Day 1 of the Republican National Convention — 8/24/2020


we come together tonight to imagine a


determined by the shining light of our

hopes and values

and faith


a country where we are judged by our

character with dignity and respect for



the belief that all are created equal

that lives matter irrespective of race

creed or color committed to excelling

beyond our dreams

limited only by our imaginations where

rugged individualism and american


inspire the best in each of us

and when we see injustice to one we act

to fix it for all

this is our story we journey together


we stand in a breach to preserve a way

of life that while imperfect

has brought prosperity honor and dignity

to generations past

and will for generations to come


four years ago we faced an historic


career politicians promising change

every election

but delivering emptiness

we chose a different path a man who is

not a politician

a man who cares a man who loves america

and all americans a man who works


for you even tonight during this


the results jobs were created

embracing the undeniable greatness of


prosperity safe communities

protecting and serving caring for one


still politicians spun their deceptions

and obstructed progress

fanning the flames of lawlessness we all

know that it is easy to criticize

it takes a true leader to solve problems

covet 19 while others criticized without


president trump's swift action saved


and as leading democrats want to keep

businesses closed down

our president is leading the way for a

full economic recovery

we are america despite unpredictable


we as americans work together to

overcome challenges

write our own stories the legends for

our posterity

america land of promise

land of opportunity land of heroes

land of greatness join us

over the next four nights as we write

the next chapter of our journey

and share our vision as the greatest

country with the greatest citizens

that attain the greatest achievements

from washington d.c welcome to the 2020

republican national convention

tonight celebrating america as the land

of promise


let us pray and pray

we must as grateful citizens of a


we boldly claim to be one nation

under god pray we must

praising the lord for a country where

freedom of religion is so cherished


where both republicans and democrats

begin their conventions

heads bowed in prayer

pray we must conscious of those

suffering from covet

and those unwearied front liners who

care for them

and all of us pray we must that all

lives may be protected

and respected in our troubled cities in

the police who guard them

intense world situations where our men

and women in uniform keep the peace

for the innocent life of the baby in the


for our elders in nursing care and

lives threatened by religious

persecution throughout the world are

by plague hunger drugs human trafficking

or war

pray we must in thanksgiving in

i pledge allegiance to the flag of the

united states of america and to the


for which it stands one nation under god

indivisible with liberty and justice for



good evening it is an honor to be with

you tonight

my name is charlie kirk i run the

largest pro-american student

organization in the country

turning point usa fighting for the

future of our republic

speaking to you in my personal capacity

tonight as a 26 year old

i see the angst of young people as well

as the challenges

facing new parents i am here tonight to

tell you

to warn you that this election is a

decision between preserving america as

we know it

and eliminating everything that we love

for decades ruling class leaders in both


sold out our future to china to faceless


and to self-serving lobbyists they did

it to preserve their own power

and enrich themselves all while rigging

the system

to hold down the good decent middle

class patriots

striving to build a family and pursue a

decent life

all of this changed dramatically in 2015

when a billionaire named donald trump

put his own life of luxury on the line

from that moment he came down that

famous escalator

he started a movement to reclaim our


from the rotten cartel of insiders that

have been destroying

our country we may not have realized it

at the time

but trump is the bodyguard of western

civilization trump was elected to

protect our families

from the vengeful mob that seeks to

destroy our way of life

our neighborhoods schools churches

and values president trump was elected

to defend

the american way of life the american

way of life

means you follow the law you work hard

you honor god you raise your kids with

strong values

and you work to create a civil society

the american way of life means you speak

your mind

without retribution without being kicked

off social media by a self-righteous


in silicon valley it means you can

freely practice your religion

and that church is more essential than a


and it means that we judge people on

their actions

not on their immutable characteristics

the american way of life is being

dismantled by a group of bitter

deceitful vengeful activists who have

never built

anything in their lives they have us

locking up pastors

while releasing violent criminals from

prison we are kicking doctors off of

social media

yet promoting chinese state-funded

propaganda on major

tech platforms this election is the most

critical since 1860

when a man named lincoln was elected to

preserve the union

from disintegration this election is not

just the most important of

our lifetime it is the most important

since the preservation of the republic

in 1865. by reelecting trump we will

ensure that our kids are raised

to love our country and respect its

founding fathers

not taught to hate or be ashamed of them

we will build monuments to heroes not

burn down our cities

we'll be a country that rises to higher

heights that dreams big

thinks big and achieves the impossible a

country that values our remarkable

journey the complexities of our past

but clearly communicates to the next


that we have to be grateful not

angry that we live in the united states

we will be a country that makes it

easier to have

many children live quiet and peaceable


and worship your god without a tyrant


in the way we will be a country that has

its best 100 years ahead

we will build a future where america

remains the greatest country

ever to exist in the history of the

world all of that

is within our grasp if we secure four

more years

for the defender of western civilization

our champion

my friend the 45th president of the

united states

president donald j trump


i'm rebecca friedrichs a veteran

california public school educator

i'm here to give voice to america's

great teachers

because our voices have been silenced

for decades

by unions who claim to represent us

they do not when other dedicated

teachers and i

served within the unions we spoke up in

defense of children

parents scientific fact and american


for our trouble we were brutalized booed

off the platform

barred from committees shouted down

and even spit upon by union leaders

this is how unions treat devoted


but what's even worse is how their

agenda of control

deceives americans and our children

they've intentionally rewritten american


to perpetuate division pervert the

memories of

our american founders and disparage our

judeo-christian virtues

their lenient discipline policies

morphed our schools into war zones

and they back defunding police and

abolishing ice

unions collect billions annually from

unsuspecting teachers

and push this radical agenda into our


against our will why

the only way to keep a free republic is

with a well-educated

moral citizenry that can self-govern

unions are subverting our republic so

they undermine

educational excellence morality law

and order that's why they spend

hundreds of millions annually to defeat

charter schools

and school choice trapping so many


low-income children in dangerous corrupt

and low-performing schools to fight back

on behalf of children and america brave

teachers brought a lawsuit against


and do you know who intervened against


the obama biden administration and

california attorney general

kamala harris they argued against us

at the u.s supreme court their comrades

labeled us spawns of satan

and slandered us in mainstream media

no matter their abuse we'll keep

fighting for the country and children we


just like president trump he's breaking

the union's

grip on our schools that's why unions

have tried to destroy him

since the day he was elected but

president trump isn't afraid to fight

for what's right

he won't back down his courage gives

great teachers

renewed hope he's even proposed

education freedom scholarships

to return control to parents protect

religious liberties

and empower kids to escape dangerous

low-performing schools

the republican platform supports

educational freedom

the democrat party does not

democrats stand with deceptive teachers


who pick on loving teachers and little


president trump stands with america's


great teachers and most importantly our


so america's great teachers let's stand

with president trump

in protection of the kids and country we



i am so grateful to speak with you today

my name is tanya weinrice i am from

montana where i live with my husband

my hero a marine and retired police


my husband and i own mountain mud

espresso we are not some multinational


our success is not measured by


but by our neighbors the people we see

at church

and at jiu jitsu school with our son

mountain mud espresso is the american


a story not just for entrepreneurs but

for millions of hard-working

men and women who are building their

american dream every day

a few months ago like so many businesses

we got the crushing news

a large event we were serving was

cancelled because of the virus

our business was on the brink threatened

to be shut down

from losses that were not our fault

i was scared i thought of our 50


the mountain mud family and when i

thought of their jobs i thought of their

rent being due

they're kids and i felt personally


i'm not too proud to admit that i fell

on my knees and prayed

lord what do i do his words rang clear

keep on working it will be okay

i had faith and let me tell you you have

to have faith when your husband is a


and a police officer who is shot at on

the job

and when you run a business a little

faith goes a long way

faith in jesus and faith in america

but i'm worried we have a generation of

americans who have been told that the

american dream

doesn't exist that's a lie

i know because i live that dream it's

why i feel so strongly

that we need a president who believes in

the american dream

like president donald trump now more


ever i am so thankful that my

prayers for help were answered my

company was one of the first to receive

a ppp

loan and praise god it has been a


not only were we able to keep every

single employee but we've been hiring


ever since i feel for local businesses

across america who are under assault


shutdowns from riots and now facing the

terrifying prospect of joe biden

coming after everything we've built

i am so grateful we have leaders like

president trump

standing up for local businesses like


thank you president trump it is exciting

to be part of the great american

comeback story

i'm congressman matt gates i'm speaking

to you from an auditorium

emptier than joe biden's daily schedule

but we are a nation of full hearts and

clear minds

we see the choice clearly strength or


energy or confusion success or failure

president trump is the first president

since reagan not to start a new war

biden has foolishly cheerled decades of

war without winning

without end president trump knows we are

strongest when we fight hardest

not in distant deserts but for our

fellow americans

we must fight to save america now or we

may lose her forever

joe biden might not even notice settle

for biden

that's the hashtag promoted by aoc and

the socialists

the woktopians will settle for biden

because they will make him an extra in a


written produced and directed by others

it's a horror film really

they'll disarm you empty the prisons

lock you in your home

and invite ms-13 to live next door and

the police aren't coming when you call

and democrat-run cities they're already

being defunded

disbanded blaming our best and

allowing society's worst that's the

story they write in hollywood

that's if the lights even stay on in

california anymore

a state that cannot keep power running

for its own people

should not send its junior senator to be

vice president

they used to write only in fiction but


are becoming real cops killed

children shot at the democrat convention

they say

