The president took the flag- festooned stage on the White House lawn on the final night of the RNC after many inspiring speeches and an introduction by his daughter, Ivanka, to accept the Republican nomination for president. He eulogized his brother, Robert, who recently passed away and thanked Vice-President Mike Pence before accepting the nomination.
In a speech lasting more than an hour, President Trump pressed the need for law and order and called out the left for their hatred of the country. He wondered out loud how the Democrat party could lead the country when they spend so much time tearing it down?
The 2020 RNC was notable because, unlike the 2016 convention, the new Republican party threw their full support behind President Trump. Noticeably absent were old guard Republicans like the Bush family, the McCains, Mitt Romney, and the rest of the “never-Trumpers” that are now endorsing Democrat Joe Biden for president.
One great line from a speech was that the Republican party didn’t change Trump, Trump changed the Republican party. The Republican party feared what Candidate Trump would do to the Republican party, but it turns out that that party needed some reformation, and President Trump brought that about.
Many pundits counseled that President Trump should let others in the convention praise him and his accomplishments, and that is exactly what happened.
All four nights of the convention were replete with speeches endorsing the president and his policies. Senators, Congresspeople, ordinary Americans, pardoned felons, riot widows, a nun, and the president’s impressive and accomplished family all took to the microphone to support President Trump and his quest to put America first and praise him for all that had been accomplished so far.
Sister Dierdre Burn M.D. praised the president for being the most pro-life president ever. Alice Johnson, a beneficiary of the president’s criminal justice reform program, effusively praised the First Step Act and said that it was by the grace of God and the compassion of President Donald John Trump that she was free.
Many new Republican stars spoke about their support for the president, including the hard-working House members that fought persistently and tenaciously for justice for President Trump during Nancy Pelosi’s deceitful attempt to impeach him in fall 2019. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Martha Blackburn (R-TN), and Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) all spoke. Young Republicans seeking office expressed their appreciation and support for the president, too. Kimberly Klacik, whose campaign ad in Baltimore recently went viral, was there, and Madison Cawthorn, 25 and a paraplegic running for the 11th district in North Carolina expressed his support for President Trump and America.
A consistent theme of the convention was the existential threat of a Biden presidency. Patrick Lynch, the president of the New York Police Benevolent Association warned, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” Former New York mayor, Rudy Guliani, called the Democrats’ policies, “pro-criminal, anti-police” and socialist.
Another theme present throughout all four nights was faith in God. Many of the speakers openly affirmed their faith in God and Jesus Christ, including the president himself, and thanked God and implored God to guide Americans through the difficult times the US faces. President Trump said, “We don’t look to career politicians for salvation… we put our faith in almighty God.”
Great lines, too many to mention, came from the president’s speech, but here are two of them. In reference to the “deep state,” he said, “Remember this, they spied on my campaign and they got caught.” And finally, the best line of the night:
“The fact is I am here…the fact is we’re here, and they’re not.”
