The final day has arrived of what can only be described as a topsy-turvy Republican National Convention. The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign can only hope to create a positive and lasting image of the candidate as he enters the four-month sprint to Election Day. Tonight, he will make the most important speech of his life, to date. What is he expected to say? What else happens as the GOP shutters their Cleveland convention?
While there will be other people on the platform, their “speeches” are being called “remarks” on Day Four. Because this is truly a day belonging to Donald John Trump. He has been tabbed by this crowd as the man to lead the country into the next four years. What others have to say about him fades into the background on Day Four.
Among those who will make remarks are former pro football quarterback Fran Tarkenton, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin. They will be followed by RNC chairman Reince Priebus, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., and PayPal founder Peter Thiel.
Finally, as the balloons and confetti sit poised to fall to the convention center floor, Mr. rump’s daughter, Ivanka, will introduce her father. Mr. Trump will take to the lectern and attempt to make his case to the American people. An estimated 30 million people will be watching.
What will Mr. Trump have to say? Will he keep to the script as placed on his Tele-Prompter? Will he speak off-the-cuff? Or will it be a combination of the two?
Many convention delegates and party operatives hope this is the night when policy plans are unveiled. The convention has been an indictment of Secretary Clinton to this point. Tonight, Mr. Trump has the chance to say what he would do as the 45th President of the United States. The country awaits.