if you vote against trump it will all


appeasement is never a winning strategy

no we won't settle for violence in our

neighborhoods or at our border

we won't settle for decades of bad

decisions by basement dwelling joe biden

we settle a continent we know that the

frontier the horizon

even the stars belong to us donald trump

like all builders

is a visionary that which is built in

the mind is

even more powerful than the brick and

mortar that holds it together

first comes the mind then the making

first comes the vision

then the work washington lincoln and

jefferson are immortal

precisely because of the pull they have

on our imagination

you cannot cancel a culture that loves

its heroes

the dangerous left need america to be

weaker to accomplish their goal of

replacing her

we know that to make america great again

we must first make something

of ourselves that is the meaning of true


my great-grandfather was a railroad man

as a florida man i watch our rockets

routinely send

the brightest beyond the heavens with

our flag and our hope

america is the greatest country that has

ever existed

don't let any celebrity athlete or

politician tell you otherwise

president trump sometimes raises his

voice and a ruckus

he knows that's what it takes to raise

an army of patriots

who love america and will protect her

we must win this election if we cherish

our country as much as we should

for there is no place to run no refuge

for freedom should we fail

america is not just an idea or a


it is our home we must protect our home

with unbreakable made in america


strength i see every day in president

donald trump

thank you

my name is kim klasik and i'm running

for congress in maryland 7th district

and like shirley chisholm i'm unbought

and unbossed

let me remind you the democrats have

controlled this part of baltimore city

for over 50 years

and they run this beautiful place right

into the ground

abandoned buildings liquor stores in

every corner drug addicts guns on the


that's now the norm in many

neighborhoods you think

maryland taxpayers would be getting a

whole lot since our taxes are out of


instead we're paying for decades of

incompetence and corruption

sadly the same cycle of decay exists and

many of america's democrat-run cities

and yet the democrats still assume that

black people will vote for them no

matter how much they let us down and

take us for granted

we're sick of it we're not going to take

it anymore

the days of blindly supporting the

democrats are coming to an end

in baltimore we have the highest number

of black republicans in the entire

country running for

office this election cycle joe biden

believes we can't think for ourselves

that the color of someone's skin

dictates their political views we're not

buying the lies anymore

you and your party have neglected us for

far too long we want safety in our


we want to make the most of the federal

opportunity zone i'm standing in right

now in west baltimore

we want higher paying jobs and more

business opportunities

we want lower taxes we want school

choice we want a chance to get ahead not

just get by

that's what president trump promised and

that's what president trump delivered

i want baltimore to be an example to

republicans around the country

that we can compete in our inner cities

if we reach out to the citizens and

deliver real results

president trump is bringing this country

back roaring

he's bringing the american spirit to

life for all americans

so i'm asking you to help president


complete this great american comeback

and then i'm asking you

to help me start this great baltimore

comeback thank you and god bless america


good evening i'm ronna mcdaniel

chairwoman of the republican national


and on behalf of everyone in our party

and president trump

thank you for tuning in as we kick off

this historic

convention as we speak to you tonight

we send our thoughts and prayers to

those facing terrible fires in


recovering from storms in iowa and

preparing for hurricanes

in louisiana and the gulf coast

democrats started their convention last

week with eva longoria

a famous hollywood actress who played a

housewife on tv

well i'm actually a real housewife and a


from michigan with two wonderful kids in

public school

who happens to be the only only the

second woman in 164 years to run

the republican party and unlike joe


president trump didn't choose me because

i'm a woman

he chose me because i was the best


for the job four years ago president

trump started a movement

unlike any other and over the next four

days we will hear from a few of the

millions of hard-working

everyday americans who have benefited

from his leadership

if you watched the dnc last week you

probably noticed

that democrats spent a lot of time

talking about how much they despise our


but we heard very little about their


policies policies that would have been


a decade ago policies like banning

fossil fuels

eliminating private health insurance

taxpayer-funded health care for people

who come here

illegally and defunding the police

their argument for joe biden boiled down

to the fact that they think

he's a nice guy well let me tell you

raising taxes on 82 percent of americans

is not nice eliminating

10 million good paying oil and gas jobs

is not nice policies that force jobs to

flee our country

or allow abortion up until the point of


are not nice the truth is

there's only one person who has

empathized with everyday americans

and actually been fighting for them over

the past four years

and that is president donald trump

in the nearly four years i've worked on

behalf of president trump

i've seen up close a man who has a deep

love for family

a man who has reverence for the office

of the presidency

a man with an incredible respect for law

enforcement in our military

i've seen private moments where he

comforts americans

in times of pain and sadness

now everyone knows he can be tough he's

tough when he takes on china

tough when he works to fix our unfair

trade deals

tough when he fights to secure our

borders president trump

is always going to be tough when he is

fighting for the american people

because nice guys like joe cared more

about countries like china and iran

than the united states of america


begins a new chapter in the great

american story

a story that has inspired the world for


and when we reelect president trump

this november the best is yet to come

our lifetime

i didn't back down from my promises and

i've kept every single one


this current administration had made

hope possible

we want this nation to continue to

be the beacon of hope for the world how

many people

said they're going to leave america if

donald trump was elected

they're all still here and they're not

going anywhere because we

are in the land of the free we will


ever sign bad trade deals

america first again america

first america's great usmca trademark

this is a big win for the united states

of america this is a great trade deal we

are going to lift the restrictions

hope to me is the belief in a better


and creating a better future for our


when i look in the eyes of my

grandchildren i want them to know that

their papa

from failing schools by helping their

parents send them

to a safe school of their choice

constitution why supporting law

enforcement is so important for keeping

america great

as long as i'm president i will never

defund your police that i promise you

it's time to deliver a victory

for the american people we are going to


winning again

it's called promises made promises



my name is amy ford i've been a

registered nurse for 17 years

i'm from the small town of williamson

west virginia where i've lived my entire


the daughter of a nurse and a coal miner

even though i was the youngest of four

children i was always somewhat of a


it came natural for me so it felt right

to follow in my mother's footsteps and

become a nurse

and this march when coveted 19 sent our

country into crisis

i knew i had to help any way that i

could i deployed to new york in april

and then to san antonio texas working as

a covert relief nurse

in both states as i contended with the

challenges of treating our patients

who had their worlds turned upside down

i noticed a positive change in our

health care system

president trump recognized the threat

this virus presented for all americans

early on

and made rapid policy changes and as a

result telehealth services are now


to more than 71 million americans


35 million children prior to covid

telehealth was not covered or reimbursed

under medicare medicaid or chip

this left our most vulnerable

populations with no other choice

but to have an in-person office visit

with their physicians

increasing their risk of exposure to

covenanting exponentially

the expansion of telehealth services has

also resulted in the integration

of video visits between patients and

their families

allowing loved ones to have contact and


as well as a better understanding of


telehealth has been essential during

this pandemic

i don't want the media taking my

personal story and twisting it

so let me be clear as a healthcare


i can tell you without hesitation donald

trump's quick action and leadership

saved thousands of lives during


and the benefits of that response extend

far beyond coronavirus

telehealth will continue to aid many

that are just unable to find


or away to the doctor for regular


this is especially true in rural america

i live in a town of about 2 000 people

we do not have buses

trains trolleys or ubers available to us

in addition the unavailability of

services can also hinder treatment for


so increased access to telehealth for

millions of americans

has truly been life-saving and we have

president trump to thank

from the very beginning democrats the


and the world health organization got


wrong the world health organization said

authorities have found no clear evidence

of human to human transmission

overall most people should not be

terribly concerned about everything is

fine here we do want to say to people

come to chinatown

here we are come join us we don't even


it's going to be as bad as it was in

other countries go about your lives go

about your business

one leader took decisive action to save


president donald trump banning travel

from china and coronavirus epicenters

biden charged xenophobia but president

trump was right

signing the cares act providing

immediate relief to american families

workers and businesses declaring a

national emergency

tapping into 42 billion in existing

emergency funding

quickly getting crucial personal

protective equipment to the states

signing the family's first coronavirus

response act

ensuring that american families and

businesses impacted by the virus

receive the strong support they need


operation warf speed to fast track a

vaccine in record time

he said everything that i could have

hoped for promise made

promise kept he is ready willing and

able to help

he has been responsive he's done a lot

of good things

what the federal government did was a

phenomenal accomplishment

in our hour of need you all literally

are helping us in a big way

we were at the edge and this is life or

death stuff and we're forever thankful

for that

soon we will emerge safer stronger

and greater than ever

i am dr g e golly an oral and

maxillofacial surgeon

and chancellor of a large academic

medical and research center in louisiana

i feel uniquely positioned to share how

president trump's

decisive leadership led to a rapid and

efficient response to the coronavirus


i know this as a health professional and

as someone who has recovered from covet


the covet 19 pandemic exploded into our

great nation

with an intensity unparalleled in


but our medical investigation and drug

development systems

were not designed for a pandemic the

devastating effects of the coronavirus

demanded immediate changes

at the regulatory level a prompt


led by president trump cleared away the

red tape that usually makes drug

approvals a long and drawn out process

by harnessing the resources of the

federal government

in the private sector president trump's

operation warp speed

is accelerating the testing supply

development and distribution

of therapeutics diagnostics

and very shortly effective vaccines to

counter covid19

let me give you three clear examples

of how president trump's leadership

removed regulatory barriers

so covet patients could have faster

access to effective therapies and


first on february 26 two

phase three clinical trials studying rem


were initiated just two months later

the fda approved room desevere for

emergency use to treat covet 19.

