It’s the Party of Trump now….and, in typical Trump fashion, is going to be one heck of a show.
President Trump will defy tradition by speaking every night this week for the event… he and Vice President Pence will kick things off in person, appearing in Charlotte, North Carolina, home to the event. They’re expected to arrive at 11:45 am in North Carolina.
This is a President who understands television….and, as such, tonight and throughout the week…we should expect to quite the performance. An entertaining event filled with the message of hope and optimism for a better future.
President Donald Trump ran successfully on this economic message in 2016 and had it not been for coronavirus, and the politicization of it, it would have seemed he had delivered on much of his economic platform. Despite 3 and half years of investigations, complete with an impeachment scandal and many other headaches too numerous to mention, Trump managed to oversee the most prosperous economy in American history. The stock market reached historic highs and unemployment levels before the pandemic neared historic lows. This week, the President will make the case to the American public that he can do it all over again.
This message is expected to be the antithesis of the despair presented by Joe Biden and the Dems in their recent, often painful to watch, hours-long virtual telethon.
In addition to the President appearing every night, the Republicans have a big lineup for the week. On Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will speak from Israel, highlighting President Trump’s moving of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as well as the role the U.S. played in the historic Israel-United Arab Emirates agreement stuck earlier this month.
Bottomline: expect this convention to be a highly produced, televisioni event…a vastly different viewing experience than what we saw from the Dems. Traditionally, Americans have wanted something to vote for, not against. President Trump is betting four more years on it.
