Remarks for Night Three of the Republican National Convention – Part One

President Trump’s 2020 Convention honors the great American story, the American people that have written it, and how President Donald J. Trump has empowered them to succeed. The convention highlights the progress that has been made under President Trump’s leadership, the hardworking Americans that make it possible, and how he will continue to make America great. While Democrats attack our country and sow division, President Trump is implementing an agenda that puts the American people first. 

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem
Remarks as Prepared: 

Good evening, I’m Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota.

I’m here tonight because I believe America is an exceptional nation founded on three principles – equality, freedom, and opportunity.

But today, our founding principles are under attack.

This year, the choice for Americans is between a man who values these ideals and all that can be built because of them / and a man who isn’t guided by these ideals and coincidentally, has built nothing.

Remember, America’s battle for independence and fight for self-governance was something that had never been done before. Men of great intellect and wisdom like James Madison / the Father of our Constitution / hoped our constitutional republic would last for ages, mitigate the problems that would naturally arise from political factions, and prevent tyranny.

Our Constitution gave only a few, narrowly defined powers to the federal government. Most powers were left to the states, so that those closest to the people could decide the laws that would govern their activities.

Madison also authored much of the Bill of Rights because he understood the natural tendency of government to increasingly encroach on the people’s consent and thus our freedom. He urged his colleagues to adopt these amendments to enshrine in our Constitution the ideals laid out in the Declaration of Independence:

  • That all power comes from the people; and
  • That government is created and ought to be exercised for the benefit of the people.

Our Constitution guarantees:

  • The right to speak, to assemble, and to worship;
  • The right to arm ourselves as a counterbalance to a standing army; and
  • The right to a fair and equitable criminal justice system.

We must fight to protect these foundational rights from government interference and indifference.

America is unique in the world. Government’s power at all levels is limited to the confines of our Constitution, which protects our God-given liberties and civil rights. We are not – and will not – be the subjects of an elite class of so-called experts. We the people are the government.

At times, our country has struggled to live up to our founding principles. Another great American, Abraham Lincoln, knew that struggle better than anybody.

When he was just 28 years old, Honest Abe saw wild and furious passions, “worse than savage mobs,” he said, taking the place of reasoned judgment. He was alarmed by the increasing disregard for the rule of law throughout the country.

He was concerned for the people who had seen their property destroyed, their families attacked, and their lives threatened or even taken away. These good people were becoming tired of, and disgusted with, a government that offered them no protection.

Sound familiar?

It took 244 years to build this great nation – flaws and all – but we stand to lose it in a tiny fraction of that time if we continue down the path taken by the Democrats and their radical supporters.

From Seattle and Portland to Washington and New York, Democrat-run cities across this country are being overrun by violent mobs. The violence is rampant. There’s looting, chaos, destruction, and murder. People that can afford to flee have fled. But the people that can’t – good, hard-working Americans – are left to fend for themselves.

The Republican Party’s commitment to individual rights and self-government is as necessary today as it was in 1860 when we won our first presidential election.

Our party respects individuals based on who they are. We don’t divide people based on their beliefs or their roots. We don’t shun people who think for themselves. We respect everyone equally under the Constitution and treat them as Martin Luther King, Jr. wished, according to the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

In just four years, President Trump has lifted people of all races and backgrounds out of poverty. He shrunk government and put money back into the pockets of hardworking, ordinary Americans. He has advanced religious liberty and protected the Second Amendment. You can look back 50 years, and you won’t find anyone that has surpassed President Trump’s success on these four issues alone.

President Trump places the American people, American liberty, American security, and the American Constitution before all else. He honors the fact that the American people provide the “consent of the governed” on which legitimate government depends.

History chooses its heroes for the time in which they live. At our founding, Madison was one of the chosen. When the nation’s very existence was challenged it was Lincoln’s turn. Thanks to these men, America is a land of hope. Their examples have been repeated in countless ways by simple Americans following their consciences. But, there is another American hero to be recognized. That is the common American. This is who President Trump is fighting for. He’s fighting for you.

Scott Dane
Remarks as Prepared: 

I’m Scott Dane. I represent loggers and truckers in Minnesota. But I also represent a way of life.

Logging has been a part of the Great American Story from the beginning. In fact, if you go to the U.S. Capitol Rotunda and look up, you can see loggers on one of the panels—New England settlers carving out a new world from the wilderness.

Logging is the most dangerous job in the country but we embrace that risk because we know America was built by strong people building things together.

America needs us to keep building and we can’t wait to be part of it.  

But the last time Joe Biden was in the White House, Minnesota lost over half of its mills, thousands of jobs, and experienced nearly a decade of decline. The administration just didn’t seem to care. In 47 years in Washington, Joe Biden hasn’t done anything for the timber industry.

When plants closed in Duluth, Sartel, and International Falls, they were just numbers on a paper to the Obama-Biden administration. To me, they were people and jobs and families.

Under Obama-Biden, radical environmentalists were allowed to kill the forests. Wildfire after wildfire shows the consequences. Managed Forests—the kind my people work in, are healthy forests.

Under President Trump, we’ve seen a new recognition of the value of forest management in reducing wildfires. And we’ve seen new support for our way of life—where a strong back and a strong work ethic can build a strong middle class.

We want to build families where we’re raised and stand by communities that have stood by us. We want that way of life available for the next generation and we want our forests there too.

President Trump, thank you for helping us do just that.

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Remarks as Prepared: 

America is a nation of heroes. In times of difficulty, we’re reminded that they’re all around us.

They’re in line with us at the grocery store, and in the pew with us at church. 

They’re the regular Americans who step up to volunteer and serve when we need them most.

They’ve stood at the forefront throughout this pandemic. 

The Emergency Room nurses who go back shift after shift.

The medical researchers developing a vaccine and therapies to combat what the Chinese Communist regime unleashed on the world.

The Double Springs Church of Christ members, lifting our country up in prayer and providing for those impacted.

But tonight, I want to talk to you about another kind of hero. The kind Democrats don’t recognize, because they don’t fit into their narrative.

I’m talking about the heroes of our law enforcement and armed services.  

Leftists try to turn them into villains. They try to “cancel” them. But I’m here to tell you that these heroes can’t be cancelled. 

Tennessee is full of them—after all, we’re the volunteer state.

My dad served in the Army in World War II. When he came home he put on another uniform and for thirty years, volunteered to help our underfunded Sheriff’s department. 

I’m reminded of him whenever I see compassion and selflessness in others.

When I see law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every single day to keep our communities safe, in spite of the hatred thrown at them.

When I see the heroes who volunteer to serve our country — putting their lives on the line for our freedom.

Many of those heroes call Tennessee home – we could not be more proud of the brave men and women of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell.

The common thread between them is a deep-seated desire to serve a cause larger than themselves.

They don’t believe their country owes them anything. They believe they owe their country, and their fellow man.

As hard as Democrats try, they can’t cancel our heroes. They can’t contest their bravery, and they can’t dismiss the powerful sense of service that lives deep in their souls.

So they try to defund them —our military, our police, even ICE — to take away their tools to keep us safe. 

Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and their radical allies try to destroy these heroes, because if there are no heroes to inspire us—government can control us.

They close our churches, but keep the liquor stores and abortion clinics open. They say we can’t gather in groups at church, but encourage protests, riots, and looting in the streets.

If the Democrats had their way, they would keep you locked in your house until you become dependent on the government for everything. That sounds a lot like Communist China to me —maybe that’s why Joe Biden is so soft on them. Why Nancy Pelosi says that “China would prefer Joe Biden.”

Yeah, I bet they would.

But President Trump has stood up for our heroes every day.

He’s stood by our law enforcement, our military, and the freedoms we hold dear.

He’s made good on his promise to put America first. 

And I hope you will stand with me as we send him back for four more years with a clear message to the Democrats: you will never cancel our heroes.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (TX-02)
Remarks as Prepared:

I’m Congressman Dan Crenshaw.

8 years ago, in the fields of Helmand Province, Afghanistan, a close of friend and teammate laid down cover fire against Taliban insurgents so that I could walk – blind and bloodied – to the Medevac helicopter and survive.

But he didn’t. Dave was killed two months later. He died a hero to this great country.

Here’s the truth about America: we are a country of heroes. I believe that, so should you.

We are a people with a common set of ideals conceived in liberty.

A people that has sacrificed time and again — for our freedom, and the freedom of others.

That’s something no other country — ever, anywhere — can claim.

Since 9/11 I’ve seen America’s heroes up close. Some of them saved my life. Some of them saved many other’s lives. Many of them never made it home.

These heroes acted as if the whole struggle depended on them alone, as if any weakness on their part would be a reflection on the whole nation. That’s called duty, and America has a long history of it.

Our enemies fear us because Americans fight for good, and we know it….it gives us strength. And when our heroes are trusted and equipped, then freedom prevails.

The defeat of ISIS was the result of America believing in our heroes, our President having their backs and rebuilding our military so we’d have what we needed to finish the mission.  

The cowering of Iran and the restoration of the deterrence once lost is the result of America believing in her own might again.

But America’s heroism is not relegated to the battlefield.

Every single day we see them… if you just know where to look.

It’s the nurse who volunteers for back to back shifts caring for COVID patients because she feels that’s her duty.

It’s the parent who will re-learn algebra because there’s no way they’re letting their kid fall behind while schools are closed.

It’s the cop that gets spit on one day and will save a child’s life the next.

America is the country where the young military wife with two young children answers the unexpected knock at the door, looks the man in uniform in the eye, and — even as her whole world comes crashing down — stands up straight, holds back tears, and takes care of her family…because she must.

This is what heroism looks like. It’s who we are – a nation of heroes, and we need you now more than ever. We need to remind ourselves what heroism really is.

Heroism is self-sacrifice, not moralizing and lecturing over others when they disagree.

Heroism is grace, not perpetual outrage.

Heroism is rebuilding our communities, not destroying them.

Heroism is renewing faith in the symbols that unite us, not tearing them down.

You see, America is a fabric woven from the threads of history’s best stories, best attributes, and greatest ideas. The American spirit reflects the oldest and most important virtues: self-sacrifice, courage, tolerance, love of country, grace, and passion for human achievement.

We can decide right now that American greatness will not be rejected nor squandered. As the American founding was grounded in individual liberty, so will be our future.

But if we are to rediscover our strength, then it must be an endeavor undertaken by each and every one of us.

We must become the heroes that we so admire.

America was built by them and our future will be protected by them. It will be protected by you.

God Bless America.

The Honorable Keith Kellogg
Remarks as Prepared: 

In 1967, at the age of 22, I volunteered to serve my country in Vietnam. From the jungles of Vietnam to the deserts of Iraq-I have gone where my nation asked.

I have borne witness to soldiers’ last moments on earth, their lives spent in the hope and promise of a better future for all Americans.

I was in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001—I lost friends there that day. In the years that followed, I watched my daughter, son, and son-in-law deploy to Afghanistan. I have looked into the eyes of my grandchildren as they said goodbye to their fathers and hugged them one last time.

I lived service.  I understand sacrifice.  I know leadership.

Over the past three and a half years, I have witnessed every major foreign policy and national security decision by the President. I have been in the room where it happened. I saw only one agenda and one guiding question when tough calls had to be made…is this decision right for America?

When President Donald Trump took office, decades of failed foreign policy had crippled us. He faced wars without end in sight, creation of failed states like Libya and Syria, a past that allowed a terrorist caliphate to grow, and leadership in Washington that allowed our military to atrophy while we spent trillions of dollars abroad instead of investing at home.

President Trump has reversed the decline of our military and restructured our national security strategy. With historic investment and vision, our military is now better equipped, better resourced and better manned than any military in the world. 

President Trump demolished the terrorist ISIS Caliphate in the Middle East and eliminated its leader, al-Baghdadi, one of the world’s most brutal murderers.

President Trump took decisive action against Iranian terrorist mastermind Qasim Soleimani—a man responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American servicemen in Iraq.