normally this is a three to five year


the amazing speed with which this

happened in a safe

but efficient manner is unheard of

second the fda granted expanded access

to covet 19 convalescent plasma

within 24 hours of this approval we were


convalescent plasma and room desevere to

a critically ill patient

a former army ranger and physician

had it not been for the rapid deployment

of these medicines

this patient who is my colleague and


would have surely died and third

at the end of july i developed a fever

and cough

i reached out to our testing team and

received one

of the abbot rapid tests yet another

tool quickly approved by this


within 15 minutes my test came back


and within four hours i was receiving my

room desevere doses

followed by an infusion of convalescent


as a physician i've seen firsthand how

these breakthroughs have saved countless


as a patient i've benefited from the

expedited therapies made possible by the

swift action of this administration

president trump truly moved mountains to

save lives and he deserves credit

thank you president trump for providing

timely access

to critical diagnostics and therapeutics

during this pandemic

thank you mr president for your strong

leadership in these challenging times

when the china virus invaded our country

we launched the greatest mobilization of

american society since world war

ii patriots of every race color and

creed rallied together to defeat the

invisible enemy

and save the lives of their fellow

citizens today our hearts overflow with


for the incredible front-line workers

who risked their own health and safety

to keep america strong and safe

when crisis came millions of everyday

americans rose to the challenge

in their actions we see true greatness

of the american character

good evening i'm congressman jim jordan

representing the fourth district of ohio

the republican party is the pro-america

party president trump is the pro-america


this election is about who can preserve

the values principles

and institutions that make america great

don't believe me

look at what's happening in american

cities cities all run by democrats

crime violence and mob rule democrats

refuse to denounce the mob

and their response to the chaos defund

the police

defund border patrol and defund our


and while they're doing all this they're

also trying to take away your guns

look at the positions they've taken the

past few months democrats won't let you

go to church

but they'll let you protest democrats

won't let you go to work

but they'll let you riot and democrats

won't let you go to school

but they'll let you go loot president

trump has fought against each of their

crazy ideas

he's taken on the swamp all of the swamp

the democrats

the press and the never trumpers and

when you take on the swamp

the swamp fights back they tried the

russia hoax

the mueller investigation and the fake


but in spite of this unbelievable

opposition this president has done what

he said he would do

taxes cut regulations reduced economy


lowest unemployment 50 years out of the

iran deal embassy in jerusalem hostages

home from north korea

a new u.s mca agreement and of course

he's building the wall

and rebuilding our economy as we speak i

love the president's intensity and his

willingness to fight

every day in washington for our families

but what i also appreciate about the


is something most americans never get to

see how much he truly cares about people

our family has seen it two years ago our

nephew eli was killed in a car accident

he lived a mile up the road from us grew

up wrestling and training with our boys

was a high school state champion varsity

athlete for the university of wisconsin

it's a saturday morning three days after

the accident

i walked to the car to head up to eli's

parents home when the president called

we talked about a few issues and then he

asked how the family

was doing i said they're doing okay mr

president but it's tough

the president said yeah losing a loved

one is always difficult

and it's really tough when they're so

young i then said mr president i'm

actually walking into their house right


obviously they don't know that i'm

talking to you but if you'd be willing

to say hello to eli's dad

you'd make a terrible day a little less

terrible what's his name the president


i walked through the door and said todd

the president wants to talk to you

for the next five minutes family and

friends sat in complete silence

as the president of the united states

took time to talk to a dad who was


that's the president i've gotten to know

the last four years

the president who shared private moments

like this with soldiers

victims of violent crime and people

who've had businesses destroyed by the


that's the individual who's made america

great again and who knows america's best

days are still in front of us

and that's why i'm busting my tail to

help him get reelected

i'm asking you to do the same thank you

and god bless our country

i'm not an actor a singer or a


i'm hershel walker most of you know me

as a football player

but i'm also a father a man of faith

and a very good judge of character i've

known donald trump for 37 years

and i don't mean just casual ranting to

him from time to time

i'm talking about a deep personal


i watched him as an owner of a

professional football team

right after he bought the team he set

out to learn

he learned about the history of the team

the players the coaches

every detail then he used what he

learned to make the team better

i watched him in the board room he can

be in the middle of a big meeting

but if one of the kids was on the phone

he dropped everything to take the call

he taught me that the family should be

your top priority

i watched him treat janitors security

guards and waiters

the same way he retreated vip he made

them feel special

because he knew they were he understands

that they are the people who make this

country run

they clean they cook they build they


they deliver he told me herschel

make an effort to get to know people

remember their names

that stuck with me one time i planned to

take his kids to disney world with my


at the last minute donald said he'd like

to join us

so they was in a business suit on uh

it's a small world ride that was

something to see

it just shows you what a caring loving

father he is

it hurt my soul to hear the terrible

names that people call donald

the worst one is racist i take it as a

personal insult that people would think

i've had a third or seven year

friendship with the races

people who think that don't know what

they're talking about

growing up in the deep south i've seen

racism up close

i know what it is and it isn't donald


just because someone loves and respects

the flag our national anthem and our


doesn't mean they don't care about

social justice i care about all those


so does donald trump he shows how much

he cares about social justice in the


community through his actions and his

actions speaks louder than stickers or

slogans on new jersey

he keeps right on fighting to improve

the lives of black americans

and all americans he worked night and


he never stops he leaves nothing on the


some people don't like his style the way

he knocks down obstacles that get in the

way of his goals

people on the opposing team like when i

ran over them either

but that's how you get the job done i

pray every night that god gives him more


give him four more years he has

accomplished so much

almost all by himself on a constant


but there's still more work to be done

if you love america and want to make it


donald trump is your president he's my


and i'm blessed to call him friend

good evening i'm natalie harp a formerly

forgotten american from california

in the classic jimmy stewart film it's a

wonderful life

george bailey is given a great gift the

chance to see

what the world would be like without him

tonight mr president

we'd like to give you that same gift

because without you

we'd all be living in pottersville sold

out to a crooked mister

or i should say a crooked mrs potter

with no hope of escape except death

itself i should know

because i wouldn't be alive today if it

wasn't for you

about five years ago i was a victim of a

notoriously deadly medical error

i survived but only to be diagnosed with

a rare

and terminal bone cancer you know the

democrats love to talk about health care

being a human right

but a right to what well i'll tell you

to them it's a right to marijuana


and the right to die with dignity a

politically correct way of saying

assisted suicide

i was told i was a burden to my family

and to my country

and that by choosing to die early i'd

actually be saving the lives of others

by preserving resources for them rather

than wasting them on a lost

cause like myself and when i failed the

chemotherapies that were on the market

no one wanted me in their clinical

trials i'd make them look bad

they didn't give me the right to try

experimental treatments mr president

you did and without you i'd have died

waiting for them to be approved

now with the coronavirus everyone knows

what that feels like to be waiting

for a cure but we've only been waiting a

few months just

imagine what 2020 would have looked like

fighting for your life

without donald trump fighting for it too

in january there would have been no

china travel ban

millions would have died millions more

would have been infected

for there be no record levels of testing

no right to try

treatments no fast track for a vaccine

nor operation warp speed ready to

deliver it

and without donald trump as our patient

advocate for the past four years

well the opioid epidemic would have

stolen even more lives from even more


kidney patients would have no future


dying on wait lists for there be no

initiative to increase donations

there'd still be no accountability at

the va and our brave veterans would

still be suffering long wait times with

no choice

nor access to faster care insulin and

other drug prices would have continued

to rise

while a record number of generic drugs

would still be stuck in the pipeline

there'd be no price transparency we

wouldn't have health plans up to 60

percent cheaper than obamacare

and we'd still be stuck with that

infamous individual mandate

and god forbid what the next four years

would look like

for in joe biden's america china would

control our drug production

we'd be one step closer to

government-run health care

we wouldn't just be unable to keep our

doctors we'd be lucky if we could see

any doctor

and even then some of us would be denied


for in socialized medicine you don't

beat the odds

you become the odds and i would lose my

right to try

just like charlie gard that terminally

ill british baby

whose government-run health care system

decided it was too expensive

and too cruel to keep him

alive you see mr president you've done

so much more than your promises made

and promises kept for numbers only tell

part of the story

we are the rest of it facts with faces

of americans who would still be

forgotten if you

and our favorite first lady hadn't given

up your own wonderful life

so we could have the chance at one

george bailey's father was right

all you can take with you is that what

you've given away

and mr president that makes you the

richest man in the world

for you have used your strength to make

america strong again

sacrifice the life you built to make

america proud again and you risked

everything to make america safe again

it's a wonderful life you made america

great again

and on november third we are going to


america great


hello america my name is vernon jones

and i'm a state representative

from the great state of georgia as you

can see

i'm a man of color and i'm a lifelong

democrat too

you may be wondering why is a lifelong

democrat speaking

at the republican national convention

and that's a fair question

and here's your answer the democratic

party does not want black people

to leave their mental plantation we've

been forced to be there

for decades and generations but i have

news for joe biden

we are free we are free people with free


and i'm part of a large and growing

segment of the black community

who are independent thinkers and we

believe that donald trump

is the president that america needs to

lead us forward

this is no time for sleeping in the

