The Republican National Convention concluded on Thursday with President Donald Trump formally accepting the GOP nomination for a second term as president in a speech delivered from the White House South Lawn. Chants of “four more years!” broke out at White House, after Pres. Trump called the upcoming presidential contest “the most important election in the history of our country.” In stark contrast, however, as the president delivers his acceptance speech, protesters gathered at Black Lives Matter plaza near the White House chanting “vote him out.”
Other speakers on Day 4 of the RNC were the President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old woman whose life sentence was commuted by Trump after advocacy from Kim Kardashian West, Pat Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and personal attorney to the president.