When our NATO allies failed to meet their commitments as we upheld ours, President Trump demanded parity. NATO members have now increased their contributions over $100 Billion this year and NATO’s Secretary General credits … President Donald J. Trump.

President Trump challenged, and continues to challenge, an increasingly provocative and militant China.

But make no mistake, President Trump is no hawk. He wisely wields the sword when required, but believes in seeking peace instead of perpetual conflict.

Just over a week ago, our President brokered a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, the first in the Middle East in over 25 years.

And this week, Afghan negotiators, with help from American officials, will start peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan government to end America’s longest war.

Ask yourself, has this President kept his promises…to keep us out of needless conflicts and to pursue ending wars without end?  Has he defended your interests in renegotiating trade deals that previously hurt Americans and our national security? Has he fulfilled his Commander in Chief role by decisively going after our Nation’s enemies?

You and I know, the answer is yes. The choice is clear. This is the most important election of our lifetimes. The next four years will decide the course of our country for decades to come. I am asking you to stand up and be counted, so we never have to look back and recall what it was once like in America when men and women were free, our families were secure — and we had a President who served the people.

God Bless America.

Thank you and good night.

Representative Lee Zeldin (NY-01)
Remarks as Prepared:

I’m Congressman Lee Zeldin, coming to you tonight from the VFW hall in [INSERT LOCATION], New York.

Tonight we’re celebrating America as a Land of Heroes. I’ve seen my fair share — from the heroes policing the streets of Suffolk County, to those patrolling war-torn provinces of Iraq.

This is personal.

I grew up in a law enforcement household and, today, I serve as a Lt. Colonel in the Army Reserve. On active duty, I deployed to Iraq as an 82nd Airborne paratrooper.

My generation of post-9/11 service members has huge shoes to fill following in the footsteps of veterans like those of our nation’s greatest generation who once put humanity on their shoulders and saved the world.

It’s been said, our Nation at times asks ordinary men to do extraordinary things.

Americans always rise to the challenge.

All over our country there are everyday heroes who serve and sacrifice for the greater good.

Farmers, truckers, craftsmen — the heroes who keep our country running. The ones who our

President, Donald Trump, fights for with his policies and actions.

This year, we’ve especially relied on one particular group of everyday heroes. Our frontline medical workers.

My twin daughters, Mikayla and Arianna, were born over fourteen weeks early. They weighed just a pound and a half.

At 2 weeks old, Mikayla went into septic shock, had a stroke and underwent brain surgery leaving a third of the left side of her brain as a hole. Her doctors didn’t believe Mikayla would survive, fearing dire, permanent consequences even if she did.

Through the miracles of modern medicine, the power of prayer, and her will to live, my daughters are now starting high school and doing great, with no long term consequences from those first few months in the NICU.

Needless to say, doctors and nurses hold a special place in my heart. They saved my baby girls.

So when my hometown Suffolk County Executive told me late one Saturday night in April that the county’s stockpile of PPE was depleted because of COVID-19, I immediately thought of our doctors and nurses.

Jared Kushner was on the phone with me right away and late into that night, wanting to help however possible.

The very next day, President Trump announced he was immediately sending 200,000 n-95 masks to Suffolk. It actually ended up being almost 400,000.

That number quickly grew to a staggering 1.2 million items of PPE in just one month, including masks, gowns, and more.

The President sent thousands of ventilators to New York. He deployed the USS Comfort and converted the Javits Center to ensure our hospitals would never be overwhelmed.

The administration delivered public, private, and semi-automated lab testing approvals at blinding speed.

The President’s phenomenal effort delivered for our frontline workers. In the midst of a once-in-a-century pandemic — an unforeseeable crisis sent to us from a faraway land — the President delivered for our everyday heroes.

We weren’t Republicans or Democrats. We were Americans first, working together to get through this as one nation, with the Trump administration eager to do everything in its power to assist us however possible.

For our nation to be even stronger, more prosperous, safer, freer and more secure than ever before, to make our country greater than ever, we must re-elect President Trump.

We are the land of the free, because of the brave, and we are the land of opportunity right now, because we have a President who wants to empower the best of who we are, to be the best of what we can be.

There’s never been a nation greater than ours, never a people more resilient than ours, and never a future for America more promising than ours, right now. Let’s do our part and Keep

America Great.

Tera Myers
Remarks as Prepared: 

Good Evening, my name is Tera Myers. Tonight I am here as a wife and mother to share how education freedom has personally impacted my family, especially the life of my son Samuel.

Before Samuel was even born I was told his life wouldn’t be worth living. 

When early tests revealed he had Down Syndrome, our doctor encouraged me to terminate the pregnancy. He said “If you do not, you will be burdening your life, family and your community.”

I knew my baby was a human being created by God and that made him worthy of life. I am thankful that President Trump values the life of the unborn.

When we went to register Samuel for kindergarten we were told to just “put him where he would be comfortable, don’t stress him out by trying to teach him”. 

When we pushed for him to attend his neighborhood school with his sisters, we were told to “just go home and let us do what we do.” 

When I inquired about functional learning I was told “this is all you get, like it or not”. 

I did not like it. One size did not fit all.

So I helped fight to pass legislation in Ohio for a special needs scholarship, so that all students could choose the right program for their needs. 

I worked to start a new functional learning program at our local private school. 

Finally, Samuel had an appropriate place to learn.

Recently Samuel was invited to the White House to meet with our President and share his thoughts on Education Freedom. He said “School Choice helped my dreams come true. My school taught me the way I learn best and I was able to fit in. I made many friends and became a part of my community. My teachers helped me become the best I can be”. 

President Trump shook my hand and said “Wonderful job Mom, your son is amazing”. Unlike the doctor who told me to end Samuel’s life before it even began, President Trump did not dismiss my son, he showed Samuel he valued him and was proud of what he accomplished. 

President Trump gave Samuel an equal seat at the table. 

Tonight, I would like to extend my thanks to President Trump and his administration for their work towards making every student’s dream of a meaningful education a reality. 

And for fighting to ensure every child in America has an equal seat at the table of Education Freedom, and an equal opportunity in life.

Thank you and may God Bless America!

The Honorable Kayleigh McEnany
Remarks as Prepared: 

I’m Kayleigh McEnany.

Most of you know me as a supporter of President Trump, but tonight I’m here to share with you how he supported me– both as a new mom and as an American with a preexisting condition.  

It was days before Christmas, and I was 21-years-old when I got a call that changed my life.

It was my doctor, informing me that I had tested positive for the BRCAII genetic mutation— a mutation that put my chances of breast cancer at 84%. 

It was the same mutation that my mom had, compelling her to get a preventative mastectomy– removing her breast tissue but protecting her from a disease that has taken far too many of our mothers, our sisters, our friends. 

In my family, 8 women were diagnosed with breast cancer — several in their 20s.

I now faced the same prospect. For nearly a decade, I was routinely at my cancer hospital, getting MRIs and ultrasounds and participating in necessary surveillance.

During these visits, I crossed paths with brave women, battling cancer and fighting through chemotherapy. They were a testament to American strength. They are American heroes.

On May 1, 2018, I followed in my mother’s footsteps, choosing to get a preventative mastectomy.

I was scared. The night before I fought back tears, as I prepared to lose a piece of myself.

But the next day, with my mom, dad, husband, and Jesus Christ by my side, I underwent a mastectomy, almost eliminating my chance of breast cancer— a decision I now celebrate.

During one of my most difficult times, I expected to have the support of my family, but I had more support than I knew.

As I came out of anesthesia, one of the first calls I received was from Ivanka Trump.

Days later, as I recovered, my phone rang. It was President Trump, calling to check on me.

I was blown away. 

Here was the leader of the free world caring about me. 

Though I didn’t personally know the President at the time, I know him well now and I can tell you that this President loves the American people, stands by Americans with preexisting conditions, and supports working moms.  

When I started working for President Trump, my husband and I became pregnant with our first child, I would see President Trump at rallies. He would routinely ask me how my baby was doing.

The same way President Trump has supported me, he supports you.

I see it every day. 

I’ve heard him say the hardest part of his job is writing to loved ones of fallen soldiers. 

I’ve seen him offer heartfelt outreach to grieving parents who lost their children to crime in the streets. 

I’ve watched him fight for Americans who lost their jobs.

President Trump fights for the American People because he cares about stories like these.

Now, my daughter is 9-months-old. She’s a beautiful, sweet little girl.

and I choose to work for this President for her. 

When I look into my baby’s eyes, I see a new life, a miracle for which I have a solemn responsibility to protect.

That means protecting America’s future— a future President Trump will fight for

where our neighborhoods are protected.

where life is sacred.

where God is cherished– not taken out of our schools, removed from our Pledge, and erased from our history.

I want my daughter to grow up in President Donald Trump’s America.

Choosing to have a preventative mastectomy was the hardest decision I have made.

But supporting President Trump, who will protect my daughter & our children’s future, was the easiest.

Second Lady Karen Pence
Remarks as Prepared:    

Good evening! I’m Karen Pence. My husband is Vice President Mike Pence.

100 years ago, today, the 19th Amendment was adopted into the US Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote. Because of heroes like Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone, women today, like our daughters, Audrey and Charlotte, and future generations, will have their voices heard and their votes count.

The women’s suffrage movement was the gateway that led to women having the opportunities to achieve monumental milestones and accomplish significant achievements in both civic and governmental roles.

This evening, we look at heroes in our land.

As Second Lady of the United States for the past 3 and a half years, I have had the honor of meeting many heroes across this great country.

The Pences are a military family. Our son, Michael, serves in the US Marines, and our son in law, Henry, serves in the US Navy.

And one of my key initiatives is to elevate and encourage military spouses. These men and women, like our daughter, Charlotte, and our daughter in law, Sarah, are the home front heroes.

 I have been privileged to hear so many stories of selfless support, volunteer spirit, and great contributions to the Armed Forces and our communities. Military spouses may experience frequent moves, job changes, periods of being a single parent while their loved one is deployed—all while exhibiting pride, strength, and determination and being a part of something bigger than themselves. To all of the military spouses, thank you.

President Trump and Vice President Pence have been supporting our United States Armed Forces, including our military families, on a significant scale. While traveling throughout our nation to educate military spouses about policy solutions President Trump has promoted, involving real, tangible progress in military spouse employment, I have been inspired to meet heroes like Lisa Bradley and Cameron Cruse.

 These military spouses decided to start their own business, R. Riveter, named after the Rosie the Riveter campaign used to recruit women workers during World War II. R. Riveter makes beautiful handbags designed and manufactured exclusively by military spouses. Many of those spouses live all over the country. They prepare and send their section of the bags to the company located in North Carolina where the final product is assembled.

Military spouse hero Jilan Hall-Johnson in Billings, Montana is a culinary artist who had dreamed of starting her own restaurant. Working with the Small Business Administration’s Development Center, Jilan started her restaurant, the Sassy Biscuit. And she just opened a second restaurant in Dover, New Hampshire.

And as the Second Lady, I’ve also been able to bring awareness to a form of therapy for our heroic veterans suffering from PTSD. Art therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, is especially effective with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Master Gunnery Sergeant Chris Stowe, a Marine veteran I met in Tampa, who deployed for combat in Iraq and Afghanistan ……..said nothing had helped him deal with the trauma from his service in the Marines until he finally agreed to meet with the art therapist at Walter Reed Medical Center. Chris credits art therapy with saving his marriage and his life. And Chris went on to establish a glass blowing workshop to help other vets.

Many of our veteran heroes struggle as they transition back into civilian life. Sometimes the stress is too difficult to manage alone. A few weeks ago, I had the honor of speaking with some amazing Americans who answer the Veterans Crisis Line. One in particular, Sidney Morgan, especially impacted me. A veteran herself, Sidney said it is the highest honor of her life to be on the other end of the phone to hold a veteran’s hand every step of the way until they physically walk into a clinic to receive help they deserve and she can pass their hand to someone ready to help.