basement joe biden has had

47 years to produce results

but he's been all talk and no action

just like so many of the democrats

who've been making promises

to the black voters for decades we've

been their captive audience

when president trump sought to earn the

black vote

the democratic party leaders went crazy

nancy pelosi and chuck schumer literally

started wearing kente cloths around

the u s capital as if

pandering were enough to keep us


let me tell you why i'm supporting our


i grew up in the south in laurel hill

north carolina

scotland county the green pond community

to be exact

my parents robin and roofer jones built

with their own hands

a four-room cinderblock home with no

indoor plumbing

they had very limited education but they

instilled in us

a strong work ethic that drove me from

those tobacco fields of north carolina

to those hallowed halls of the georgia

general assembly

my parents taught me if i believed in


worked hard and treated every person


there was no limit to what we could


i attended north carolina central


and historical black college for


hbcus have been the incubators that

develop black scholars

in math and science and religion


and politics they have been imported


for the black success but democrats

haven't treated them that way

when president trump took office he

changed everything

he delivered historic funding to hbcus

and he guaranteed it for 10 years

something that has never happened

in the history of this country that gave

our hbcus

stability the chance to grow and produce

the next generation of black leaders

that's right

donald trump did that he's also

supported school choice to ensure that

no child

no matter their race or zip code is left

behind every child should have access to

a quality education

but education is just the beginning the

president also built the most

inclusive economy ever with record low

unemployment for african americans

and record high participation in the


he put opportunity zones in the trump

tax bill

that would drive investment into our

communities for decades to come

he put the interest of american workers

and especially

black workers first that's right

donald trump did that

he delivered historic criminal justice


he ended once and for all the policy of


of black people which has decimated our


caused by no other than joe biden

democrats wouldn't do it obama

didn't want to do it and joe biden and

kamala harris definitely wouldn't do it

but donald trump did it he's also


every day to make our community safer as

a former

executive of dekalb county georgia

i directed one of the largest public

safety departments in the southeast

i seen tragic shootings on both sides

officers killing citizens and citizens


officers in the line of duty

police officers are fellow citizens they

live in our country

they have families too they live in our


unfortunately democrats have turned

their backs

on our brave police officers they call

it defunding

and it's a danger to our cities our


and our children isn't it ironic

that democrat politicians have personal


to protect them so why don't they forego

their security and replace them with

social workers

especially since that's what they want

for you and me

our police need more funding not less

for frequent psychological examinations

for non-lethal remote

restraint technology and for more


and use of force training these are the

common sense solutions

that president trump supports true

sincere police reform that's right

donald trump did that too education

jobs safety security

on issue after issue and in just

a single term he destroyed these

negative forces that have victimized

the black community for decades

he gave us the opportunity to rise

now you know when i made the public

announcement of my support for president


all hell broke loose i was threatened

called an embarrassment and asked to


by my own party unfortunately

that's consistent with the democratic


and how they view independent thinking

black men and women but i'm here to tell


that black voices are becoming more woke

and louder than ever

the democratic party has become infected

with a pandemic of intolerance

bigotry socialism

anti-law enforcement bias and a

dangerous tolerance for people

who attack others destroy their property

and terrorize our own communities

that's what this election is all about

and that's why right now more than ever

more than ever before america needs

donald trump in the oval office for

another four years

god bless you and vote donald j trump

thank you


in 2018 a gunman walked into marjory

stoneman douglas high school in parkland


and changed my life forever my name is

andrew pollock

his name isn't worth saying

one of the seniors walking in the

hallways that day was my beautiful


meadow she was just months away from

graduating and beginning a new life

we were so proud of the woman she had


but in the hallway on that third floor

the gunman saw meadow

and shot her down the hallway hitting

her four times

after she was shot and on the floor she

crawled over to another student

a freshman girl to protect her

she draped her body over her and then

the scumbag gunman

shot my daughter at point blank range

five more times

killing meadow and the girl she was


she had a whole life ahead of her and in

that life

she could have done anything and been


so many moments that i waited so long

for were taken from me

i didn't get to drop her off at college

i didn't get to walk her down the aisle

but every moment was taken from her and

for what

i never wanted this to become a

political spectacle but it did

i never wanted to meet the president

like this but i did

i was invited to the white house the

truth is i

just buried my daughter that week i

really wasn't interested in public

events like a tour or a photo

op i was interested in answers and


so if the president wanted to meet me

personally i said i'd go

they said of course that was his plan

at the white house my family and i sat

with the president in the oval office

and told him about meadow

i told him what we knew i told him that

his administration

needed to take a closer look at what

went wrong and why

and i got to see who president trump

really is

he's a good man and a great listener and

he cuts through the bs

then the president did what he said he

would do he took action

he formed the school safety commission

that issued dozens of recommendations to

make schools safer

but i'll bet you never heard about that


the media turned my daughter's murder

went to a coordinated attack on

president trump

republicans and our second amendment

in fact when president trump asked me

and other parents of children

that were murdered in school shootings

to join him as he announced the

commission's findings

the media's first question wasn't about

protecting kids

shockingly they asked about the

government shutdown

president trump turned to me appalled

and said andy

can you believe these people we're

trying to talk about school safety

and this is what they do but i could

believe it

after my daughter's murder the media

didn't seem interested in the facts

so i found them myself i learned that

gun control laws didn't fail my daughter

people did the gunman had threatened to

kill his classmates before

he had threatened to rape them he had

threatened to shoot up the school

every red flag you could imagine but the

school didn't just miss these red flags

they knowingly ignored them

far left democrats in our school

district made this shooting possible

because they implemented something they

called restorative justice

this policy which really just blames

teachers for students failures

puts kids and teachers at risk and makes


more likely but it was billed as a

pioneering approach to discipline and


i was just fine with the old approach to

discipline and safety

it was called discipline and safety but

the obama biden administration took

parkland's bad policies

and forced them into schools across


when president trump rescinded obama's

guidance on restorative justice policies

he put an end to that and that meant the

world to me

it's hard to tell how much mr biden

understands about what happened at


mr biden has campaigned on bringing back

restorative justice

as part of as part of his unity platform

with bernie sanders and has pledged to

implement in school districts across

america but he doesn't even seem to know

when the shooting happened

he said that he was vice president when

it happened but he wasn't

mr biden may not know when my daughter

was murdered but i do

february 14 2018

mr biden may not know that these

policies make shootings more likely but

i do

mr biden may not know who was vice

president that day but i do

it wasn't joe biden it was mike pence

thank god and i know who the president

was too

it wasn't barack obama it was president

donald j

trump and he took action

i truly believe the safety of our kids

depends on whether this man is reelected

i hope you'll join me in helping to make

that happen

mr president myself and millions of

americans appreciate you and love you

god bless america and god bless our

president donald j

trump thank you

a curfew not effect for the city of

saint louis protests in saint louis

turned violent

mark mccloskey says he and his family

have been threatened with violence

under missouri law you have a right to

defend your home and the lives of your

family research warrant has been

executed at the home of mark and

patricia mccleskey

the husband and wife attorneys charged

with pointing guns at protesters

they were simply trying to protect their

home good evening america

we are mark and patty mccloskey we're

speaking to you tonight from st

louis missouri where just weeks ago you

may have seen us

defending our home as a mob of

protesters descended on our neighborhood

america is such a great country that not

only do you have the right to own a gun

and use it to defend yourself but

thousands of americans will offer you

free advice on

how to use it at least that's what we


what you saw happen to us could just as

easily happen to any of you

who are watching from quiet

neighborhoods around our country

and that's what we want to speak to you

about tonight

that's exactly right whether it's the

defunding of police

ending cash bail so criminals can be


back out on the streets the same day to

riot again

or encouraging anarchy and chaos on our


it seems as if the democrats no longer

view the government's job

as protecting honest citizens from


but rather protecting criminals from

honest citizens

not a single person in the out of

control mob you saw at our house

was charged with a crime but you know

who was

we were they've actually charged us with


for daring to defend our home

on top of that consider this the marxist

liberal activist leading the mob to our


stood outside our home with a ball horn


you can't stop the revolution just weeks


that same marxist activist won the

democrat nomination

to hold a seat in the u.s house of


in the city of st louis that's the same

as winning the general election

that marxist revolutionary is now going

to be

the congresswoman from the first

district of missouri

these radicals are not content with

marching in the streets

they want to walk the halls of congress

they want to take over

they want power this is joe biden's


these are the people who will be in

charge of your future and the future of

your children

they're not satisfied with spreading the

chaos and violence

into our communities they want to

abolish the suburbs altogether

by ending single-family home zoning this

forestry zoning would bring crime

lawlessness and low-quality apartments

into now thriving suburban neighborhoods

president trump smartly ended this

government overreach

but joe biden wants to bring it back

these are the policies that are coming

to a neighborhood near you

so make no mistake no matter where you


your family will not be safe in the

radical democrats

america at this moment in history

if you stand up for yourself and for the

values our country was founded on

the mob spurred on by their allies in

the media

will try to destroy you you've seen us

on your tv screens and twitter feeds

you know that we're not the kind of

people who back down

thankfully neither is donald trump

president trump will defend the

