The news is out: [Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, is expected to deliver remarks on Wednesday from the Fort McHenry monument near Baltimore. Trump’s family, including first lady Melania Trump and some of the president’s adult children, will also have prominent speaking roles next week.
Some of the lawmakers expected to deliver convention speeches include Trump’s former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa), Rep. Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Abby Johnson, Alice Johnson, Patricia and Mark McCloskey, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Andrew Pollack, Nick Sandmann, First Lady Melania Trump, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina and Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa, according to reports from The Washington Post, CNBC and CNN. Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), the only Black Republican in the Senate, played a key role in crafting the GOP police reform bill, which was ultimately blocked by Democrats who had their own legislation.]
President Donald Trump will accept the nomination on behalf of every republican’s favorite candidate: Vladimir Putin.