In these difficult times, we’ve all seen so many examples of everyday Americans reaching out a hand to those in need, those who “in humility have considered others more important than themselves.” We’ve seen healthcare workers, teachers, first responders, mental health providers, law enforcement officers, grocery and delivery workers, and farmers, and so many others. Heroes all!

100 years ago, today, women secured the right to vote. So let’s vote, America! Let’s honor our heroes! Let’s reelect President Trump and Vice President Pence for 4 more years!

God bless our heroes. God bless the United States of America.

Thank you.

Kellyanne Conway
Remarks as Prepared:

Good Evening. One hundred years ago, courageous warriors helped women secure the right to vote. This has been a century worth celebrating, but also a reminder that our democracy is young and fragile. A woman in a leadership role still can seem novel.

Not so for President Trump. For decades, he has elevated women to senior positions in business and in government. He confides in and consults us, respects our opinions, and insists that we are on equal footing with the men. President Trump helped me shatter a barrier in the world of politics by empowering me to manage his campaign to its successful conclusion. With the help of millions of Americans, our team defied the critics, questionable polls and conventional wisdom — and we won.

For many of us, “women’s empowerment” is not a slogan. It comes not from strangers on social media or sanitized language in a corporate handbook. It comes from the everyday heroes who nurture us, who shape us, and who believe in us. I was raised in a household of all women. They were self-reliant and resilient. Their lives were not easy. Money was tight, but we had an abundance of what mattered most: family, faith, freedom.

I learned that in America, limited means does not make for limited dreams. The promise of America belongs to us all. This is a land of inventors and innovators, of entrepreneurs and educators, or pioneers and parents, all contributing to the success and the future of a great nation and her people.

These everyday heroes have a champion in President Trump.

The teacher who took the extra time to help students adjust to months of virtual learning. The nurse who finished a 12-hour shift and then took a brief break only to change her mask, gown and gloves to do it all over again. The small business owner striving to reopen after the lockdown was lifted, and then again after her store was vandalized and looted. The single mom with 2 kids, 2 jobs, 2 commutes and still no health insurance 10 years after she was fed an empty promise. The 96-year old veteran who improbably survived D-Day at Normandy only to face uncertainty at home about whether he can access quality, timely care.

President Trump and Vice President Pence have lifted Americans, provided them with dignity, opportunity and results. I have seen firsthand, many times the President comforting and encouraging a child who has lost a parent, a parent who has lost a child, a worker who lost his job, an adolescent who has lost her way to drugs. “Don’t lose hope” he has told them, assuring them that they are not alone, that we see them, we hear them and that we are here to help them.

 There always will be people who have far more than us. Our responsibility is to focus on those who have far less than us. When President Trump asked me to coordinate the White House efforts on combatting the drug crisis, he said, “This is personal, Kellyanne. So many lives have been ruined by addiction and we’ll never even know it because people are ashamed to reach out for help, or they’re not sure who to turn to in their toughest hour.

Rather than look the other way, President Trump stared directly at this drug “crisis next door” and, through landmark, bipartisan legislation has helped secure historic investments in surveillance, interdiction, education, prevention, treatment and recovery. We have a long way to go, but the political inertia that cost lives and the silence and stigma that prevents people in need from coming forward is melting away.

This is the man I know and the President we need. He picks the toughest fights and tackles the most complex problems. He has stood by me, and he will stand up for you.

In honor of the women who empowered me and for the future of the children we all cherish, thank you and God bless you.

Sister Dede Byrne
Remarks as Prepared: 

Good evening.  I’m Sister Dede Byrne. I belong to the community of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Last fourth of July, I was honored to be one of the President’s guests at his “Salute to America” celebration.

I must confess that I recently prayed while in chapel, begging God to allow me to be a voice and instrument for human life, and now here I am, speaking at the Republican National Convention. 

I guess you better be careful for what you pray for!

My journey to religious life was not a traditional route…if there is such a thing.

In 1978, as a medical school student at Georgetown University, I joined the Army to help pay for my tuition and ended up devoting 29 years to the military, serving as a doctor and a surgeon in places like Afghanistan and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. 

After much prayer and contemplation, I entered my religious order in 2002 and worked serving the poor and sick in Kenya, Haiti, Sudan, Iraq and in D.C. 

Humility is at the foundation of our order, which makes it very difficult to talk about myself, but I can speak about my experience working for those fleeing war torn and impoverished countries around the world. Those refugees all share a common experience. They have all been marginalized; viewed as insignificant, powerless and voiceless.

And while we tend to think of the marginalized as living beyond our borders, the truth is, the largest marginalized group in the world can be found in the United States. They are the unborn.

As Christians, we first met Jesus as a stirring embryo in the womb of an unwed mother and saw him born nine months later in the poverty of the cave. It’s no coincidence that Jesus stood up for what was just and was ultimately crucified because what he said wasn’t politically correct or fashionable. 

As followers of Christ, we are called to stand up for life and against the politically correct or fashionable today. We must fight against a legislative agenda that supports and even celebrates destroying life in the womb. In fact, the laws we create define how we see our humanity. And we must ask ourselves, what are we saying when we go into a womb and snuff out an insignificant, powerless, voiceless life.

As a physician, I can say unequivocally life begins at conception.

While what I have to say may be difficult for some to hear, I am saying it because I’m not just pro-life, I’m pro-eternal life and I want all of us to end up in heaven someday together.

Which brings me to why I’m here tonight. Donald Trump is the most pro-life President that this nation has ever had, defending life at all stages. His belief in the sanctity of life transcends politics. President Trump will stand up against Biden/Harris who are the most anti-life presidential ticket ever, even supporting the horrors of late-term abortion and infanticide.

Because of his courage and conviction, President Trump has earned the support of America’s pro-life community. Moreover, he has a nationwide army of religious standing behind him. You’ll find us with our weapon of choice…the rosary!

Thank you Mr. President. We are all praying for you.     

Lou Holtz
Remarks as Prepared: 

I’m Lou Holtz. Many of you might know me as Coach Holtz – or maybe “that football guy.”

It is a pleasure, a blessing, and an honor for me to explain why I believe that President Trump is a consistent winner, an outstanding leader, and deserves to be re-elected as our President.

First I want you to know that I grew up in a one-bedroom house in West Virginia. I may have been poor, but the lessons my parents taught me were priceless.

They taught me that life is about making choices. Wherever you are, good or bad, don’t blame anyone else. Go get an education. Get to work. You can overcome any obstacles and always remember, that in this great country of ours – anyone can amount to something special.

I’ve lived by those principles of hard work and responsibility my whole life – living out the American story. And it works!

But there are people today; like politicians, professors and protestors and of course President Trump’s naysayers in the media who like to blame others for problems.

They don’t have pride in our country. And because they no longer ask “what can I do for my country, only what the country should be doing for them,” they don’t have pride in themselves.

That’s wrong. 

When I was an Army officer, I served with so many great Americans who embraced their responsibility to our country. I am so proud of their sacrifice and the opportunity it has provided for so many millions.

America remains the land of opportunity no matter what the other side says or believes.

You know, there is a statue of me at Notre Dame – I guess they needed a place for the pigeons to land. But if you look closely you will see three words there. Trust, Commitment, and Love.

All my life I’ve made my choices based on these three words. I used these rules to make choices about everything – my beloved wife of 59 years, athletes I coached, and of course politicians, even President Trump.

I ask myself three things.

One – can I trust them?

When a leader tells you something, you’ve got to be able to count on it. That’s President Trump. He says what he means, he means what he says, and he’s done what he said he would do at every single turn. 

One of the important reasons he has my trust is because nobody has been a stronger advocate for the unborn than President Trump. The Biden-Harris ticket is the most radically pro-abortion campaign in history. They and other politicians are “Catholics in Name Only” and abandon innocent lives. President Trump protects those lives. 

I trust President Trump.

The second question I ask is – Are they committed to doing their best?

President Trump always finds a way to get something done. If you want to do something bad enough, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse, and excuses are a lot easier to find than solutions. President Trump finds solutions.

President Trump is committed.

And the third question I ask is – do they love people. Do they care about others?

To me this is very clear. President Trump has demonstrated through his prison reform, advocating for school choice, and welfare reform that he wants Americans from all walks of life to have the opportunity to succeed and live the American dream.

President Trump loves our Country, and our great people.

Trust. Commitment. Love.

In President Trump we have a President we can trust, who works hard at making America greater, and who genuinely cares about people.

If I apply this test to Joe Biden – I can’t say yes to any of these three questions.

I used to ask our athletes at Notre Dame, “If you did not show up who would miss you and why?”

Can you imagine what would happen to us if President Trump had not shown up in 2016 to run for President? I am so glad he showed up.

Thank you for showing up Mr. President!

I encourage everyone who loves this country, who loves America, to show up in November for President Trump.

Thank you!

Michael McHale
Remarks as Prepared:

Hi I’m Michael McHale, but my friends call me “Mick”. I proudly served for 27-years with the Sarasota, Florida Police Department and currently serve with the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority Police Department.  I am also the president of the National Association of Police Organizations.

Our organization recently endorsed Donald Trump for re-election as President of the United States. Our endorsement recognized his strong support for the men and women on the front lines, particularly during these challenging times. We value his support of aggressive federal prosecution of those who attack our police officers, his signing of the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act, and his backing of legislation, which permanently authorized funds to support 9/11 first responders and their families.

Law enforcement officers across the nation take an oath to run towards danger when everyone else is running away – and they do so willingly to protect our families and communities. 

And when it comes to rogue police, let me be clear: nobody hates bad cops more than good cops. I’m proud that the overwhelming majority of American police officers are the best of the best and put their lives on the line without hesitation. And good officers need to know that their elected leaders and the department brass have their backs.

Unfortunately, chaos results when elected officials in cities like Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York make the conscious and very public decision not to support law enforcement. Shootings, murders, looting and rioting occur unabated. The violence we are seeing in these and other cities isn’t happening by chance; it’s the direct result of elected leaders refusing to allow law enforcement to protect our communities.  

I’m shocked and disgusted by how far left Joe Biden has swung and how anti-law enforcement he has become. And Kamala Harris’ legislation to further restrict police would make our American communities and streets even more dangerous than they already are.

Like many others on the left who want to defund the police, Senator Harris’ legislation provides less training, not more, for law enforcement. Conversely, President Trump supports the creation of a national standard for training on de-escalation and communication to give officers more tools to resolve conflict without violence.   

The differences between Trump/Pence and Biden/Harris are crystal clear. We invite those who value the safety of their family and loved ones to join the hundreds of thousands of members of the National Association of Police Organizations and support the re-election of President Donald J. Trump!  Thank you.  

Representative Elise Stefanik (NY-21)
Remarks as Prepared: 

I’m Congresswoman Elise Stefanik and I am honored to represent New York’s 21st Congressional District – the cradle of the American Revolution.

It’s where almost 250 years ago, brave patriots fought in the Battles of Saratoga to turn the tide of the Revolutionary War. It’s where forty years ago in Lake Placid, a team of amateur hockey players out-hustled, out-skated, and defeated the Soviet Union, stunning the world and giving us the unforgettable Miracle on Ice. And today, it’s home to Fort Drum and the historic 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed unit in the U.S. Army since 9/11. Where I saw firsthand President Trump graciously thank and honor our men and women in uniform and sign the largest pay raise for our troops in a decade.

Since our nation’s founding, generation after generation of everyday Americans served and sacrificed to preserve and strengthen the American Dream. The vision of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – and the idea that if you work hard and dream big, you can achieve anything you imagine.

I believe in the American Dream because I’ve lived it. Like millions of Americans, I grew up in a small business family where I learned the values of hard work and determination. I was the first person in my immediate family to graduate from college, ran for Congress to serve Upstate New York, and am proudly the youngest Republican woman ever elected to Congress in history.

I am honored to support President Trump for re-election because I know that he is the only candidate who will stand up for hardworking families and protect the American Dream for future generations.

