On Monday Republican Party formally nominated President Trump for the second term at Republican National Convention, according to USA Today. An in-person roll-call of 336 delegates opened the night in Charlotte, North Carolina, and selected President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence to face the Biden-Harris ticket on November 3rd. The President appeared on the stage while the audience was chanting “four more years.” “If you want to really drive them crazy, say twelve more years,” Trump said before his opening statement.
The President started his speech with a warning about voter fraud with regard to wide-spread mail-in voting, as Fox News reported. “Bad things happened last time with the spying on our campaign … and this time they’re trying to do it with the whole Post Office scam … be very careful and watch it very carefully,” he said. Trump accused Democrats of trying to steal the election by using the Covid pandemic to push universal mail-in voting. He also addressed his administration’s record on economy and unemployment, as well as highlighting his plans for the next term, including the development of coronavirus vaccine and treatment. “We’re coming up with it like nobody’s ever seen before.”
A spokesman for the Biden campaign, Andrew Bates, slammed President Trump during Fox News interview. “What they [voters] will hear from Donald Trump this week are the last thing our country needs: more desperate, wild-eyed lies and toxic division in vain attempts to distract from his mismanagement,” he said.
The Republican National Convention themed “Honoring the Great American Story,” will last for four days. Each night will be focused on American exceptionalism for being “Land of Promise,” “Land of Opportunity,” “Land of Heroes” and “Land of Greatness.” Several prominent conservative speakers are expected to be featured with a few surprising guests as Trump hinted recently.
