The Republican Convention got off to a rousing start. Unlike the Democrat Convention, which was filled with negativity and made up attacks on Trump since they had nothing substantial to offer, the Republican Convention was very positive and upbeat and more motivational and inspirational consisting of an A-list of politicians and people from all walks of life who benefited from Trump’s policies. There was an occasional attack on Joe Biden mostly stating his failures to really produce anything worthwhile in his 47 years in Congress, but it wasn’t a constant barrage like the Dems did with Trump.
There was a film of Trump meeting with a small group representing the 50 hostages Trump freed from various other countries like Turkey and Syria through sheer negotiations without paying a cent, unlike Obama who paid 1.7 billion to Iran to free the hostages along with the 150 billion he gave them.
There was a young woman Natalie Harp who was dying of rare bone cancer and doctors were about to give up hope and said she would be suffering if she lived. She heard about a drug that was not yet approved, but thanks to Trump’s right to try policy she was able to get it and is now cancer-free.
There was Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the 2018 Parkland, Florida, school shooting. He was very passionate and moving and very accurate about his daughter being murdered in the Florida school shooting as she threw her body on another girl to save her. You can still hear him crack in his voice as he said he will never be able to drive her to college o walk her down the aisle. He said how Trump invited him to the white house with other parents and they got involved in a school safety program and at the press conference, the media didn’t even ask about them. He said at that time Trump turned to him and said, “See how these people are?”
Kimberly Guifoyle, Trump adviser and former Fox News panel member gave a rousing speech saying she was a proud Latina and Mother and told how Trump supports Latinos and other minorities and brought down the unemployment numbers in all minorities.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, St Louis couple who defended their property against violent liberal protestors spoke on the need to defend oneself and property and how they stood their ground when faced with these unruly protestors and then they were arrested and charged with having weapons like they were the perpetrators.

He continued: “Joe Biden and the radical left are also now coming for our freedom of speech and want to bully us into submission. If they get their way, it will no longer be the “Silent Majority,” it will be the “Silenced Majority.”