Since his first day in office, President Trump has fought tirelessly to deliver results for all Americans, despite the Democrats’ baseless and illegal impeachment sham and the media’s endless obsession with it. I was proud to lead the effort standing up for the Constitution, President Trump, and most importantly the American people. This attack was not just on the President, it was an attack on you – your voice and your vote.

But the American people were not swayed by these partisan attacks. Our support for President Trump is stronger than ever before. We know what’s at stake in this historic election. Americans from all walks of life are unified in support of our President. It’s why more Republican women than ever are running for office this year. We understand that this election is a choice between the Far-Left Democratic Socialist agenda versus protecting and preserving the American Dream.

President Trump is working to safely re-open our Main Street economy. He understands that the engine of our country is fueled by the ingenuity and determination of American workers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. Joe Biden wants to keep them locked up in the basement and crush them with $4 trillion in new taxes. 

Now we face a critical choice: Joe Biden’s Far-Left Socialist policies that will weaken America or President Trump who will stand up for the American people and the Constitution. I believe in the wisdom and spirit of the American people to elect the only candidate who is capable of protecting the American Dream, President Trump.

Thank you to the North Country for the opportunity to serve as your voice supporting his re-election.

God bless the United States of America, the greatest country on Earth.

Madison Cawthorn
Remarks as Prepared: 

Good evening, I am Madison Cawthorn, and I am running to represent North Carolina’s 11th congressional district.

This is a time of great adversity for our country. And I know something about adversity.

At 18, I was in a horrific car accident that left me paralyzed from the waist down. Instantly, my hopes and dreams were seemingly destroyed. I was given a one percent chance of surviving. Thanks to the power of prayer, a loving community, and skilled doctors, I made it.

It took me over a year to recover. My first public outing in a wheelchair was to a baseball game. Before my accident, I was 6’ 3”. I stood out in a crowd. But as I was wheeled through the stadium, I felt invisible.

At 20, I thought about giving up. However, I knew I could still make a difference. My accident gave me new eyes to see, and new ears to hear. God protected my mind and my ability to speak. I say to people who feel forgotten, ignored, and invisible: I see you. I hear you.

At 20, I made a choice. In 2020, our country has a choice. We can give up on the American idea, or we can work together to make our imperfect union more perfect.

I choose to fight for the future, to seize the high ground and retake the Shining City on a Hill. While the radical left wants to dismantle, defund, and destroy, Republicans, under President Trump’s leadership, want to rebuild, restore and renew.

I just turned 25. When I’m elected this November, I’ll be the youngest member of Congress in over 200 years.

If you don’t think young people can change the world, then you don’t know American history.

George Washington was 21 when he received his first military commission.

Abe Lincoln was 22 when he first ran for office.

James Madison was 25 when he signed the Declaration of Independence.

In times of peril, young people saved this country abroad and at home. We held the line, scaled cliffs, crossed oceans, liberated camps and cracked codes.

Yet, today political forces want to usher in the digital dark ages – a time of information without wisdom and tribalism without truth.

National leaders on the left have normalized demagoguery and a radicalized identity politics that rejects MLK’s dream.

MLK’s dream is our dream – – for all Americans to be judged solely on their character. Millions of people risk their lives to come here because they believe in the dream of MLK and the American dream. Join us, as we, the party of freedom, double down on ensuring the American Dream for all people.

We are committed to building a new town square. It welcomes all ideas and people. Here, we will have freedom of speech, not freedom from speech.

To liberals, let’s have a conversation. Be a true liberal, listen to other ideas and let the best ones prevail.

To conservatives, let’s define what we support and win the argument in areas like health care and the environment.

In this new town square, you don’t have to apologize for your beliefs or cower to a mob. You can kneel before God but stand for our flag.

The American idea my ancestors fought for during the Revolutionary War is as exciting and revolutionary today as it was 250 years ago. I say to Americans who love our country – young and old – be a radical for freedom. Be a radical for liberty. Be a radical for our republic. For which I stand.

One nation. Under God. With liberty and justice for all.

Thank you.

Chen Guangcheng​
Remarks as Prepared: 

My name is Chen Guangcheng.

Standing up to tyranny is not easy. I know.

When I spoke out against China’s “one child” policy and other injustices, I was persecuted, beaten, and put under house arrest by the government.

In April, 2012, I escaped and was given shelter in the American embassy in Beijing.  I am forever grateful to the American people for welcoming me and my family to the United States where we are now free. 

The Chinese Communist Party is an enemy of humanity. It is terrorizing its own people and it is threatening the well-being of the world.

In China, expressing beliefs or ideas not approved by the CCP – religion, democracy, human rights – can lead to prison. The nation lives under mass surveillance and censorship. 

The CCP is focused on power and control, and acts without regard to the law or to human rights.  Countless activists have disappeared or are under house arrest. Just consider the sad plight of the Uyghurs in concentration camps.

Outside its borders, the CCP ignores international treaties and norms, whether it is violating the rights of Hong Kong, cheating on trade deals, threatening Taiwan, or exploiting the World Health Organization.

The coronavirus pandemic, originating in China—and covered up by the CCP—has caused mass death and social upheaval around the world.

In the same way, the virus of the CCP is threatening the people of the world.  The policy of appeasement of former administrations—including Obama and Biden—has allowed the CCP to infiltrate and corrode different aspects of the global community. 

The Chinese Communist Party goes through the dance of diplomacy . . . but it seeks to make the rest of the world bow to its authoritarian vision. The CCP is waiting patiently for the US and other democracies to bend to its will under fear of economic retribution.

The US must use its values of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law, to gather a coalition of other democracies to stop China’s aggression. President Trump has led on this and we need the other countries to join him in this fight. A fight for our future.

Standing up to fight unfairness is not easy. I know. So does President Trump . . . but he has shown the courage to wage that fight.

We need to support, vote, and fight for President Trump . . . for the sake of the world.

Thank you.

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA)
Remarks as Prepared:

Hello everyone and thank you for inviting me into your home this evening. It’s truly a privilege.

My name is Joni Ernst. I was raised on a small family farm here in Iowa, where I learned the importance of faith, hard work and service.

I worked my way through college, then dedicated my life to serving my country, as a local official, a battalion commander in the military, and as a U.S. Senator.

Service… it’s more than a word to me – it’s a mission. A way of life.

It’s what brought me to Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2008 when I was in the National Guard. We saw historic floods that swept through the communities. We lent a helping hand to our fellow Iowans who were literally under water.

We thought we had seen the worst. But, twelve years later, these same communities have faced an even more devastating disaster: the recent derecho storm.

If you don’t live in Iowa, you may not have heard much about it at first. While reporters here in the state were in the trenches covering the equivalent of a category two hurricane, most of the national media looked the other way. To them, Iowa is still just flyover country.

Houses, farms were destroyed. About one-third of our crops here were damaged.

In some cases, these storms wiped out a lifetime of work, and yet Iowa farmers didn’t hesitate to grab their chainsaws and check on their neighbors. Our farmers live every day with that sense of service. The stewards of the land — the ones who feed and fuel the world.

President Trump quickly signed an emergency declaration for Iowa to provide relief.

And, of course, when President Trump came to Cedar Rapids, the national media finally did too.

For years, I’ve worked closely with the president for farmers in Iowa and across the country.

We scrapped Obama and Biden’s punishing Waters of the United States rule, which would have regulated about 97 percent of land in Iowa – in some cases, even puddles. It would have been a nightmare for farmers.

The president delivered on major trade deals with Japan and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

And, he implemented the sale of E15 fuel year-round. That means more choices for you at the pump, and more jobs for farmers in the heartland. This is something the Obama-Biden administration failed to do in eight years.

In fact, I can’t recall an administration more hostile to farmers than Obama-Biden, unless you count the Biden-Harris ticket.

The Democratic Party of Joe Biden is pushing this so-called Green New Deal. If given power, they would essentially ban animal agriculture and eliminate gas-powered cars. It would destroy the agriculture industry, not just here in Iowa, but throughout the country.

When the pandemic hit, President Trump heard us in our call for assistance for our farmers. Knowing we have an ally in the White House is important.

Folks, this election is a choice between two very different paths.  

Freedom, prosperity, and economic growth, under a Trump-Pence administration. 

Or, the Biden-Harris path. Paved by liberal coastal elites and radical environmentalist. An America where farmers are punished, jobs are destroyed, and taxes crush the middle class.

That is our choice. And it’s a clear one.

Thank you and God bless.

Burgess Owens
Remarks as Prepared: 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m Burgess Owens.

Shackled in the belly of a slave ship, an 8-year-old named Silas Burgess came to America to be sold on an auction block.

By the grace of God, and the courage of slaves who believed in freedom, Silas escaped through the Underground Railroad and settled in the great state of Texas. 

He went on to become a successful entrepreneur. He built his community’s first church, first elementary school, and purchased 102 acres of farmland. 

I’m here today, a candidate for Congress, because of my great great grandfather, Silas Burgess.

I was raised in the South during the days of Jim Crow and the KKK. Even through the challenges of segregation, we were taught that anything is possible in America. 

When I was 22 years old, I thought all my dreams had come true when I was drafted by the New York Jets. 10 years later, with a Pro Bowl nod and a Super Bowl Championship under my belt, I left the NFL to start a business.

I thought I could never fail…but I did. And I lost everything.

As I moved my family of 6 into a 1 bedroom basement apartment in Brooklyn, NY, I faced a crossroads: feel sorry for myself.. or get to work. 

I worked as a Chimney Sweep during the day and a Security Guard at night. It was humbling to be recognized cleaning a chimney by someone who once cheered for me in an NFL stadium. 

But those hard days would pay off, and eventually I began a rewarding career in the corporate world. 

We live in a country where we’re encouraged to “Dream Big.” 

Where “second chances” are at the core of our American identity.

We don’t hear that same message from Nancy Pelosi’s congress. 

Career politicians and even a former bartender, want us to believe that’s impossible. 

They want us to believe that what I did, what my great-great grandfather did, is impossible for ordinary Americans. 

As patriots, we know better!

This November, we stand at a crossroads. 

Mobs torch our cities while popular members of Congress promote the same socialism my father fought against in World War II. 

We have a Democrat candidate for President who says that I’m “not black” if I don’t vote for him. 

Now, more than ever, we need leaders who stand by their principles and won’t compromise their values for political opportunities. 

Now, more than ever, we need leaders who will stand up to the lawlessness supported by the radical left.

This November, we have an opportunity to reject the mob mentality and once again be the America my great-great grandfather believed in. 

During the Trump administration, business ownership among blacks, Hispanics, and females have reached all-time highs. 

Those same groups enjoyed record low unemployment and unprecedented prosperity… and we’re just getting started!

I’m running for Congress because we don’t need more career politicians. We need a few more chimney sweeps.

We need more leaders like President Trump who understand the freedoms that make up the fabric of America.

My fellow Americans, specifically my Democrat and Independent friends, it is time for us to unite and to put aside partisan barriers. 

Help us win back the House, keep the Senate and give our President 4 more years… I promise we’ll make you proud!

Thank you.

America, Land of Heroes: RNC Day Three Preview

The third night of the Republican National Convention honors American heroes and their contributions to our great American story. President Trump has restored pride in America by honoring those heroes who have strived, achieved, and sacrificed on behalf of their fellow countrymen and women. Accordingly, Wednesday night’s theme is “Land of Heroes.”

Tonight’s speakers, American heroes from all walks of life, will share their incredible stories and how President Trump went out of his way to thank and honor them for their heroism. Americans will hear from Vice President Mike Pence at the conclusion of the evening.

Clarence Henderson, a civil rights activist who participated in the Greensboro sit-ins in 1960, will share his story, why he is supporting President Trump, and the President’s accomplishments for Black Americans.

