Day 4 of the Republican National Convention - Recap
Donald Trump, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Sen. Tom Cotton, Rudy Giuliani and Ivanka Trump all spoke on Day 4 of the convention.
Donald Trump officially accepted the nomination as the Republican Presidential candidate.
Some Trump protesters were in the streets outside of the White House Thursday night. There were several skirmishes after the convention ended between protesters and the police. There is a planned protester march on Friday as well.
The crowd of 2,000 on the South Lawn of the White House was mostly mask-less and closely seated drawing criticism from many about not respecting the pandemic guidelines.
What was Said:
Trump criticized Joe Biden during his speech calling him a "career politician" who will endanger Americans' safety: “We have spent the last four years reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years...Your vote will decide whether we protect law abiding Americans, or whether we give free rein to violent anarchists, agitators and criminals who threaten our citizens."
Trump also spoke about a potential Coronavirus vaccine arriving by the end of the year or "maybe even sooner" and promised "victory" over the pandemic.
Rudy Giuliani criticized both the Democratic Party's reaction to the protests in Kenosha as well as the "Black Lives Matter" movement, saying their [the Democrats] "silence was so deafening that it reveals an acceptance of this violence because they will accept anything they hope will defeat President Donald Trump.” On Black Lives Matter, he said the movement was part of the extremist voices pushing Biden to “execute their pro-criminal, anti-police policies” and that they have “hijacked the protests into vicious, brutal riots.”
