New York billionaire Donald Trump has officially accepted the Republican nomination as US presidential candidate, pledging that he will restore "law and order" in the country, and lead his party back to the White House.

In his acceptance speech in the US city of Cleveland on Thursday, Trump promised to "put America first", while tearing into his presumptive Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, for her legacy of "death, destruction, terrorism and weakness".

"Let's defeat her in November," Trump thundered, as his supporters repeatedly shouted back, "Lock her up!"

From Libya to Syria, Trump said Clinton's foreign policy record made the US less secure, adding that during her time as secretary of state, Clinton allowed the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS). 

Trump also warned of a "moment of crisis" facing the country, from attacks on police and "terrorism in our cities".