  • “Freedom of thought is a powerful thing. There are African-American voters all over the country who the media is trying to convince to conform to the same old Democratic talking points. You know what that’ll get you? The same old results.”
  • “These achievements demonstrate that Donald Trump truly cares about black lives. His policies show his heart. He has done more for black Americans in four years than Joe Biden has done in 50!”

Chen Guangcheng, a Chinese human rights activist, will speak to the rising threat from Communist China and how President Trump is finally standing up to the Chinese after decades of failed appeasement.

  •  “In the same way, the virus of the CCP is threatening the people of the world.  The policy of appeasement of former administrations—including Obama and Biden—has allowed the CCP to infiltrate and corrode different aspects of the global community.”
  • “The US must use its values of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law, to gather a coalition of other democracies to stop China’s aggression.  President Trump has led on this and we need the other countries to join him in this fight.  A fight for our future.”

Lou Holtz, a college football legend, will share why he trusts President Trump, his commitment to the American people, and his love for our country.

  • “When a leader tells you something, you’ve got to be able to count on it. That’s President Trump. He says what he means, he means what he says, and he’s done what he said he would do at every single turn.”
  • “President Trump always finds a way to get something done. If you want to do something bad enough, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse, and excuses are a lot easier to find than solutions. President Trump finds solutions.”

Scott Dane, a logger and trucker from Minnesota, will share how President Trump has reinvigorated America’s workers and thank him for supporting a strong middle class.

  • “When plants closed in Duluth, Sartel, and International Falls, they were just numbers on a paper to the Obama-Biden administration. To me, they were people and jobs and families.”
  • “Under President Trump, we’ve seen a new recognition of the value of forest management in reducing wildfires. And we’ve seen new support for our way of life—where a strong back and a strong work ethic can build a strong middle class.”

Sister Deirdre “Dede” Byrne of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary will speak to President Trump’s unwavering commitment to the unborn and the pro-life cause.

  • “And while we tend to think of the marginalized as living beyond our borders, the truth is, the largest marginalized group in the world can be found in the United States. They are the unborn.”
  • “Donald Trump is the most pro-life President that this nation has ever had, defending life at all stages. His belief in the sanctity of life transcends politics.”

Sam Vigil, whose wife Jackie was shot and killed in her car in their garage, will share his tragic story and how President Trump has helped deliver justice for Jackie and other innocent victims of violent crime through Operation Legend.

  • “The police were overwhelmed. They needed help. Help arrived when President Trump launched Operation Legend in July of this year. Almost immediately, the FBI took over Jackie’s case. In a matter of days, they arrested four men. The fifth –  the suspected killer –  is in a Texas jail on unrelated charges.”
  • “I am extremely grateful to President Trump and the FBI for their efforts to deliver justice for Jackie and all the other innocent victims of violent crime.  I am honored to support the President because he is supporting us.”

Michael “Mick” McHale, a 27-year veteran of the Sarasota police department and president of the National Association of Police Organizations, will highlight why police officers across the country are overwhelmingly supporting President Trump.

  • “I’m proud that the overwhelming majority of American police officers are the best of the best and put their lives on the line without hesitation. And good officers need to know that their elected leaders and the department brass have their backs.”
  • “The violence we are seeing in these and other cities isn’t happening by chance; it’s the direct result of elected leaders refusing to allow law enforcement to protect our communities. “

Burgess Owens, a former NFL star now running for Congress in Utah, will share his story of “second chances” and how President Trump has delivered results for Black Americans.

  • “This November, we stand at a crossroads. Mobs torch our cities while popular members of Congress promote the SAME socialism my father fought against in World War II.”
  • “I’m running for Congress because we don’t need more career politicians. We need a few more chimney sweeps. We need more leaders like President Trump who understand the freedoms that make up the fabric of America.”

Keith Kellogg, a veteran of multiple wars and the current National Security Advisor to Vice President Mike Pence, will share how President Trump has put America’s best interests at the heart of every foreign policy decision he’s made.

  • “Over the past three and a half years, I have witnessed every major foreign policy and national security decision by the President  I have been in the room where it happened. I saw only one agenda and one guiding question when tough calls had to be made…is this decision right for America?”
  • “Ask yourself, has this President kept his promises…to keep us out of needless conflicts and to pursue ending wars without end? Has he defended your interests in renegotiating trade deals that previously hurt Americans and our national security? Has he fulfilled his Commander in Chief role by decisively going after our Nation’s enemies? You and I know, the answer is yes.”

Madison Cawthorne, a 25-year-old candidate for Congress who was left paralyzed from the waist down after a car accident, will share why he is fighting with President Trump to protect America’s founding ideals.

  • “I choose to fight for the future, to seize the high ground and retake the Shining City on a Hill. While the radical left wants to dismantle, defund, and destroy, Republicans, under President Trump’s leadership, want to rebuild, restore and renew.”
  • “The American idea my ancestors fought for during the Revolutionary War is as exciting and revolutionary today as it was 250 years ago. I say to Americans who love our country – young and old – be a radical for freedom. Be a radical for liberty. Be a radical for our republic.”

Americans will also hear from:

  • Second Lady Karen Pence, who will share stories about the heroes of the U.S. Armed Forces and how they have the unwavering support of President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
  • Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who will highlight President Trump’s tireless commitment to America’s workers.
  • Congressman Lee Zeldin, who will share how President Trump’s coronavirus response delivered critical supplies for frontline workers.

Remarks for Night Two of the Republican National Convention – Part One

President Trump’s 2020 Convention honors the great American story, the American people that have written it, and how President Donald J. Trump has empowered them to succeed. The convention highlights the progress that has been made under President Trump’s leadership, the hardworking Americans that make it possible, and how he will continue to make America great. While Democrats attack our country and sow division, President Trump is implementing an agenda that puts the American people first.

Myron Lizner
Remarks as Prepared:

Ya’at’teeh, I am Myron Lizer, the Vice President of the Navajo Nation. 

I give this address from the majestic rock spires of Shiprock; Tse Bit’ai or Rock with Wings as known by our Dine’ People. It is here that many of our ancestral leaders sought to govern and lead a Nation within a Nation.

They sought to lead their people into the promises of a better way of life for their children’s children. It is also here where they have not been as successful as the rest of America. Our First Nations people are the Host People of the land. We are still here. Our Creator placed us here and knew that for such a time as this, we would have an opportunity for An Appeal to Heaven.

You see our People have never been invited into the American Dream. For years we’ve fought congressional battles with past congressmen and senators that were part of a broken system that ignored us. 

That is, until President Trump took office.

 President Trump delivered the largest Financial funding package ever to Indian Country. The $8B in CARES Act funding to Indian County was a great start in alleviating the devastating effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted on our Indian tribes; the Navajo Nation once led the nation in per capita positive cases because of the health disparities that previous administrations failed to improve.

Whenever we meet with President Trump, he has always made it a priority to repair the relationship with our federal family.

Recently, President Trump signed the first-ever presidential proclamation officially recognizing Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives. 

He established a task force called Operation Lady Justice to address the problem. 

The President also provided 273 million dollars to improve public safety and support victims of crime in the Native American Community. As a result, a cold case office was recently opened on the Gila River Indian Community.

The President has reactivated the White House Council on Native American Affairs to promote economic development and rural prosperity in Indian County.

President Trump also strengthened the Supreme Court by nominating strong conservative judges like Neil Gorsuch, who supports Native American rights.

Thank you for the opportunity to be here tonight. I’m excited to endorse President Trump’s re-election. And Mr. President, we look forward to hosting you very soon to come visit our land we call Dine’tah.  

Ahe’hee’ Thank you very much!

Jon Ponder and Rich Beasley
Remarks as Prepared:

Jon Ponder:
I am so grateful to be here.

Not so long ago, my life was running from the police, fearing the police, and avoiding the police.

I had allowed animosity to grow inside of me, making me believe that they were my enemy. 

But today, I’m filled with hope. I have been given a second chance. My transformation began in a prison cell. I gave my life to Jesus.

First person to help me was actually the FBI agent who arrested me, Rich Beasley. He is now a dear friend.

My hope for America is that all people regardless of race, color, class or background will take advantage of the fact that we live in a nation of second chances. 

My greatest failure led to my greatest success. My hope for America is that we can all look at our failures and use them to work together for a future of successes.

Rich Beasley:
I’m so proud of Jon.

It may be hard to believe that, as a retired FBI agent, one of my best friends is a person I arrested for bank robbery.

When I met Jon 15 years ago, he was angry, scared, and facing years in prison. On the drive to jail, we had a long talk and began to understand each other.

Five years later, when he got out of prison, Jon and I met for lunch. He was a different man. 

He talked about starting a re-entry program for men and women coming out of prison.  He knew he could make a difference in the lives of ex-offenders.

I’m grateful for President Trump’s commitment to criminal justice reform. Six months ago, he was the guest speaker at the HOPE for Prisoners graduation, and he stayed much longer than scheduled to hand out diplomas to the 29 men and women who graduated that day.

The most important man in the free world was shaking hands and pledging his administration’s support to ex-offenders.

I also appreciate President Trump’s support for law enforcement. He knows the overwhelming percentage of law enforcement officers are good, smart people who are doing their jobs well.  And they can change the world, working with people like Jon.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)
Remarks as Prepared:

I’m Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky.

Donald Trump and I met many years ago, before he was running for anything. When I first met him, I recall being struck by how down to earth he was. He seemed like just a normal guy. OK a normal guy with his own plane and helicopter . . .

I was planning a medical mission to Guatemala to perform charity eye surgeries. We needed money to fund the trip. Donald Trump offered to help, and immediately came through for us and for those kids.

Not only did he support my medical mission to Guatemala but he also contributed to another mission trip to Haiti a year later.

We performed hundreds of surgeries in both countries. Nothing is more beautiful to me in this world than removing the bandages from a person’s eyes, and watching them as they see their loved ones again. Donald Trump helped me make that happen.

A few years later, we were opponents, both running for President. We all know how that turned out.

I’m proud of the job Donald Trump has done as President.

I don’t always agree with him. But our occasional policy differences are far outweighed by our significant agreements.

But more important than simple agreement is accomplishment.

President Donald Trump gets things done.

When some in Congress wanted a so-called “revenue neutral” tax plan, Donald Trump and I worked together to make sure it was a true tax cut.

I brought President Trump an idea for better, cheaper health insurance called Association Health Plans. Donald Trump overturned years of red tape and bureaucrats and made it happen.

While others talked about criminal justice reform, President Trump signed the First Step Act, the first real reform in a generation, and one that sought to undo the harm that others, like Joe Biden, have done.

I’m supporting President Trump because he believes as I do that a strong America cannot fight endless wars.

We must not continue to leave our blood and treasure in Middle East quagmires.

I flew with him to Dover Air Force Base to honor two soldiers whose remains were coming home from Afghanistan. I will never forget that night. I can tell you the President not only felt the pain of these families but is committed to ending this war.

President Trump is the first President in a generation to seek to end war rather than start one. He intends to end the war in Afghanistan. He is bringing our men and women home.

Madison once wrote “no nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continuous warfare.”

I’m proud to finally see a President who agrees with that.

Compare President Trump with the disastrous record of Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, who consistently called for more war.

Joe Biden voted for the Iraq War, which President Trump has long called the worst geopolitical mistake of our generation.

I fear Biden will choose war again. He supported war in Serbia, Syria, and Libya. Joe Biden will continue to spill our blood and treasure. President Trump will bring our heroes home.

If you hate war like I hate war…if you want us to quit sending $50 billion to Afghanistan for luxury hotels and natural gas to stations…you need to support President Trump for another term!

So to our soldiers and their families – join me in supporting President Trump.

To those of you who want lower taxes and better, less expensive healthcare, join me in supporting President Trump.

To those of you who want to stand up and fight the socialists poisoning our schools and burning our cities — join me in supporting President Trump.

Let’s Rebuild America together.

Jason Joyce
Remarks as Prepared:

Good evening, my name is Jason Joyce, and I’m an 8th generation lobster fisherman from Swan’s Island, Maine.

