The Trump campaign issued this statement earlier today, “President Trump’s 2020 Convention will honor the great American story, the American people that have written it, and how President Donald J. Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda has empowered them to succeed.”
President Donald Trump marks the occasion by traveling to the battleground state of North Carolina, where Republican officials have been holding meetings all weekend. Trump is expected to thank delegates after they vote to formally re-nominate him for a second term.
Political conventions are supposed to be about the party, their platforms, and those who made the party great. But this Republican convention will be about Trump only. According to Republican organizers, Trump is expected to appear every night leading to Thursday night when he officially accepts the nomination. He is expected to tout how great he is and how much he has accomplished singlehandedly with no help or assistance from no one. As usual, expect Trump to speak about how much better Americans are for his tutelage, and how he is the only thing standing between the America he made great and the anarchists who want to destroy it.
Tonight the following people will speak at the virtual convention:
Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana
Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida
Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones
Amy Johnson Ford
Mark and Patricia McCloskey
Donald Trump Jr.
Expect the convention to be about Trump only and Making America Great Again. As usual, we expect Trump to lie about his records, his opponent, his accomplishment, and of course, the state of the union. Unlike the Democrat convention, this convention will not be about Americans; it will not be about ideas and inclusivity. It will be about business as usual: hates, divisiveness, fear, and lies, but it is guaranteed to be funny.
