The last day of the Republican National Convention ended as a week full of history and firsts for the party, from PayPal founder Peter Thiel being given a standing ovation for openly talking about being a gay Republican Trump supporter, to the amount of records Trump broke since he started his campaign and Trump’s speech itself.
The third day of the Republican National Convention focused on the theme of “Make America First Again” and included speeches from a variety of well-known figures- all banning together- to ask each and every person in America to get out there and “Vote Trump” in November.
During the second day of the Republican National Convention, not only did Donald Trump surpass the required 1, 237 delegates needed to become the Republican’s party official presidential candidate with an additional 89 delegates, marking it as the largest vote total in Republican history, but it was a night focusing on uniting the Republican party and destroying Hillary Clinton.
During the second day of the Republican National Convention, Chris Cox, a lobbyist who directs the legislative and political actions of the largest and oldest civil rights group in America- the NRA- claimed that if Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, was a fighter for women’s rights then she wouldn’t be against a woman’s right to protect her own life.
“Make America Safe Again” was the theme of the first day of the Republican convention and Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., former New York Governor Rudy Giuliani and Patricia Smith, a mother of one of the fallen Benghazi soldiers, delivered some of the most powerful speeches of the night, leaving the stage to standing ovations, chants and tears.