I make my living from lobster fishing, oyster farming, and providing eco-tours in the beautiful waters near Acadia National Park, where I have over 200 years of family history.

I have to confess: I didn’t support Trump in 2016. Skeptical that he shared my conservative views, I expected him to flip flop on his campaign promises. 

But he has followed through on his promises, including last week when he brokered a deal to end EU tariffs of 8% on Maine live lobsters and up to 20% on Maine lobster products, which is great news for Maine’s lobstermen.

I live on an island with 370 residents, and lobstering is how we provide for our families. Maine’s lobstermen are true environmentalists. We practice conservation every day. If we didn’t, we’d be putting ourselves out of business. 

Four years ago, the Obama-Biden Administration used the Antiquities Act to order thousands of square miles of ocean off limits to commercial fishermen. They did it to cater to environmental activists.  Although Maine’s lobstermen don’t fish there, Obama’s executive order offended us greatly. It circumvented the fisheries counsels’ input. 

President Trump reversed that decision, reinstating the rules that allow stakeholder input, and he supports a process that seeks and respects fishermen’s views.

As long as Trump is president, fishing families like mine will have a voice. But if Biden wins, he’ll be controlled by the environmental extremists who want to circumvent longstanding rules and impose radical changes that hurt our coastal communities. 

I strongly support President Trump’s re-election. When he sees something isn’t right, he’s fearless in fixing it.  He listens to working people. He nominates judges who respect the Constitution and the right to life. He keeps his word, like eliminating the European tariffs, and moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. 

I hope you will join me – this time—in voting for President Trump. Thank you.

Cris Peterson
Remarks as Prepared:

Good evening. My name is Cris Peterson.  My husband Gary, our family and I milk a thousand cows on a dairy farm in Grantsburg Wisconsin, a small middle American town. Truth be told, until I married my cute farmer from Grantsburg, I was a city slicker from Minneapolis, which is about 70 miles south of us.

Donald Trump became President in the middle of the Great Depression for Wisconsin dairy farmers.  In 2016, prices were horrible and long-time generational farms across the Nation were going out of business. In 2017, our 120-year-old barn, which served as our milking center, caught fire and burned to the ground.  Our cows were spared, but because they needed to be milked 3 times a day, farmers, friends and complete strangers from all over northern Wisconsin helped haul them to other farms where they stayed until we could rebuild.

By the end of 2018, we had a new state-of-the-art robotic milking facility that allows our cows to milk themselves three times a day. At about the same time, President Trump’s economic boom began helping dairy farmers across the Nation.

As a businessman, President Trump understands that farming is a complicated, capital-intensive and risky business. More than any president, he has acknowledged the importance of farmers and agriculture. That support and focus on negotiating new trade deals gave us the confidence to rebuild our barn and dairy operation.

Business was booming again. And business boomed right until the Covid19 shutdown in March.  Many people probably don’t realize that our country is one of few in the world that produces nearly all of its own food. Fewer still understand how close our food production and distribution system came to collapsing this past Spring.

But President Trump understood and again took steps to provide the supports we needed. President Trump took the necessary action knowing that agriculture is our backbone and strength, critical to our national security. 

Our entire economy, and dairy farming, are once again roaring back. One person deserves the credit and our vote, President Donald J. Trump. 

Larry Kudlow
Remarks as Prepared:

Hello, America.

My name is Larry Kudlow. You’ve been seeing me on your TV screen for years. You’ve relied on me to tell you the truth — in good times and in bad. We’ve ridden bull markets together, and endured the bears. And through it all, you always knew you could count on me to do one thing, and that’s to shoot straight with you.

Tonight, I want to talk to you about where we are. And I want to talk to you about where we’re going.

It’s been a tough few months for all of us. We were enjoying the greatest economy our country had ever seen. Your wages were up. Your taxes were down. Your retirement plans were through the roof. That’s what our president had delivered. Prosperity.

Then the pandemic hit. It rocked us all back on our heels. But we’re Americans. We’re fighters. And so is our president. He went straight to work to not only protect our safety and our health — but to preserve our jobs and our livelihoods.

He sent direct cash payments to Americans in need, and protected them from eviction.

He delivered historic Paycheck Protection to small businesses so they could keep our workers employed.

He delivered a payroll tax deferral that essentially gave a pay raise to 140 million working Americans.

He delivered student loan deferral.

And he delivered unemployment relief to strengthen our safety net.

Even when the Democrats refused to come to the table — President Trump delivered.

There is no replacing the economic power of the American worker — of free people being productive. But the President’s decisive actions preserved millions of jobs, helped small businesses keep their doors open, and allowed families to make ends meet.

We still have a lot of hardship, and we have a lot of heartbreak in many areas. But we’ve hit a turning point. And now the recovery has begun.

The S&P 500 is up 50 percent from its low in March. That means middle-class families are feeling more secure about the future. We’re already making our way toward single-digit unemployment.

There’s a big change in attitude happening. The American Spirit is picking up.

Car sales are booming. Retail spending is booming. And workers are going to have to produce new inventory to restock those shelves. That means get ready for a big third and fourth quarter, folks. The jobs numbers just keep coming out better than anyone expected.

All signs point to a self-sustaining recovery.

And there’s nobody better to lead us back to the top than President Trump. He did it once. You don’t have to guess whether he can pull it off. You’ve seen it. And he’ll do it again. It’s called winning.

But what do Joe Biden and the Democrats want to do?

Biden is backing over $3 trillion in tax hikes. You’re coming out of a pandemic, and he wants to raise taxes? That’s crazy.

They want to ramp up the job-killing regulations. They want to decimate the American energy renaissance that we’ve experienced these last four years. And it will crater our economy.

You see, it’s not the personalities that concern me, it’s the policies. Joe Biden has pledged to transform America into a government-run, socialized economy, the likes of which has never succeeded in human history.

The contrast could not be more clear.

President Trump: tax cuts, deregulation, fair trade, American energy revival — a splendid, fast-growing economy.

Why would you want to unwind that? Why would you want to overturn that? Why would you want to transform that? I don’t want to transform it, I want to continue with a second round of economic rebuilding.

My fellow Americans, we will persevere. But we’ve got to decide what kind of country we want to live in.

In the free economy that President Trump believes in, we demand two things: Equal opportunity, and equal freedom for ALL Americans. We demand it, and we ensure it.

We believe that given the chance, you will succeed. And look, it’s already worked. The Trump economy produced the lowest unemployment in history. And lower-and-middle-income families performed the best. Their wage increases were the highest of all.

As Americans, we want opportunities and we want incentives. Give us a chance to succeed, and reward us for hard work, and we can’t be beat.

President Trump will always bet on the American worker. And that’s why the American worker — and the American voter — should always bet on him.

John Peterson
Remarks as Prepared:

I am John Peterson, owner of a second-generation metal fabrication business called Schuette Metals. We’ve been stamping our products and services “Made in the USA” since 1957. 

My brothers and I purchased the business from my uncles almost 38 years ago.  What was a 12-person shop has grown into a company employing 165 people today. 

Like most companies that are successful over the long run, we had to reinvent ourselves as the market changed. Six years ago, we invested heavily in our business just as the great recession appeared. Barack Obama and Joe Biden — two career politicians who know nothing about business — couldn’t get the government out of our way so we could grow and create jobs. And it put our business in a tailspin.

Sadly, we were forced to make tough decisions which included cutting staff … a torturous experience when your employees are like family. The fact was, the Obama/Biden era banking regulations left us no choice. It tied our lender’s hands, and deprived us of the lifeblood of any business: capital.

We scrapped and clawed and hung on with everything we had for two years. And then everything changed. Because Donald Trump was elected president. He knew what it was like to build a company and to create jobs for American workers. And he got right to work.

One of the first things he did was cut the red tape and put an end to draconian banking regulations. He also cut taxes on small businesses, allowing us to be more competitive both domestically and internationally. In fact, we increased revenues by 25 percent, for two years in a row.

By getting rid of the job-killing NAFTA and negotiating the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, President Trump ensured a more competitive playing field for American companies like ours. Because he knows when the game isn’t rigged against us, nobody can beat the American Worker and the American Entrepreneur. Even with all the challenges presented by the coronavirus, President Trump is re-building, and our economy is roaring back again.

But when I hear that Joe Biden is ready to raise taxes, crush us with regulations and weaken our international trade position, I shudder. We simply cannot do that again. Business can’t endure a Biden-induced recession. Some will struggle, some will not survive. And that means the working men and women of America will get crushed yet again.

This is not the time to hand our government over to a washed-up career politician who will be nothing but a puppet of the radical Left that has hijacked the Democrat party. 

As a life-long resident of Wisconsin, I’m a fan of Wisconsin Badger football. Many might not realize that the Wisconsin Badgers and the President share three common qualities. They are smart, tough and dependable. And as a businessman, I can tell you those are qualities we need in our country’s leader and that is why we need to re-elect President Donald J. Trump.  Thank you.

Cissie Graham Lynch
Remarks as Prepared:

Good evening, I’m Cissie Graham Lynch.

I’m honored to speak to you tonight about something that is so important to all of us: our faith.

As Americans, we know that the first line of the First Amendment protects our freedom of religion. But what we often forget the actual words are “free exercise” of religion.

That means living out our faith in our daily lives — in our schools, at our jobs, and yes, even in the public square.

Our Founders did not envision a quiet, hidden faith. They fought to ensure that voices of faith were always welcomed, not silenced. Not bullied.

But during the Obama-Biden Administration, these freedoms were under attack.

Democrats tried to make faith organizations pay for abortion inducing drugs.

Democrats tried to force adoption agencies to violate their deeply held beliefs.

Democrats pressured schools to allow boys to compete in girls’ sports and use girls’ locker rooms.

Those are the facts.

But then We the People elected Donald Trump, people of faith suddenly had a fierce advocate in the White House.

He appointed judges who respect the First Amendment.

He supported religious beliefs in court.

He ensured religious ministries would not be forced to violate their beliefs.

He withdrew the policies that placed our little girls at risk.

On the world stage, President Trump became the first president to talk about the importance of religious freedom at the United Nations, giving hope to people of faith around the world.

In America, we have not yet experienced physical persecution, even though the Left has tried to silence us.

Even during the pandemic, we saw how quickly life could change. Some Democrat leaders banned church services while marijuana shops and abortion clinics were declared “essential.”

But, you know what is truly essential? Our right to worship freely and live our faith in every aspect of life.

The Biden-Harris vision for America leaves no room for people of faith.

Whether you’re a baker, a florist, or a football coach, they will force the choice between being obedient to God, or to Caesar.

Because the radical Left’s god is government power.

So in the words of my grandfather, Billy Graham: “Let us stand for political freedom, moral freedom, religious freedom and the rights of all Americans … and let’s never give in to those who would attempt to take it from us.”

Tonight, I’m proudly standing in that public square.

I hope and pray you will join me in voting to re-elect President Trump.

Robert Vlaisavljevich
Remarks as Prepared:

I am Bob Vlaisaljevich and I am the Mayor of Eveleth, a small town in the heart of the Iron Range.  My father and grandfather earned their livings mining the raw materials that made the steel that built America.

This election is make or break for workers who are carrying on the legacy of men like them.  I see it firsthand in Northern Minnesota, where we have relied on mining to provide for our families for over a century.

Since our economy is vulnerable to economic trends and to foreign trade, we have long depended on having a strong voice in Washington to protect our interests. The leaders of the Democratic Party filled that void for many years because we actually believed they were concerned about our welfare. 

Not anymore.

The radical environmental movement has dragged the Democratic Party so far to the Left that they can no longer claim to be our advocates — they are now clearly our adversaries.

This is particularly hard for me to say . . . because I am a life-long Democrat.

But for far too long, members of both parties allowed our country to be ripped off and taken advantage of, especially by China.

They — and other supposed trade partners — dumped steel into our markets and slapped tariffs on us, tipping the scales in their favor.  And what did our leaders do?  Nothing. Then to make matters worse, the Obama-Biden administration crushed us with environmental regulations.

