CLEVELAND, July 21 (UPI) -- Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus fired up delegates at the party's convention Thursday night, saying Democrat Hillary Clinton would treat the Oval Office as "just another cash cow."

Priebus charged that Democrats are a stale political party offering more of the same policies that have led many Americans to feel economic stagnation and fear greater terrorist threats.

"The dirty little secret Democrats don't want you to know is they're the same old party doing the same old thing," he said. "Next week, they are going to trot out the same old Democrats with the same old message running the same old candidate. We are the party with new ideas. ... We are the party of the grassroots. We honor what the people say."

By contrast, he said, Republican nominee Donald Trump is poised to return American prosperity and dignity for the middle class.

"Donald Trump is the right man to lead that charge," Priebus said. "Donald Trump wants to make sure you can pay the mortgage, put food on the table and buy new clothes for the first day of school."

Like many speakers at the GOP convention, Priebus heavily criticized the former secretary of state as a corrupt politician who has put her own interests ahead of the country's.

"She lied, over and over and over and over. She lied. She lied. Perhaps worst of all, Hillary Clinton has perfected the art of politics for personal gain," Priebus continued. "She reads ethics rules as carefully as Americans read their junk mail.

"Her family foundation took millions of dollars in donations from countries notorious for human rights abuses and funneling money to radical Islamic terrorists. For Hillary Clinton, the Oval Office is just another cash cow."