god-given right

of every american to protect their homes

and their families but more than that

trump's vision for america

is a country where you have an

opportunity to work hard

and build the life you dream of with a

job you love

with your children being educated in

great schools

in a community where your family can

play in the backyard without fear

worship in a church without shame and


your beliefs without retribution

trump brought us the greatest economy

our country had ever seen

the democrats have brought us nothing

but destruction

when we don't have basic safety and

security in our communities

we'll never be free to build a brighter

future for ourselves

for our children or for our country

that's what's at stake in this election

and that's why we must reelect donald


god bless you god bless the president

and god bless you the united states


good evening america i'm kimberly


i speak to you tonight as a mother a

former prosecutor

a latina and a proud american

and yes a proud supporter of president

donald j

trump why because he is the

president who delivers for america

he built the greatest economy the world

has ever known

for the strivers the working class and

middle class

as commander-in-chief he always puts

america first

president trump is the law and order


now presidential leadership is not


it is a choice biden harris and the rest

of the socialists will fundamentally


this nation they want open borders

closed schools dangerous amnesty and

will selfishly

send your jobs back to china while they

get rich they will defund

dismantle and destroy america's law


when you are in trouble and need police

don't count on the democrats

as a first generation american i know

how dangerous their socialist

agenda is my mother mercedes

was a special education teacher from

aguadilla puerto rico

my father also an immigrant came to this

nation in pursuit of the american dream

now i consider it my duty to fight to


that dream rioters must not be allowed

to destroy our cities

human sex drug traffickers should not be

allowed to cross our border

the same socialist policies which


places like cuba and venezuela

must not take root in our cities

and our schools if you want to see the


biden harris future for our country

just take a look at california

it is a place of immense wealth

immeasurable innovation

an immaculate environment and the

democrats turned it into a land of

discarded heroin needles and parks

riots and streets and blackouts and


in president trump's america we

light things up we don't dim them down

we build things up we don't burn them


we kneel in prayer and we stand

for our flag

this election is a battle for the soul

of america

your choice is clear

do you support the cancel culture

the cosmopolitan elites of nancy pelosi

chuck schumer and joe biden

who blame america first do

you think america is to blame

or do you believe in american greatness

believe in yourself

in president trump in individual and

personal responsibility

they want to destroy this country

and everything that we have fought for

and hold dear

they want to steal your liberty your


they want to control what you see and

think and believe so that they can


how you live

they want to enslave you to the weak


liberal victim ideology to the point

that you will not recognize this country

or yourself

from the beginning when president trump

spoke about making

america great again he was speaking

about that shining city on a hill

and restoring the beacon of light that

once shined

so bright his promise was to put

america first and he has

when president trump cut middle-class


putting tens of thousands of dollars

back in the pockets of working-class


that beacon began to flicker once again

when president trump commanded the

defeat of isis

took out al-baghdadi and solemni and

paved the way for peace in the middle


that beacon started to glow when he

negotiated historic trade deals with


mexico japan and china bringing back

thousands of manufacturing jobs to


that beacon shined bright once again

for the world to see america

it's all on the line president trump

believes in you

he emancipates and lifts you up to live

your american dream you are capable

you are qualified you are powerful and

you have the ability

to choose your life and determine

your destiny don't let the democrats

take you for granted

don't let them step on you don't let

them destroy your families your lives

and your future

don't let them kill future generations

because they told you and brainwashed


and fed you lies that you weren't good


like my parents you can achieve your

american dream

you can be that shining example to the


manifest and be the change in this

country that you dream

that you hope that you believe in

stand for an american president who is


who believes in you and who loves this

country and will fight for her president

trump is the

leader who will rebuild the promise of


and ensure that every citizen can

realize their

american dream ladies and gentlemen

leaders and fighters for freedom and

liberty and the american dream

the best is yet to come

i'm congressman steve scalise we're

facing some tough challenges in america

this isn't the first time we've been

here i've worked closely with donald

trump over the last few years

and if there's one constant theme to how

he approaches problems

it's how much he cares about the

hard-working people that washington left

behind i've seen this firsthand

after i was shot on a baseball field by

a leftist gunman

first responders rushed me to a hospital

where i battled for my life

that same night donald trump came to the


along with first lady melania trump they

consoled my wife jennifer

they were there for my family in my

darkest hours

donald trump would call to check on me

throughout the following weeks just to

see how i was doing

that's the kind of person he is that's

the side of donald trump that the media

will never show you

look there's a lot at stake this is an

election between a party that wants to

burn down the foundations of our country

to the ground

and a party that wants to rebuild and

protect our great nation

the left wants to defund the police this

is personal to me

i wouldn't be here without the bravery

and heroism of the men and women in law

enforcement who saved my life

president trump stands with those brave

men and women

joe biden has embraced the left's insane

mission to defund them

there won't be an america to leave to

our children and grandchildren

without those brave law enforcement

officers and first responders

joe biden's made a career in washington

for 47 years

promising things he's never delivered in

just three short years

president trump has delivered huge wins

for american families

while joe biden made hollow promises

when he chaired the senate judiciary


donald trump took action and delivered

criminal justice reform

joe biden claims to care about the

working man but

millions of good manufacturing jobs were

shipped overseas during the obama-biden


to countries like china donald trump

brought those jobs back

i've seen how deeply president trump

cares about rebuilding our evaporating

middle class

president trump pledged to give the

forgotten men and women of america a

real shot at the american dream and

again he delivered

the lowest unemployment rate in over 50


women creating small businesses at

record pace

wages rising the fastest by the way for

lowest income levels

what can joe biden say to that what has

joe biden done in his 47 years in


that can compare to that president trump

has delivered for the hard-working

people of this great nation

it's going to take that kind of bold

leadership to get us out of this coveted


after president trump saved lives by

shutting down flights from china and


he's now focusing the full weight of the

government on a revolutionary plan to

cure this virus

by cutting red tape and empowering

scientists to create a vaccine

this is visionary leadership and action

at a time when we can't afford another

47 years of hollow promises

america's been through tough times

before who better to lead us out of

these times

than the president who already built the

strongest economy our country has ever


donald trump did it before donald trump

will deliver for us

again god bless you and god bless these

united states of america

i'm sean parnell and it is an honor to

be here

in 2006 the army sent me to afghanistan

as a young platoon leader

placed in command of americans from

every corner of our planet

our platoon reflected the diversity of

our nation

every race creed and religion despite

those differences we were bound together

as brothers from the same american


on june 10 2006 our platoon was attacked

just after dawn

outnumbered ten to one we endured mortar

and machine gun fire as hundreds

of taliban charged us from three sides

we had 24 men that day wave after wave

of taliban advanced up the hill

i was wounded three times in the

fighting nearly all of my platoon was

wounded within the first minute

but the enemy kept coming we fought to

our last rounds of ammunition

and when it was over we held the hill

in the face of death i saw ordinary

americans become heroes

in our darkest hour when our survival


on each other my men and i learned an

important lesson

we all bleed red our differences did not

define us

united we were unbeatable after 485 days

of combat i came home

eager to enjoy the freedoms i risked my

life to defend

but i watched with alarm as the party of

my grandfather

a lifelong union democrat turned against

the very people it professed to


i watched as joe biden spit venom at an

auto worker who dared to question joe's

intent to dismantle the second amendment

and take your guns where democrats once

stood for hard-working law-abiding


who displayed our flag with pride this

new democrat party considers these

people uneducated racists

clinging to guns and bibles the party of

harry truman

became the party of hedge fund managers

hollywood celebrities

tech moguls and university professors

all bloated with contempt for middle


i look across the aisle and i do not see

a party

that wants you to pursue your dreams i

see a democrat party that wants to

dictate what those dreams

are i don't see a party that wants you

to be free

i see a party that wants to chain you to

conformity and will destroy anyone they

deem a heretic

i swore an oath to defend my country and

its constitution

president trump has sworn to do the same

that's why he's advanced

freedom despite savage political attacks

to overcome the agenda

of the radical left president trump has

unleashed the economic might of this


like no other president in our history

he triggered the rising tide of working


brought us energy independence reclaimed

jobs from overseas that you know

democrats said would never return

he has fiercely defended the besieged

first and second amendment

that is just a start with four more


imagine what we can achieve by simply


with our president i believe in our

president's vision for the future

i stand here tonight calling on all

americans to join us

it doesn't matter what you look like who

you love how you worship your gender or

your job

if you're a traditional democrat who's

become disillusioned with how radical

your party has become

then stand with us you are most welcome

america needs all her patriots to rush

to her defense

my fellow americans i promise you this

in our tent you are

free free to speak the truth

choose your journey define your life you

have the power to go as far as you aim

then aim higher and keep going because

that is what americans do

we are idealists and dreamers lovers of

adventure we're rugged and independent

we don't make excuses we make the


a reality think about it in a century

we went from ground-bound dreamers

gazing to the stars

to doers who created the means to reach


this is not the time to stand on the

sidelines if you love our country

as we do as our president does join the

chorus of patriot voices that will

preserve this exceptional union

mr president lead the way

millions in our american family believe

in this path to destiny

guide us to that horizon thank you

and may god bless the united states of


we come together to imagine a future

determined by the shining light of our

hopes and values

and faith