The human and economic cost has been devastating. 

Even in our tiny town, we lost thousands of jobs . . . a 70% drop from 14,000 to 4,000.

We lost a generation of young people who had to move out of the area to find a livelihood.

And worst of all, we lost hope. And without that, many wondered what was the point of continuing on.

Then something unexpected happened. A brash, no-nonsense New Yorker named Donald Trump burst onto the scene.  But he didn’t talk like a Manhattan billionaire, even though that’s what he was.  He talked like one of us.  He knew what we were up against.  And he promised to stand up to China and the rest of the world on behalf of the American worker.

Four years later, I am happy to say that after decades of despair, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and we have one man to thank: President Donald Trump.

He has made good on all of his campaign promises, and then some.  He has fought to give us a fair chance to compete.  He has become the “champion of working Americans,” a blue-collar billionaire. 

He lowered our high taxes.  He rolled back the job-killing regulations. He got rid of the bad trade deals and replaced them with deals that put our interests first.

The Trump Administration’s policies mean that with the discovery of new mineral deposits, the use of innovative mining processes, and the growth of our domestic and global markets, we have the chance to grow and diversify our economy. What was once a pipe dream is now within our grasp.

But the fight is not over.  Joe Biden has allowed radicals like AOC to craft his environmental policies. The Green New Deal would put entire swaths of our country out of a job. Because it’s not about people. It’s about control.  Biden’s too weak to ever stand up to them. Donald Trump will.

Because he knows that these new mining projects can co-exist with our environment. We can have the best of both worlds: good paying jobs that support families and access to our world-class wilderness.

This formula is working for the Iron Range, and it is working for Americans all across the country who are building things, mining things, and growing things. 

President Trump is fighting for all of us.  He delivered the best economy in our history and he will do it again. 

This election is make or break for the Iron Range. Our economic future and survival are at stake. 

We know we can count on President Trump to fight for us–and win. Because that’s what he’s always done. And with our help, he’ll do it again on November 3rd.

God Bless America!

Abby Johnson
Remarks as Prepared:

My name is Abby Johnson. I spent eight years working for Planned Parenthood.

Today, I’m a prolife activist.

When I was in college, Planned Parenthood approached me at a volunteer fair. They talked about helping women in crisis and their commitment to keep abortion “safe, legal and rare.”

I was convinced to volunteer and later offered a full-time job as a Medical Assistant before my promotion to Director of the clinic.

I truly believed I was helping women. But things changed in 2009.

In April, I was awarded Planned Parenthood’s Employee of the Year award and invited to their annual gala where they present the Margaret Sanger Award, named for their founder.

Margaret Sanger was a racist who believed in eugenics; Her goal when founding Planned Parenthood was to eradicate minorities.

Today, almost 80% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are strategically placed in minority neighborhoods; And every year Planned Parenthood celebrates its racist roots by presenting the Margaret Sanger award.

Later, in August, my supervisor assigned me a new quota to meet. I was expected to sell double the abortions performed the previous year.

When I pushed back, underscoring Planned Parenthood’s public-facing goal of decreasing abortions, I was reprimanded, and told, “Abortion is how we make our money.”

But the tipping point came a month later, when a physician asked me to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion.

Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen – an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction.

And I’ll never forget what the doctor said next – “Beam me up, Scotty.”

The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction.

On October sixth, I left the clinic, looking back only to remember why I now advocate so passionately for life.

I founded and currently run And Then There Were None, an organization that’s helped nearly 600 abortion workers transition out of the industry.

For most people who consider themselves pro-life, abortion is abstract. They can’t conceive of the barbarity.

They don’t know about the Products of Conception room in abortion clinics, where infant corpses are pieced back together to ensure nothing remains in the mothers; Or that we joked and called it the “Pieces of Children” room.

For me, abortion’s real. I know what it sounds like; what it smells like. I’ve been the perpetrator…to these babies…to these women.

I support President Trump because he’s done more for the unborn than any other President.

During his first month in office, he banned federal funds for global health groups that promote abortion. That same year, he overturned an Obama-Biden rule that allowed government subsidy of abortion.

He appointed a record number of pro-life judges, including two Supreme Court Justices. And importantly, he announced a new rule protecting the rights of healthcare workers objecting to abortion, many of whom I work with every day.

Life is a core tenet of who we are as Americans.

This election is a choice between two radical, anti-life activists, and the most pro-life President we’ve ever had. That’s something that should compel you to action.

Go door-to-door; make calls; talk to neighbors and friends. And VOTE November third!

Take action that re-elects our President.

And do it with our most vulnerable Americans in mind – the ones who haven’t been born yet.

Mary Ann Mendoza
Remarks as Prepared:

My heart is forever broken . . . because our immigration system is broken.

I’m Mary Ann Mendoza. On May 12, 2014, my son, Sargent Brandon Mendoza of the Mesa Arizona Police Department was killed in a head on collision.

He was headed home from his shift, keeping our community safe.

The driver who killed my son was drunk—three times the legal limit—high on meth, and driving more than one hundred miles per hour . . . going the wrong way for more than 35 miles on Phoenix freeways.

The driver who killed my son wasn’t even supposed to be in our country, because he was an illegal alien with a criminal record.

Brandon was a shining light in my life and our community. He truly made a difference in Mesa.  As a modern day beat cop, he was well-known and well-liked. The neighborhood he patrolled and worked hard to rid of the illegal drug dealers, appreciated him making that neighborhood a safe-haven for families again. 

In fact, his nickname was “Hollywood,” because he truly shines like a star. The kids in the neighborhood loved him. Parents trusted him. Serving and protecting his community was his passion. It was his life’s goal since he was thirteen. 

Brandon’s life represented the best of America. Sadly, his death represents some of the worst.

He didn’t have to die. Not like this. Not now. If our borders had been secure and if our justice system worked like it should have, Brandon would still be walking his beat. Checking up on the kids. Waving to their parents. Keeping everyone safe.

Tragically, there are many others who have been lost needlessly: Brandon Michael, Carlos Wolff, Tierra Stansberry, Sander Cohen, Hailey King, Sarah Root, Ruben Morfin.

You can find out more about their stories, and how to preserve their legacies at angel families dot org.

President Donald Trump is the first political leader we’ve ever seen take on the radical Left to finally secure our border and to end illegal immigration since day one. I’ve met him many times and I know what’s in his heart . . . I know what he hopes and dreams for this country.

Since he took office: more than 280 miles of southern border wall have been built, with more than 500 miles expected by early next year.

There has been a 78 percent decline in illegal border crossings since May of last year.

And President Trump put an end to Barack Obama’s – and, notably, Joe Biden’s – dangerous catch-and-release program . . . a program that allowed Brandon’s killer to avoid deportation for his previous crimes and up his game to murder.

President Trump knows what it takes to make America great again.

He knows the formula for America’s greatness is simple. It’s everything Brandon represented:

Ensure law and order . . . and protect the vulnerable,

Give generously to your community,

Love your family, deeply,

And practice your faith.

Brandon’s opportunity to contribute to America’s greatness during his lifetime was cut short. But his spirit is alive, and his legacy will always be embedded in the fabric of America. I know it will always be on President Trump’s mind and in his heart.  He will never forget Brandon, and he will never stop fighting for us.

His record is clear and strong.

Appointing conservative judges who will uphold our laws and provide justice.

Safer communities without sanctuary policies that give refuge to illegal criminals.

Securing our borders so good-paying jobs – that provide financial security for families – go to Americans . . . not illegal aliens.

Supporting our Law Enforcement who help keep our neighborhoods safe. 

This is the foundation for a bright future.  A bright future for all of us . . . with greater opportunity, tremendous prosperity, and more peace.

A brighter future that President Trump will continue fighting for when we re-elect him on November third.

Thank you.

God Bless you.

God Bless our Law enforcement officers.

God Bless our President.

And God Bless America.

Nicholas Sandmann
Remarks as Prepared:

Good evening everyone. My name is Nick Sandmann. I’m the teenager who was defamed by the media after an encounter with a group of protestors on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial last year.

Before I begin, I’d like to thank President Trump for the opportunity to share some of my story and why it matters so much to this November’s election.

In January 2019, I attended the March for Life in Washington D.C. where I demonstrated in defense of the unborn. Later that day, I bought a “Make America Great Again” hat because our President, Donald Trump, has distinguished himself as the most pro-life Presidents in the history of our country and I wanted to express my support for him too. Looking back now, how could I possibly have imagined that the simple act of putting on that red hat would unleash the hate from the left and make myself the target of network and cable news networks, nationwide?

Being from Kentucky, the birth place of Abraham Lincoln, my classmates and I visited the Lincoln Memorial. I found myself face-to-face with Nathan Phillips and other professional protestors looking to turn me into the latest poster child showing why Trump is bad. While the media portrayed me as the aggressor with a “relentless smirk” on my face, in reality the video confirms I was standing with my hands behind my back and an awkward smile on my face that hid two thoughts. One, don’t do anything that might further agitate the man banging a drum in my face and two, trying to follow a family friend’s advice never to do anything to embarrass your family, your school, or your community.       

Before I knew what was happening, it was over. One of Mr. Phillips fellow agitators yelled out “We got him!”, “It’s all right here on video” and We won Grandpa”. What I thought was a strange encounter, quickly developed into a major news story complete with video footage.

My life changed forever in that one moment. The full war machine of the mainstream media revved up into attack mode. They did so without ever researching the full video of the incident; without ever investigating Mr. Philips’ motives; or without ever asking me for my side of the story. And do you know why? Because the truth wasn’t important. Advancing their anti-Christian, anti-Conservative, anti-Donald Trump narrative was all that mattered.  And if advancing their narrative ruined the reputation and future of a teenager from Covington, Kentucky…so be it. That will teach him not to wear a MAGA hat! 

I learned that what was happening to me had a name.  It was called being cancelled. As in annulled. As in revoked. As in made void.    

Cancelled is what’s happening to people around this country who refuse to be silenced by the far left.  Many are being fired, humiliated or even threatened. Often, the media is a willing participant.  

But I wouldn’t be cancelled.  I fought back hard to expose the media for what they did to me and won a personal victory.  While much more must be done, I look forward to the day that the media returns to providing balanced, responsible and accountable news coverage.

I know President Trump hopes for that too. I’m proud to say that throughout my media nightmare I have had President Trump’s unwavering support. And I know you’ll agree with me when I say no one in this county has been a victim of unfair media coverage more than President Donald Trump.   

In November, I believe this country must unite around a President who calls the media out and refuses to allow them to create a narrative instead of reporting the facts. 

I believe we must join with a President who will challenge the media to return to objective journalism.

And together, I believe we must all embrace our 1st Amendment rights and not hide in fear of the media, or from the tech companies or the outrage mob either. 

This is worth fighting for. This is worth voting for. This is what President Donald Trump stands for.

Thank you all for listening to me tonight. And one more thing… let’s Make America Great Again!

Tiffany Trump
Remarks as Prepared:

Good evening I’m Tiffany Trump,

Since speaking at the Republican Convention 4 years ago, so much has changed for the world, for our country, and for my family.

Like so many students across the world, I graduated from law school during the pandemic. Our generation is unified in facing the future in uncertain times — and many of us are considering what kind of country we want to live in.

As a recent graduate, I can relate to so many of you who might be looking for a job. My father built a thriving economy once, and believe me, he will do it again.

This election I urge each and every one of you to transcend political boundaries. This is a fight for freedom versus oppression, for opportunity versus stagnation, a fight to keep America true to America.

I urge you to make your judgement based on results and not rhetoric.

If you believe in criminal justice reform, there is only one president that passed the First Step Act. Giving people a second chance, a chance at life once again.

And if you believe in expanding quality and affordable healthcare, only President Trump, my father, signed Right to Try into law, the Favored Nations clause, and other actions to lower drug prices and keep Americans from getting ripped off.

