RNC 2016 2Cleveland, Ohio — Donald J. Trump was officially nominated as the Republican candidate for President Tuesday night, July 19, after his son, Donald J. Trump Jr., announced the New York delegate count that put him over the top — and he was acclaimed the standard bearer on a voice vote of the convention.
Indiana governor Mike Pence was nominated Vice Presidential candidate after Trump’s nomination.

The rest of the night the Republican speakers made up of politicians and businessmen and women took the stage to praise Trump — and almost all of them were there to vilify presumptive Democratic Presidential opponent Hillary Clinton on national TV and live stream globally.
Clinton’s most effective critic was New Jersey Governor and former U.S. District Attorney Chris Christie. Christie’s style was in the manner of a prosecutor making his closing statement. Christie went after Clinton on her flawed foreign policy in Syria, Nigeria, Libya, China and Cuba. And he threw Russia in for good measure. His statements were matter-of-fact and hard to dispute. In Syria and Nigeria she was accused by Christie of supporting the wrong leaders in Assad and an Al Qaeda terrorist, which resulted in the 400,000 dead at the hands of Assad and hundreds of school girls abducted and still missing in Nigeria. Christie found Hillary Guilty! Her intense support of destroying Libya left it in economic ruins, open to the domination of ISIS — Guilty. Cuba her failure to ask for payback after dropping the Cuba embargo when Cuba could have extradited a woman who murdered a New Jersey police officer — Guilty! Christie said Clinton was responsible for negotiating the worst nuclear arms deal with Iran —guilty or not guilty!
We didn’t disqualify Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States; the facts of her life and career disqualify her, Christi commented

The State of Arkansas was represented on the platform Tuesday night by Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
Rutledge addressed the crowd telling them this is what a real Arkansas woman sounds like. Rutledge accused Clinton of poor judgment, poor policies and poor decisions. To view a video of Rutledge speaking, click HERE.
Gov. Hutchinson jumped on the anti-Clinton bandwagon citing Hillary’s attempt to reform the health care system under President Bill Clinton. He also said her policies contributed to instability in Libya and Egypt. Talking about her handling of classified material, Hutchinson said that if elected President, Clinton would undermine our national security. To view a video of Gov. Hutchinson speaking, click HERE.
It wasn’t an all bash Hillary night. Donald J. Trump Jr. got up and gave a pretty good speech about his father, and Tiffany Trump got up and gushed about daddy.
Scheduled to speak Wednesday, with activities starting at 7:20 p.m. ET, are the vice presidential nominee, Mike Pence (to be introduced by Trump), Ted Cruz, Newt Gingrich and Gov. Scott Walker.
Concluding activities Thursday, which start at 7:20 p.m. ET, will be Donald Trump’s acceptance speech. Also speaking will be RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Ivanka Trump, Fran Tarkenton, and Jerry Falwell Jr.