a country where we are judged by our

character with dignity and respect for


the belief that all are created equal

that lives matter irrespective of race

creed or color committed to excelling

beyond our dreams


four years ago we faced an historic


career politicians promising change

every election

but delivering emptiness

we chose a different path a man who is

not a politician

a man who cares a man who works


for you

still politicians spun their deceptions

and obstructed progress fanning the

flames of lawlessness

we all know that it is easy to criticize

it takes a true leader

to solve problems covert 19

while others criticize without solutions

president trump's swift action saved


and as leading democrats want to keep

businesses closed down

our president is leading the way for a

full economic recovery

we are america we as americans work

together to overcome

challenges write our own stories

america land of promise land of


land of heroes land of greatness

i thought i had been forgotten

i nearly gave up hope

i was so afraid

i believed i would die here

american hostages forgotten

and wasting away in far-off prisons

wrongfully detained by foreign


americans were beaten abused starved

and left for dead until president donald


stepped in the three american hostages

are finally back on u.s soil after being

held captive in north korea we're

following some breaking news in turkey

where an american pastor andrew brunson

has been released an american jailed in

egypt is back in the us this morning

after an

intervention by the trump administration

a tough and skilled negotiator

president trump successfully won the

release of detainees and prisoners

among the most of any president in

american history

while families waited in despair for

news of their loved ones

president trump provided a new spark of


by bringing our hostages home we have

danny burch back home where he should be

he was in

yemen in a very horrible situation

yesterday the united states government

secured the release of caitlyn coleman

joshua boyle and their three children

today we are

bringing home another american citizen

we just had news that turkey

released a prisoner that we were trying

to get to the united states

under this administration america has


and will not turn its back on our people

president trump will bring

them home

diplomacy negotiation skills


faith the ingredients of hope when there

is no hope

no american should ever be left behind


freeing american hostages


we have six incredible people who were

held hostage by various countries

hostages from

22 different countries we worked very

hard on it

ambassador o'brien and others and i will

tell you we uh

i'd like to ask maybe

pastor brunson to say a few words so we

can go through and

just give us a little history of what

happened and how is life treating you

i was held in turkey for two years and

you took unprecedented steps actually to

secure my release and your

administration really fought for me

that i may still be in turkey

they had you there for

they had you scheduled for a long time

andrew we had to get you back and i have

to say that to me

president erdogan was very good and i

know they had you scheduled for a long

time and you were a very innocent person

and he ultimately after we had a few

conversations he agreed

so we appreciate that and we appreciate

the people of turkey and you still

appreciate the people of turkey i

understand right

we love the turkish people that's grace

it's great to have you back andrew thank


please mr president thank you for having

me my name is sam goodwin i'm from st

louis missouri

hostages and detainees here when i say

anything to be home safely

and uh thank you for the invitation and

opportunity to be here

incredibly supportive and helpful to my


and i can't say enough nice things about

him thank you for promoting him

some more that we're working on right

myself thank you uh president trump for

getting us out and getting us home

the darkest moment of our whole time


uh your letter to my wife came and it

really gave her the hope and the peace

and it's great

from that time forward as more people

got involved especially the ambassador


in india things became more peaceful and

the hope

was there for the last four months that

we really would get to come home because

they had planned on keeping me for

three to five years the original charge

thing was three to five years right and

that was cleared and then they came up

with new charges to do a seven-year

term india responded very well to my

hello my name is maximo alvarez

i live in miami florida not far from the

state of florida

which isn't just a 90 mile white blue

strip on a map for me it divides freedom

from fear

it divides the past from the press from

the future

i know all about the past i'll never

forget my own my family

has fled totalitarianism and communism

more than once first my dad from spain

then from cuba but my families don't run


by the grace of god i live the american


the greatest blessing i ever had

my dad only had a sixth grade education

told me

don't lose this place you'll never be as

low against me

i'm speaking to you today because my

family is done abandoning

what we rightfully earned there is no

place to hide

speaking to you today because president


may not always be politically correct

he's in fact

a successful businessman your average

career politician

our president is just another family man

a friend

and most important our elected

commander-in-chief who puts america


keep in mind the other guy running for

president is mostly concerned about


yes yes power for them

but not for the benefit of all americans

and speaking to you today because

i have seen people like this before i've

seen movements like this before

i've seen ideas like this before

and i am here to tell you we cannot let


take over our country i heard the

promises of fidel castro

and i can never forget all those who

grew up around me

who looked like me who suffered

and starved and died because they

believe those empty promises

they swallow the communist poison pill

if you have a chance go to the freedom

tower in miami

stop and listen you can still hear the

sounds of those

broken promises

it is the sound of waves in the ocean

carrying families

clinging to pieces of wood families with

children who can swim

but willing to risk everything to reach

this blessed land

it is the sound of tears hitting the

paper of an application

to become an american citizen

most heard unlike the promises

but soon after they experienced the


look at them listen to them

learn the truth those false

promises spread the wealth

free education free health care

to fund the police trust a social estate

more than your family and your community

they don't sound radical to my ears

they sound familiar

and fidel castro was asked if he was a


he said he was a roman catholic he knew

he had

to hide the truth

but the country i was born in is gone

totally destroyed

when i watched the news in seattle

chicago poland and other cities

when i see the history being rewritten

when i hear the promises

of her echoes i hear echoes

of the former life i never wanted to

hear again

i see shadows i thought i had outrun

my parents only wanted one person

to decide my fate me

not somebody member not some government


not some bureaucrats in america

i would decide my own future i am so

grateful to america

the place where i was able to build my

american dream

through hard work and determination

president trump knows that the american


was written by people just like you and


who love our country and take risks

to build a future for our families and


i may be a cuban born but i am 100


this is the greatest country in the


and i said this before if i gave away

everything that i have today

it would not equal 1 of what i was given

when i came to this great country of


the gift of freedom

right now it is up to us to decide our


and to choose freedom

over oppression president trump

he's fighting the forces of anarchy and


and i know he will continue to do just


and what about his opponent and the rest

of the dc swamp

i have no doubt that will hand the

country over to those dangerous forces

you and i will decide

and here's what i've decided my decision

is very easy

i choose president trump

because i choose america i choose


i still hear my dad

there is no other place to go

thank you i made a good lord bless


the democrats are just going more and

more left many positive about socialism

liking it more than capitalism

many of the ideas we fought for that

were considered

radical are now mainstream the


that uh they came up with if implemented

will make biden the most progressive


uh since fdr the radical left has taken

over the democratic party

and joe biden is marching in lockstep

with them

biden and the far left are promising to

crush middle-class families

with trillions in new taxes if you elect

me your taxes are going to be raised not


promising amnesty and health care for 11


illegal immigrants citizenship for 11

million undocumented folks

promising to shut down energy

exploration killing jobs

and hurting america's

in economy biden's america the radical

left get whatever they want

and you get to pay for it they've

already taken over joe biden and the

democratic party

don't let them take over america

good evening i'm nikki haley and it's

great to be back at the republican

national convention

i'll start with a little story it's

about an american ambassador to the

united nations

and it's about a speech she gave to this


she called for the re-election of the

republican president she served

and she called out his democratic


a former vice president from a failed

administration that ambassador said and

i quote

democrats always blame america first

the year was 1984. the president

was ronald reagan and ambassador gene

kirkpatrick's words

are just as true today

joe biden and the democrats are still

blaming america first donald trump

has always put america first and he has


four more years as president

it was in honor of a lifetime to serve

as the united states ambassador to the

united nations

now the u.n is not for the faint of


it's a place where dictators murderers

and thieves denounce america

and then put their hands out and demand

that we

pay their bills well president trump put


end to all of that with his leadership

we did what barack obama

and joe biden refused to do we stood

up for america and we stood against

our enemies obama and biden let north

korea threaten america

president trump rejected that weakness

and we

passed the toughest sanctions on north

korea in history

obama and biden let iran get away with


and literally sent them a plane full of


president trump did the right thing and

ripped up

the iran nuclear deal obama and biden

led the united nations to denounce

our friend and ally israel

president trump moved our embassy to


and when the u.n tried to condemn us i

was proud to cast

the american veto this president has a

record of strength

and success the former vice president

has a record of weakness and failure

joe biden is good for iran and isis


for communist china and he's a godsend

to everyone who wants america to


abstain and abandon our values

donald trump takes a different approach

he's tough on china

and he took on isis and won

and he tells the world what it needs to


at home the president is the clear

choice on jobs in the economy

he's moved america forward while joe


has held america back when joe was vp

i was governor of the great state of

south carolina

we had a pretty good run manufacturers

of all kinds flocked to our state from


creating tens of thousands of american


people were referring to south carolina

as the beast

of the southeast which i loved

everything we did

happened in spite of joe biden and his

old boss

we cut taxes they raised them

we slashed red tape they piled on more


and when we brought in good paying jobs

biden and obama sued us

i fought back and they gave up

a biden harris administration would be


much worse last time joe's boss was


this time it would be pelosi sanders

and the squad their vision for america

is socialism and we know that socialism

has failed everywhere they want to tell

americans how to live

and what to think they want a government