People must recognize that our thoughts, opinions, and even the choice of who we vote for are being manipulated and invisibly coerced by the media and tech giants.

If you tune into the media, you get one biased opinion or another. And if what you share does not fit into the narrative they seek to promote, then it is either ignored or deemed a “lie,” regardless of the truth. This manipulation of what information we receive impedes our freedoms.

Rather than allowing Americans the right to form our own beliefs, this misinformation system keeps people mentally enslaved to the ideas they deem correct. This has fostered unnecessary fear and divisiveness amongst us.

Why are so many in the media, in technology, even in our own government, so invested in promoting a biased and fabricated view?

Ask yourselves why are we prevented from seeing certain information? Why is one viewpoint promoted while others are hidden?

The answer is control — and because division and controversy breeds profit.

But what are the consequences when only one side of the story gets out or when only one viewpoint is acceptable?

For our education system it meant sacrificing civil debate, by creating an atmosphere where students with contrary opinions are too afraid to speak. Many students find themselves suppressing their beliefs to fit into the acceptable groupthink.

In short, our nation suffers by inhibiting our diversity of thought and inclusion of ideas. Working together, outside of our political comfort zones, will accomplish so much more.

Some cynical politicians don’t seem to believe in the miracle of America. I do.  As Maximo Alvarez so eloquently put it on this stage last night, if freedom is lost in this country, “there is nowhere else to go.” Having hope is not weakness…Believing in Miracles is a gift from God.

Tonight, I want to tell you the uncensored truth of what we believe in:

We believe in equality of opportunity.

We believe in freedom of thought and expression. Think what you want. Seek out the truth. Learn from those with different opinions. Then freely, make your voice heard to the world.

We believe in school choice, because a child’s zip code in America should not determine their future.

We believe in freedom of religion for all faiths.

And we believe in the American spirit. A country founded on ideas, not identity. A country where our differences are embraced. And the only country where the word “dream” has been attached to it. Because in America, your life is yours to chart.

So, if you are hearing these things and thinking to yourself, THAT is the kind of country I want to live in. Well, whether you realized it or not, you’re a Trump supporter.

I implore you to see beyond the façade — the masks — that so many other politicians employ.

My father is the only person to challenge the establishment, the entrenched bureaucracy, big pharma, and media monopolies to ensure that American’s constitutional freedoms are upheld, and that justice and truth prevail.

My father does not run away from challenges — even in the face of outright hatred — because fighting for America is something he will sacrifice anything for. He dreams big dreams for our country — and he is relentless at achieving them.

You see, Make America Great Again is not a slogan for my father, it is what drives him to keep his promise of doing what is right for American citizens.

The energy for change and opportunity is with us.

God has blessed us with an unstoppable spirit. His Spirit…The American Spirit. My dad has proven to be driven by that spirit! He has demonstrated his faith by his uncompromising heart and actions! My dad has made me believe that America can truly be great again!

If you care about living your life without restraints, about rebelling against those who would suppress your voice, and building YOUR American Dream. Then the choice in this election is clear.

A vote for my father, Donald J. Trump, is a vote to uphold our American ideals. Be true to yourself. And stay true to the Dream of America.

Thank you and God bless you all.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds
Remarks as Prepared:

I’m Kim Reynolds, governor of the great state of Iowa.

I love this state and am so proud to serve its people. Iowa truly is a land of opportunity.

It’s the birthplace of the computer; it’s a landmark of the financial-services industry. And as so many of you already know, it’s filled with farmland that feeds and fuels the world.

It’s also home to people who care for one another, who work hard, who love this Country and are truly grateful for the freedoms it provides.

As I like to say, Iowa is one big, small town. Neighbor helping neighbor is in our DNA. From the sick farmer who can’t harvest his crops to the single mom who loses her job and is struggling to get back on her feet, the town — the community — helps them get through it.

But what happens when a storm rips through almost the entire state? When it’s not one farmer who lost his crop but hundreds. When it’s not one neighbor who is without food, but thousands.

That happened, just two weeks ago. A storm called a derecho, with hurricane-force winds of up to 140 miles per hour, wiped out millions of acres of crops, left thousands without power.

Destroyed homes. Wrecked lives, and left devastation in its wake. It was the worst storm in our state’s history.

And Iowans did what you expect Iowans to do. They helped each other. They took care of each other. And they still are.

But someone else also had our back: Our president.

When the winds had finished raging and the cleanup had only begun, he showed up. You might not know, because the national media didn’t report it. But the Trump administration was here. In full force.

The day after the storm, the president called to assure me that we had the full backing of the federal government.

Later that week, Vice President Pence came to Iowa to again assure us that the President and his administration were behind us.

With the help of the Trump Administration, we quickly received a disaster declaration that will help Iowans get back on their feet. The President cut through the bureaucracy to do what needed to be done, and to do it quickly. 

But that’s not the first time President Trump showed Iowans that we can rely on him.

In 2019, when 100-year floods breached nearly all levees and devastated communities large and small along the Missouri River in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri, the President approved our request for aid in record time — two days. Well this year, he did it in less than 24 hours.

Whether it’s providing needed relief to farmers who were the target of  China’s unfair trade practices, hammering out new free — and fair — trade deals, or fighting for workers and small businesses who were hit hard by COVID-19, we have a President and an Administration who gets things done.

And because of President Trump and his leadership, our county is able to show resolve through adversity, and see opportunity grow and thrive.

This is an administration of action and outcomes. They are delivering every day on their promise to make America great again. And that’s exactly why we need to re-elect President Trump in November.

Thank you. And may God bless the United States of America.

America, Land of Opportunity: RNC Day Two Preview

The second night of the Republican National Convention honors the opportunities all Americans now have thanks to President Trump’s policies and his leadership empowering all Americans to achieve their full potential. Accordingly, Tuesday night’s theme is “Land of Opportunity.” President Trump has made expanding opportunity a cornerstone of his agenda, and tonight’s convention will showcase the many ways Americans have been able to prosper because of it.

Tonight’s speakers, Americans from all walks of life, will share how they are better off than they were before thanks to President Trump’s policies. Americans will also hear from America’s First Lady at the conclusion of the evening.

Ryan Holets, a police officer from New Mexico, will share his heartwarming story of adopting the child of a drug addict who became his friend and highlight how President Trump has tackled the opioid crisis.

  • “I hold a special place in my heart for those facing opioid addiction. That’s why I’m enormously grateful to the President for his leadership in fighting this deadly enemy. Through his efforts, we are turning the tide on the crisis of addiction.”
  • “These are significant improvements that have a meaningful impact. We are fortunate, America, to have a President who cares deeply for the downtrodden, who works tirelessly to find solutions. A President who doesn’t just talk about problems – but stops and helps.”

Jason Joyce, an eighth generation lobster fisherman from Maine who did not support the President in 2016, will share how President Trump kept his promises to Maine’s fishermen and businesses and why he is supporting him in 2020. 

  • “I have to confess: I didn’t support Trump in 2016. Skeptical that he shared my conservative views, I expected him to flip flop on his campaign promises. But he has followed through on his promises…”
  • “As long as Trump is president, fishing families like mine will have a voice…I strongly support President Trump’s re-election. When he sees something isn’t right, he’s fearless in fixing it. He listens to working people.”

Myron Lizer, the Vice President of the Navajo Nation, will share how President Trump has “made it a priority to repair the relationship” between the Navajo and the federal government and has empowered the Navajo people to finally join the American Dream.

  • “For years we’ve fought congressional battles with past congressmen and senators that were part of a broken system that ignored us. That is, until President Trump took office…Whenever we meet with President Trump, he has always made it a priority to repair the relationship with our federal family.”
  • “President Trump also strengthened the Supreme Court by nominating strong conservative judges like Neil Gorsuch, who supports Native American rights.”

Cris Peterson, a dairy farmer from Wisconsin, will highlight President Trump’s commitment to farmers and share how the President’s “focus on negotiating new trade deals” ended unfair trade practices and helped dairy farming come “roaring back.”

  • “More than any president, [President Trump] has acknowledged the importance of farmers and agriculture. That support and focus on negotiating new trade deals gave us the confidence to rebuild our barn and dairy operation.”
  • “Our entire economy, and dairy farming, are once again roaring back. One person deserves the credit and our vote, President Donald J. Trump.”

Nicholas Sandmann is a teenager who became the victim of an unfair left-wing media defamation campaign. Tonight, he will share his encounter with cancel culture and highlight President Trump’s refusal to back down in the face of the liberal media.

  • “My life changed forever in that one moment. The full war machine of the mainstream media revved up into attack mode. They did so without ever researching the full video of the incident; without ever investigating Mr. Philips’ motives; or without ever asking me for my side of the story. And do you know why? Because the truth wasn’t important.”
  • “In November, I believe this country must unite around a President who calls the media out and refuses to allow them to create a narrative instead of reporting the facts. I believe we must join with a President who will challenge the media to return to objective journalism.”

Abby Johnson is a former clinic director for Planned Parenthood who walked away from her job after witnessing the abortion of a 13-week old fetus. Tonight, she will share the horrifying truth about the abortion industry, highlight President Trump’s unwavering support for life, and urge Americans to support the pro-life cause.

  • “For most people who consider themselves pro-life, abortion is abstract. They can’t conceive of the barbarity…for me, abortion’s real.”
  • “Life is a core tenet of who we are as Americans. This election is a choice between two radical, anti-life activists, and the most pro-life President we’ve ever had. That’s something that should compel you to action.”

Bob Vlaisavljevich, a life-long Democrat and the Mayor of Eveleth, a small town in the Minnesota Iron Range, will share how President Trump’s America First policies have benefited blue-collar workers and helped the Iron Range come “roaring back to life.”

  • “Four years later, I am happy to say that after decades of despair, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and we have one man to thank: President Donald Trump. He has made good on all of his campaign promises, and then some. He has fought to give us a fair chance to compete.” 
  • “This formula is working for the Iron Range, and it is working for Americans all across the country who are building things, mining things, and growing things. President Trump is fighting for all of us. He delivered the best economy in our history and he will do it again.”

John Peterson, who owns a second-generation metal fabrication business, will share how President Trump’s leadership has leveled the playing field for manufacturers and put American workers first.

  • “And then everything changed. Because Donald Trump was elected president. He knew what it was like to build a company and to create jobs for American workers. And he got right to work.”
  • “By getting rid of the job-killing NAFTA and negotiating the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, President Trump ensured a more competitive playing field for American companies like ours. Because he knows when the game isn’t rigged against us, nobody can beat the American Worker and the American Entrepreneur.”

Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son was killed by a drunk driver illegal immigrant with a criminal record, will share her heart-breaking story and how President Trump is fighting every day to secure the border and honor her son’s legacy.

  • “President Donald Trump is the FIRST political leader we’ve ever seen take on the radical Left to finally secure our border and to end illegal immigration since day one. I’ve met him many times and I know what’s in his heart…I know what he hopes and dreams for this country.”
  • “President Trump knows what it takes to make America great again. He knows the formula for America’s greatness is simple. It’s everything Brandon represented: Ensure law and order and protect the vulnerable, give generously to your community, love your family, deeply, and practice your faith.”
     

Americans will also hear from:

  • Former FBI agent Richard Beasley and Jon Ponder, who was arrested by Beasley for robbing a bank and has since founded an organization that helps former prisoners reintegrate into society.
  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who will deliver his address from Jerusalem and highlight how President Trump has “led bold initiatives in nearly every corner of the world” to secure peace and “keep us safe and our freedoms intact.”

  • Attorney General Daniel Cameron, the first Black Attorney General from the state of Kentucky, who will call out the “anarchists mindlessly tear[ing] up American cities while attacking police officers” and share how President Trump is upholding of the values of the Party of Lincoln.
  • Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, who will share how President Trump took decisive action to help Iowa’s communities recover from the recent storms and showed up in “full force” to assist in relief efforts.
