President Donald Trump will take center stage this week at the Republican National Convention.
The convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C., Monday to Thursday from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET. Unlike the Democratic National Convention, “business” portions of the event will be in person, with 336 delegates in attendance. Most of the event will be virtual, however, with Trump speaking from the White House through a stream.
Other speakers this year will include First Lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who will be accepting his role as the vice presidential candidate from Baltimore’s Fort McHenry. Other members of the Trump family are expected to speak, as well as Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple facing felony charges for aiming firearms at protestors in front of their house, and Nick Sandmann, the student who went viral over a confrontation with a Native American protestor in 2019.
Each of the four days will cover different topics: promise, opportunity, heroes and greatness. The slew of speakers and appearances is meant to feature both party leaders and Americans who represent the “everyday” voter.
The event will be televised on major networks like ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN and Fox News, as well as on the social media accounts of the RNC’s committee on arrangements. Listeners can access the stream on Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and through Amazon Alexa.
