President Donald Trump: I profoundly accept this nomination for president of the United States (1/3)
President Donald Trump accepts the nomination and delivers remarks at the 2020 Republican National Convention.
Painting a picture of horrors he claims await Americans if Democrat Joe Biden defeats him in November, 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 the former vice president Biden, claiming his election would lead to an economic collapse and violence in American cities. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: https://cnb.cx/2NGeIvi
