Republican National Convention

August 24-27, 2020

  • Tim Scott: South Carolina senator 

Make no mistake: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want a cultural revolution. A fundamentally different America. If we let them…they will turn our country into a socialist utopia…and history has taught us that path only leads to pain and misery, especially for hard-working people hoping to rise.” 

  • Melania Trump: First Lady 

“Growing up as a young child in Slovenia, which was under communist rule at the time, I always heard about an amazing place called America — a land that stood for freedom and opportunity. As I grew older it became my goal to move to the United States and follow my dream of working in the fashion industry. …I understand what a privilege it is to live here and to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that we have.”

  • Mike Pompeo: Secretary of State 

“In the Middle East, when Iran threatened, the President approved a strike that killed the Iranian terrorist Kassam Suleimani. …Today because of the President’s determination and leadership, the ISIS caliphate is wiped out. … In North Korea, the President lowered the temperature, and against all odds got the North Korean leadership to the table. ” 

  • Eric Trump: President Trump’s son 

“The economy soared to new heights….  Wages went through the roof.  Unemployment reached historic lows especially for Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, women. Trade deals were ripped up and renegotiated. … Joe Biden is a politician who has been in Washington for 47 years. … He does not know the slightest thing about the American worker or the American business.”

  • Mitch McConnell: House Minority Leader  

“They want to defund the police and take away your Second Amendment rights.  They want free health care for illegal immigrants, yet they offer no protection at all for unborn Americans.”

  • Mike Pence: Vice President 

“[President Trump] sees America for what it is: a nation that has done more good in this world than any other.  A nation that deserves far more gratitude than grievance. … President Trump and I will always support the right of Americans to peaceful protest. But rioting and looting is not peaceful protest. Tearing down statues is not free speech. … And under President Trump, we will always stand with those who stand on the thin blue line, and we’re not going to defund the police not now, not ever.”

  • Donald Trump: President of the United States

“At the Democrat National Convention, Joe Biden and his party repeatedly assailed America as a land of racial, economic, and social injustice. So tonight, I ask you a very simple question: How can the Democrat Party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?  In the left’s backward view, they do not see America as the most free, just, and exceptional nation on earth. Instead, they see a wicked nation that must be punished for its sins. Our opponents say that redemption for YOU can only come from giving power to THEM. This is a tired anthem spoken by every repressive movement throughout history. But in this country, we don’t look to career politicians for salvation. In America, we don’t turn to government to restore our souls – we put our faith in Almighty God.”
