to temporarily suspend Muslim immigration while determining how to vet them.
Earlier in the closing programme, Humayun Khan's father, Khizr Khan, was one of the speakers. "You are asking Americans to trust you with their future," he challenged Trump. "Let me ask you, if you have read the US Constitution?" He said that his son would never have been able to serve the US had Trump been the President. "We will become stronger when Clinton becomes President."
