At Republican National Convention, Trump Ready To Rumble in Prime Time

    The Republican National Convention started Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina with President Donald Trump dropping by in the afternoon for comments. But the real message will kickoff prime time Monday night at 8:30 p.m. (EST). President Trump spoke of last week's Democratic National Convention and previewed his own convention: "Four straight days attacking America, as a racist, horrible country that must be redeemed... Joe Biden grimly declared a season of American darkness, but look at what we've accomplished, until the plague came in, and look, we're doing it again."

    The president said the GOP would showcase "what we've accomplished" and his administration as "the most successful period of time in the history of the country."

    Trump asked supporters to "reject the anger and the hate of the Democrat party" and said that "no party can lead America that spends so much time tearing down America... I think we're going to have more of it live than what they [the DNC] did," Trump said on Fox News Thursday night. "I think it's pretty boring when you do tapes. I'm going to go live and do mine live."

    "The president's convention is going to be about real people. I'm a real mom. I don't play one on TV," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. "The president's going to talk about real families, real people, what's affected their lives, how his policies have made lives better and then what the future holds for America. It's going to be more aspirational, less grim."

    Vice President Mike Pence also gave a preview of the convention: "We're going to talk about what this president has done to revive this economy, rebuild the military, strengthen the constitutional liberties with conservatives to our courts at every level," Pence said Friday in an interview on Fox News. He also said the Democrats have "been overtaken by the radical left and while they didn't talk about it very much, their agenda is higher taxes, socialized medicine, open borders, abortion on demand."

    On Sunday the Trump campaign revealed the roster of speakers for the convention. The list includes members of the Trump family. They will appear each night and include First Lady Melania Trump, the president's children — Ivanka, Tiffany, Donald Jr., and Eric — and Eric's wife Lara Trump.

    Other speakers at the podium over the four nights will be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Rep. Dan Crenshaw ( R-TX), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and UFC president Dana White.

    Monday night will feature Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), former Ambassador Nikki Haley, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones (D), Amy Johnson Ford, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Natalie Harp, Charlie Kirk, Kim Klacik, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Sean Parnell, Andrew Pollack, Donald Trump, Jr. and Tanya Weinreis. The lineup and the proposed program should be an optimistic and bracing antidote to last week's Democrat odd anti-American snore-fest.
