Republicans kicked off their convention Monday night, laying out their pitch for another four years of President Donald Trump, celebrating the last four years and asking Americans for four more.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that “the best is yet to come.”
The convention began in Charlotte, North Carolina, by formally nominating Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. It then moved to Washington, D.C., to kick-start a four-night prime-time event.
While scaled-down due to the coronavirus, some of the president’s strongest supporters still came out in full force, including Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., who said his father will build the greatest economy the nation has ever seen.
Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to U.N., also spoke.
“Donald Trump has always put America first,” she said. “And he has earned four more years as president.”
Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden’s party is trying to permanently transform what it means to be American.
