The 2016 Republican convention is currently taking place at the Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio.
The convention which started on Monday has witnessed interesting high points and controversies.
The 2016 Republican Convention is the political function that officially declares the nominees for the office of the President and Vice President.
There are 2,472 delegates to the Republican National Convention, with a simple majority of 1,237 required to win the presidential nomination (Wikipedia). Amazingly, Trump surpassed expectations and won the nomination with 1, 725 delegates.
After what was considered an elegantly rendered speech, it was found that the aspiring Republican First Lady, Melania Trump plagiarized parts of Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech.
The Speech controversy went wild on the internet. However, Trump says no one in his team is losing their job for the confusion.
The kick-off for the day was super-charged. Republicans seriously gave their finest shot to discredit Hillary Clinton. Republican, Rudy Gulani in an unusual and unprecedented fiery expression disqualified Clinton from top to bottom.
It was an event replete with name calling and demonizing of the presumptive democratic president. Republicans without a doubt want to see Hillary Clinton behind bars.
Trump’s Children saved the day… With the speech embarrassment from the presumptive Republican First Lady, Trump’s children effortlessly dowsed the negative buzz with their eloquent, poised and confident presentations.
The Trump kids are smart, undeniably. Most striking was the presentation of Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
His speech conspicuously showed the wealth of knowledge and intelligence of an active American social cum business observer. He knew exactly what he was talking about.
Dissimilar to his father’s style, Trump Jr. subtly stamped authority as he credited his father for United States presidency.
During the convention, Gov. Chris Christie prosecuted Clinton in a mock trial. He accused her and the past administration of lying to Americans and blamed her for the escalation in global terrorism. He implied that Hillary Clinton failed woefully in her duty as America’s chief diplomat.
Ben Carson on his part, went as far as literally linking Hillary Clinton to Lucifer.
In all, Donald Trump and Mike pence have officially become the Republican nominees for President and Vice President of the United States.
