All the events today went off with a great feeling of camaraderie, and belonging again in a great nation….America! It started out earlier in the day with events from many speakers such as Roger Stone, Infowars Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopolis, and Washington Post who had a robot reporter on wheels with a computer screen face, interviewing several people who were in the convention hall. The police outside did a fantastic job keeping the protesters peaceful. We have to give the Cleveland Police Department and Bikers For Trump a big thank you!
There was a point on the floor of the convention when it became angry and revolting in an attempt to change the party rules. Calling for a roll call from certain states to change the rules. But this dissension was squashed by the GOP Officials.

During these speeches there were many times people were moved to tears. Especially when Pat Smith talked about her son’s murder in Benghazi. What she faced during a time she remembered, standing beside her son’s coffin when Hillary looked her right in her face and told her it was all about a video that had caused the attack. Later on Pat found out that was a horrible lie. To this day, Pat says Hillary Clinton has never given her a real reason as to why her son died that fateful night. Kent and Terry Kelly Willis told another horrible story of how their brother died trying to defend a border that Obama and Clinton left vulnerable because of foreign policies and open borders. Mark Geist and John Tiegen recalled exactly what they faced trying to defend the compound in Benghazi.
Melania Trump also recounted how she knows her husband, Donald Trump loves America and his family. She noted he was a good father, grandfather and has always loved America. She stated he would never let America down, and he would never give up. Her speech left me with a wonderful feeling about my candidate, especially when she said he would put Americans first. Her speech is here
Donald Trump did appear to introduce his wife, Melania, normally as I understand it, the candidate does not usually come to the convention until the last day. It was wonderful seeing both of them together. A loving couple, you could see how proud Donald Trump was!
I hear and see on Twitter how racist some people think Donald Trump is, but his wife, and friends and family all tell a different story. I believe this is a smear spread by the Democratic party, and anyone who knows him never once saw any racist views. I believe and trust Donald Trump, I see how through his life he relates to the middle/blue collared class much better than the wealthy elitists.
Rudy Giuliani’s speech was a standing ovation! He rocked the convention. He made a statement which is so true, “whats with Black America, White America, no it should be all of America.” Again, stressing that we are all Americans and there should be no divisions. I am with Rudy as is Donald Trump. Together as unity, no division, pulling together is the only way we can Make America Great Again.
Rudy, as well as others have said we need to call the enemy what it is “radical Islam.” We have to stop worrying about hurting feelings and start protecting Americans. If we don’t change the way we handle terrorism we can never Make America Safe Again.
In closing, I feel that with Donald Trump we have a chance to turn this country around. We need to change foreign/immigration policies that are a detriment to our sovereignty and safety. We need to know who is coming into this country. They have to be vetted and cleared for entry, not a free-for-all.