takeover of health care

they want to ban fracking and kill

millions of jobs

they want massive tax hikes on working


joe biden and the socialists left would

be a disaster

for our economy but president trump is


a new era of opportunity before


china gave us the coronavirus we were

breaking economic records

left and right the pandemic has set us


but not for long president trump brought

our economy back before

and he will bring it back again

there's one more important area where

our president is right

he knows that political correctness and

cancel culture

are dangerous and just plain wrong

in much of the democratic party it's now


to say that america is racist that

is a lie america is not

a racist country

this is personal for me i am the proud

daughter of indian immigrants

they came to america and settled in a

small southern town

my father wore a turban my mother wore a


i was a brown girl in a black and white


we faced discrimination and hardship but

my parents

never gave in to grievance and hate

my mom built a successful business my

dad taught 30 years

at a historically black college and the

people of south carolina

chose me as their first minority and

first female

governor america is a story that's a

work in progress

now is the time to build on that

progress and make america even freer

fairer and better for everyone that's

why it's so

tragic to see so much of the democratic


turning a blind eye towards riots and


the american people know we can do


and of course we value and respect every


life the black cops who've been shot in

the line of duty

they matter the black small business

owners who've watched their lives work

go up in flames they

matter the black kids who've been gunned


on the playground their lives matter too

and their lives are being ruined and

stolen by the violence

on our streets it doesn't have to be

like this

it wasn't like this in south carolina

five years ago

our state came face to face with evil

a white supremacist walked into mother

emanuel church

during bible study 12 african americans

pulled up a chair and prayed with him

for an hour then he began to shoot

after that horrific tragedy we didn't

turn against each other

we came together black and white

democrat and republican together we made

the hard choices

needed to heal and removed a divisive


peacefully and respectfully what

happened then should give us hope

now america isn't perfect

but the principles we hold dear are


there's one thing i've learned it's that


on our worst day we are blessed

to live in america it's time to keep

that blessing alive for the next


this president and this party are

committed to that noble task

we seek a nation that rises together not

falls apart in anarchy and anger

we know that the only way to overcome

america's challenges

is to embrace america's strengths

we are striving to reach a brighter

future where every child

goes to a world-class school chosen by

their parents

where every family lives in a safe

community with good jobs

where every entrepreneur has the freedom

to achieve and

inspire where every believer can worship

without fear

and every life is protected

where every girl and boy every woman and

man of every race and religion has the

best shot at the best

life in this election we must choose the

only candidate who has and who will


delivering on that vision president


and vice president pence have my support

and america has our promise we will

build on the progress of our past

and unlock the promise of our future

that future starts when the american


reelect president donald trump

thank you good night and may god always




good evening america i'm donald trump jr

we're here tonight to talk about the

great american

story to talk about this country we all


this land of promise and opportunity of


and greatness just a few short months

ago we were seeing the american dream

become a reality

for more of our citizens than ever

before the greatest prolonged economic

expansion in american history

the lowest unemployment rate in nearly

50 years

the lowest unemployment rates ever for

black americans

hispanic americans women and pretty much

every other demographic group

and then courtesy of the chinese

communist party the virus struck

the president quickly took action and

shut down travel from china

joe biden and his democrat allies called

my father a racist and a xenophobe for

doing it

they put political correctness ahead of

the safety and security

of the american people fortunately

as the virus began to spread the

president acted quickly and ensured

ventilators got to hospitals that needed

them most

he delivered pp e to our brave frontline


and he rallied the mighty american

private sector to tackle this new


there's more work to do but there is a

light at the end of the tunnel

job gains are outpacing what the

so-called experts expected

but biden's radical left-wing policies

would stop our economic recovery cold

he's already talking about shutting the

country down again

it's madness democrats claim to be for


but they've spent the entire pandemic

trying to sneak a tax break for

millionaires and democrat states into

the coveted relief bill

then they attacked my father for

suspending the payroll tax for

middle-class workers

in fact if you think about it joe

biden's entire economic platform seems

designed to crush the working man and


he supported the worst trade deals in

the history of the planet

he voted for the nafta nightmare down

the tubes went our auto industry

he pushed for tpp goodbye manufacturing


beijing biden is so weak on china that

the intelligence community recently


that the chinese communist party favors


they know he'll weaken us both

economically and on a world stage

biden also wants to bring in more

illegal immigrants to take jobs from

american citizens

his open border policies would drive

wages down for americans at a time when

low-income workers were getting real

wage increases

for the first time in modern history

he's pledged to repeal the trump tax


which were the biggest in our country

after eight years of obama and biden

slow growth

trump's policies have been like rocket

fuel to the economy and especially

to the middle class biden has promised

to take that money back out of your


and keep it in the swamp that makes

sense though considering

joe biden is basically the loch ness

monster of the swamp

for the past half century he's been

lurking around in there

he sticks his head up every now and then

to run for president

then he disappears and doesn't do much

in between

so if you're looking for hope look to

the man who did what the failed obama

biden administration never could do and


the greatest economy our country has

ever seen

and president trump will do it again we

will be stronger than ever because when

we put our mind to it

there is no obstacle that america can't


except there's a difference this time in

the past

both parties believed in the goodness of


we agreed on where we wanted to go we

just disagreed on

how to get there this time the other

party is attacking

the very principles on which our nation

was founded

freedom of thought freedom of speech

freedom of religion the rule of law

thomas jefferson famously said i have

sworn upon the altar of god

eternal hostility against every form of


over the mind of man our founders


there was nothing more important than

protecting our god-given right to think

for ourselves

now the left they're trying to cancel

all of those founders

they don't seem to understand this

important principle

in order to improve in the future we

must learn from our past

not erase it so we're not going to tear

down monuments and forget the people who

built our great nation instead

we will learn from our past so we don't

repeat any mistakes

and we will work tirelessly to improve

the lives of all americans

joe biden and the radical left are now

coming for our freedom of speech

they want to bully us into submission if

they get their way

it will no longer be the silent majority

it will be

the silenced majority this has to stop

freedom of expression used to be a

liberal value

at least before the radical left took


now the republican party is the home of

free speech

the place where anyone from any

background can speak their mind

and may the best ideas win people of

faith are under attack

you're not allowed to go to church but

mass chaos in the streets gets a pass

it's almost like this election is

shaping up to be church

work and school versus rioting looting

and vandalism or in the words of biden

and the democrats peaceful protesting

anarchists have been flooding our

streets and democrat mayors are

ordering the police to stand down small

businesses across america many of the

minority owned

are being torched by mobs the democrat

mayors pretend it's not happening

they actually called it a summer of love

and that brings me to another important

principle every american

must be free to live without fear of


in your country in your communities and


your homes all men and women

are created equal and must be treated

equally under the law

that's why we must put an end to racism

and we must ensure that any police

officer who abuses their powers

is held accountable what happened to

george floyd is a disgrace and if you

know a police officer

you know they agree with that too but we

cannot lose sight of the fact that our

police are american heroes

they deserve our deepest appreciation

because no matter what the democrats say

you and i both know

when we dial 9-1-1 we don't want it

going to voicemail

so defunding the police is not an option

everything starts with safety and

security you can't have anything else

without it

you can't focus on building a better

future for your children without the

peace of mind

that they can study safely in their

classrooms play safely in their


and sleep safely in their beds

but safety is only the beginning trump's

america is a land of opportunity

a place of promise i was fortunate

enough to grow up in a family that could

afford the best schools and the finest


but a great education cannot be the

exclusive right of the rich and powerful

it must be accessible to all

and that's why my dad is pro school

choice that's why he's called

education access the civil rights issue

not just of our time

but of all time it is unacceptable

that too many african-american and

hispanic american children

are stuck in bad schools just because of

their zip code

donald trump will not stand for it if

democrats really wanted to help

minorities and

underserved communities instead of

bowing to big money union bosses

they'd let parents choose what school is

best for their kids

they'd limit immigration to protect

american workers

they'd support the police who protect

our neighborhoods

they'd learn how to negotiate trade

deals that prioritize america's

interests for a change

they'd end the endless wars and quit

sending our young people to solve

problems in foreign lands

they'd cut taxes for families and


they'd create opportunity zones that

drive investment

into inner cities in other words

if democrats cared for the forgotten men

and women of our country

they'd do exactly what president trump

is doing

america is the greatest country on earth

but my father's entire world view

revolves around the idea

that we can always do even better

imagine the life you want to have one

with a great job

a beautiful home a perfect family you

can have it

imagine the country you want to live in

one with true

equal opportunity where hard work pays

off and justice is served with

compassion and without partiality

you can have it imagine a world where

the evils of communism and radical

islamic terrorism

are not given a chance to spread where

heroes are celebrated and the good guys


you can have it that is the life

that is the country that is the world

that donald trump and the republican

party are

after and yes you can have it

because unlike joe biden and the radical

left democrats

our party is open to everyone

it starts by rejecting radicals who want

to drag us into the dark

and embracing the man who represents

a bright and beautiful future for all

it starts by re-electing donald j trump


of the united states thank you

and god bless america


i'm catalina lauf i work in the

political space

