The Republican Party Convention begins today. Participants on the first night include Donald Trump Jr., Nikki Hailey, Senator Tim Scott, and President Donald Trump who claims to attend the four nights in a row.

Days after Joe Biden’s nomination at an all-digital Democratic Convention, never held in U.S. history, it’s now the Republican Party’s turn to encourage its voter base at a hybrid convention that combines speeches in person and in digital format.

The Republican Convention, like the Democrat, is the moment when the party finalizes and presents its political proposals and begins the final stretch of the presidential campaign. This year 336 delegates will attend the convention in Charlotte, North Carolina – the last one had more than 2,400 – to officially nominate Donald Trump and Mike Pence as candidates for Presidente and Vice-President of the United States of America.

The convention will continue until Thursday, when Donald Trump will formally accept the nomination, with a speech from the White House in Washington, D.C.

Vice-President Mike Pence will deliver his acceptance speech in Fort McHenry, Baltimore, on Wednesday. It’s a place of great historical significance, where American soldiers resisted British power in 1814, inspiring Francis Scott Key to write the poem that became the national anthem.


Today you can watch and listen to:

  • Donald Trump Jr, the President’s eldest son and an active member of the presidential campaign.
  • Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only African-American Republican in the Senate.
  • Nikki Hailey, former ambassador to the United Nations, seen as a possible presidential candidate in 2024.
  • Vernon Jones, member of the Georgia House of Representatives, a Democrat who is part of Trump’s response to Republicans who supported Joe Biden last week.
  • Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA. At 26, he’s one of the President’s youngest supporters.
