President Donald Trump capped the 2020 Republican National Convention on Thursday by accepting his party’s presidential nomination for the second time.
Trump vouched for his reelection in a more than 70-minute speech on the White House South Lawn, with the president’s official residence in the background. Mixing official government and political business, he spoke to a crowd sitting shoulder to shoulder during a pandemic, flanked by “Trump Pence” campaign signs.
In his remarks, the president outlined what he considers the triumphs of his first term in office, including trade deals and an economy that was strong before coronavirus-fueled shutdowns. Trump made lofty promises, assuring rapid job growth and a reined-in coronavirus outbreak.
He also took aim at Biden, claiming his election would lead to an economic collapse and violence in American cities.