and i'm madeline lau and i'm the founder

of vegan health a children's nutritional

company we grew up in a really small

town outside of chicago

our mom's from guatemala our dad's a

small business owner from chicago

and so we brought two different cultures

together to create us

a little bit of crazy and a little bit

of fun

yes they taught us the values of hard

work liberty

to love this country unapologetically

our dad is a beekeeper and just had so

many different things out in the

countryside and it was just such a sweet


selling honey at farmers markets so

my line was uh have you ever been stung

by a bee

but really it was teaching us again


small business self-reliance and that

we're the ones that need to

put in the hard work to get what we want

my mother being from guatemala escaping

what she had there

growing up in poverty and

coming here to the united states being

able to fulfill her destiny and be

somebody that she couldn't there in her

home country

and they really instilled in us the

sense of

purpose but also self-accountability and


we had to strive to do the things that

we wanted and it was up to us to make

those things happen

in america there's no ceiling of


you know you define your own destiny

through personal responsibility through

hard work

through having a moral value system

that's the american dream and

president trump's providing that for


look at my business begin health as a

small startup that is growing and

launching we are

constantly trying to innovate and the

big challenge that cobit brought that we

just didn't see coming was that

just almost everything kind of just shut

down and when you are a small startup

and you have limited funding

and the funding is really only to kind

of get you to that next milestone

we were really struggling and so we were

able to

apply for a ppp loan which really helped


us to continue hiring and working and

developing our products so that we could

ultimately still launch

it's now more than ever so important to

have a president and administration that

understands that small business is the

backbone of our economy

tax custom jobs act was huge


deregulation fair trade these are things

that affected real americans

we have a champion in the oval office

who has this business background he

actually understands the need for

small businesses like my sisters to


we aren't the stereotypical conservative

i mean we're

we come from hispanic descent and we're

millennial women

and that's not what the media wants

and so somebody like aoc alexander

ocasio-cortez this far

left these women come out with these


very destructive political ideologies

that are trying to infiltrate

millennials and the next generation

i've decided to step up and say well we

need a counter voice to these women

there has been an assault on capitalism

just generally and i think it's very

scary to

imagine a biden world where the

progressive wing

ideas are starting to take front and

center stage

you know that will really choke the

american economy

there will be over-regulation over


it's very hard to innovate through those

two things

and ultimately what's really sad is the

thought of you know making all of us

dependent on the government

and we are not going to allow that

i've seen a lot of moderates a lot of


now changing over because of everything

that's been happening

this is a taste of biden's america i

mean this the rioting the crime

freedom is at stake now and this is

going to be

the most important election of our


we want to preserve the america that our

mother came here for

having a thriving economy that is

keeping america great and president

trump has delivered on that promise

he's truly fighting for the american


we're the greatest country in the world

period on our worst day

we're still the greatest country in the

world and in order to preserve that

it's by putting america first

having a thriving economy having



good evening i'm senator tim scott from

the great state of south carolina

to all of you tuning in and

participating in the political process

god bless you this isn't how i picture


but our country is experiencing

something none of us envisioned

from a global pandemic to the deaths of

george floyd and brianna taylor

2020 has tested our nation in ways we

haven't seen for decades

but regardless of the challenges

presented to us

every four years americans come together

to vote to share stories of what makes

our nation strong

and the lessons we have learned that can

strengthen it for further

generations because while this election

is between donald trump and joe biden

it is not solely about donald trump

and joe biden it's about the promise of


it's about you and me our challenges and


hopes and dreams it's about how we


when tackling critical issues like

police reform when democrats called our


a token effort and walked out of the


during negotiations because they wanted

the issue more than they wanted a


do we want a society that breeds success

or a culture that cancels everything it

even slightly

disagrees with i know where i stand

because you see

i am living my mother's american dream

my parents divorced when i was seven

years old

and we moved in with my grandparents

into a two-bedroom home

with me my mom and my brother sharing a


and one bed my mom worked 16 hours a day

to keep food on the table

and a roof over our heads she knew that

if we could find the opportunity

bigger things would come i thought i had

to use football to succeed in life

and my focus on academics faded away

my freshman year i failed out i felt

four subjects

spanish english world geography

and even civics trust me though after

seven years in the senate

i know i'm not the only one in congress

who failed civics

but even while i was failing the ninth

grade my mother always said to me

timmy if you would just shoot for the

moon even if you miss

you'll be among the stars she never lost

faith in me

even when i lost faith in myself

because of her encouragement i went to

summer school and caught up the next

year i met my mentor

john moniz a chick-fil-a operator john

saw something in me that i could not see

in myself

and started teaching me valuable life


like having a job would be a good thing

but creating jobs

would be even better that having an

income could change

my lifestyle but creating a profit

could change my community he planted the

seeds of what would become

opportunity zones this initiative that

the president and i work together on

is now bringing more than 75 billion


of private sector investment into

distressed communities

i took those lessons to heart and

started putting the pieces of my life

back together i realized a quality

education is the closest thing to magic

in america

that's why i fight to this day for

school choice

to make sure every child in every


has a quality education i don't care if

it's a public

private charter virtual or a home school

when a parent has a choice their kid

has a better chance and the president

has fought alongside me on that later in


i started my own small business that's

why i know

it is critical for us to have a tax code


encourages growth we actually saw

revenues to the treasury

increase after we lowered taxes in 2017.

rest assured the democrats do not want

you to know that

after starting my small business and

spending some time in local government

i decided to run for congress in 2010.

the district

is based in charleston south carolina

where the civil war started

against a son of our legendary senator

strom thurman you may be asking yourself

how does a poor black kid from a

single-parent household

run and win in a race crowded with


against the thurman because of the


of the southern heart in an


white district the voters judged me not

on the color of my skin but on the


of my character we live in a world that

only wants you to believe

in the bad news racially economically

and culturally

polarizing news the truth is

our nation's ark always bends back

towards fairness we are not fully where

we want to be but i thank god

almighty we are not where we used to be

we are always striving to be better

when we stumble and we will we pick


back up and try again we don't give in

to cancel culture

or the radical and factually baseless


that things are worse today than in the


or the 1960s we have work to do

but i believe in the goodness of america

the promise that all men and all women


created equal and if you're watching


i'm betting you do too over the past

four years

we have made tremendous progress towards

that promise

president trump built the most inclusive


ever seven million jobs created

pre-coveted 19 and two-thirds

of them went to women african-americans

and hispanics

the first new major effort to tackle

poverty in a generation

opportunity zones we put hard

earned tax dollars back in people's


by cutting their taxes especially for

single parent households

like the one i grew up in cutting single

mothers taxes

70 percent on average president trump

supported these tax cuts

for those single moms and other working


and sign these policies into law and our


is better off for it so

i'm going to ask you the american people

not to simply look at what the

candidates say

but to look back at what they've done

this election is about your future and

it is critical to paint a full

picture of the records of donald trump

and joe biden joe biden said if a black

man didn't vote for him

he wasn't truly black joe biden said

black people are a monolithic community

it was joe biden who said poor kids

can be just as smart as white kids

and while his words are one thing

his actions take it to a whole new level

in 1994 biden led the charge on a crime

bill that put millions of black

americans behind bars

president trump's criminal justice

reform law fixed

many of the disparities biden created

and made

our system more fair and just for all


joe biden also failed our nations

historically black colleges

and universities keeping blame on them

as they fought to ensure

our young folks had access to higher


once again to clean up joe biden's mess

president trump signed into law

historically high

funding for hbcus as well as a bill

to give them permanent funding

for the first time ever

and now joe biden wants to come for your


unless of course you're a blue state

millionaire i'm serious

that's one of their solutions for the

pandemic they want to

take more money from your pocket

and give it to manhattan elites and

hollywood moguls

so they get a tax break republicans


passed president trump's once in a

generation tax reform bill that lower

taxes for single moms working families

and those in need so when it comes to


joe biden says he'll do

look at his actions look at his policies

look at what he already did and what he

didn't do

while he's been in washington for 47


ladies and gentlemen people don't always


those failures because they think we're

having a policy debate on two sides of

an issue

that is not what is happening our side

is working on policy

while joe biden's radical democrats are

trying to permanently transform

what it means to be an american

make no mistake joe biden

and kamala harris want a cultural


a fundamentally different america

if we let them they will turn our


into a socialist utopia and history has

taught us that path

only leads to pain and misery

especially for hard working people

hoping to rise instead we

must focus on the promise of the

american journey

i know that journey well my


99th birthday would have been tomorrow

growing up he had to cross the street

if a white person was coming he suffered

the indignity

of being forced out of school as a third


to pick cotton and he never learned to


or write yet he lived long enough

to see his grandson become the first


to be elected to both the united states


and the united states senate in the

history of this country

our family went from cotton to congress

in one lifetime and that's why i believe

the next american century can be better

than the last

there are millions of families just like


all across this nation full of potential

seeking to live the american dream

and i'm here tonight to tell you that


the republican ticket gives you the best


of making that dream a reality

god bless you and father please continue

blessing the united states of america

god bless
