CLEVELAND, Ohio — The speakers took the stage on the second night of the Republican National Convention to speak on Donald Trump’s behalf.
Tonight’s theme was: Make America Work Again.
Tonight’s slate of speakers included business owners, entrepreneurs, elected officials and athletes.
Notably, two of Trump’s children spoke in support of their father.
Tiffany Trump said she was nervous to talk in front of such a large crowd, but thrilled to talk about her father and the amazing man he is.
“My father is good with advice, as you might guess. But he keeps it short… and the take-away is usually the same. To help us find our own way and our own gifts.. if you do what you love, hold nothing back… and never let fear or failure get in the way… then you pretty much figured out the Trump formula.”
The other speakers included: RNC Co-Chairman Sharon Day, UFC President Dana White, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Founder and CEO of Standard Waterproofing Corporation Andy Wist, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action Chris Cox, professional golfer Natalie Gulbis, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23), Trump Winery General Manager Kerry Woolard, U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, and actress and small business owner Kimberlin Brown.
Here are some of the excerpts from a few other speakers:
“Hillary Clinton wants you to vote for her simply because she will MAKE history.”
“She repeatedly plays the gender card. In fact she boasts….”deal me in.” Well Mrs. Clinton consider yourself dealt in.”
Over the years, Hillary Clinton has done a lot and said a lot to show why she should not be president.
But how she treated government secrets as Secretary of State, and what she said before and after she was caught, sums up the case against her.
We fight for the rights of all Americans, regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation…because the right to protect your life is the most precious right you have.
If you agree…you have to vote for Donald Trump.
Kerry Woolard (Donald Trump Winery General Manager)
“You often hear Donald Trump talk, but what you don’t see is when he listens. He and his son Eric listen attentively and ask questions that lead to engaged, informed decisions based on the expert knowledge of those who have earned their trust.”
“That trust is rewarded not just with compensation but with authority and resources.”
Dr. Ben Carson
“When deciding who to elect as our next president, we owe it to ourselves and our country to make use of this power of reason to evaluate the character, experience, and intentions of the candidates and make an informed decision. We must resist the temptation to take the easy way out and passively accept what is fed to us by the media or the political elite.”
“Donald Trump understands this very well. He understands that the blessings of this nation come with the responsibility to ensure that they are available to all, not just the privileged few. It is evident in his passion for the American worker. It is found in his desire to put his considerable skills to work on behalf of American interests, not self-interest.”
“Like so many parents today, I have great concerns about the direction of our country and what it means for the future of my children.”
“We have started businesses that have succeeded (and still do) and we have had ventures that have not. We have created jobs and even more tax dollars. We have worked 80 hour weeks and have gone without pay checks to keep employees paid. This is not unique to Gary and me. It is the story of every small business owner in America.”
