President Trump, Lady Melania Trump, Bruce discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
We saw last week. The Democratic convention had things actually play out. Certainly not optimistic, Bruce. I think that came as a bit of a surprise. It really started with the president's speech in Charlotte yesterday. He was only supposed to give a brief remarks to the delegates There ended up talking for 52 minutes and didn't really offer up much optimism. It was just a lot of A long list of grievances of issues the president has with the right wide variety of people in groups and then that extended into the programming. Last night, you heard Republicans in their associates warned of a potential dystopian future of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were to be elected the next president and vice president. They did talk a little bit about President Trump's accomplishments in office. They tried to, in many ways, rewrite his approach to the Corona virus pandemic. But to your point, Bruce, the Republicans were promising that this was going to be all about hope and optimism. And we didn't really see too much of that. Yesterday. First Lady Melania Trump is said to be tonight's keynote speaker from the newly renovated White House Rose Garden. Do we know what to expect from her speech? Maybe now is one.

As of yet, is the president gonna be speaking every night of the convention. We do expect some sort of an appearance. They're calling it every night from the President Bruce, you know, Yesterday we saw two little moments from the White House where we saw him with first responders in people that have been dealing with a crowd, a virus pandemic and You know, it could be something along those lines. You know, the Republican Party has promised surprises each and every night, But we know that those surprises in some way, shape or form will include the president. He is the star of the Republican Party. This is the party of Trump on DH. That's exactly how this convention is playing out. Alright. Thanks. Ryan Appreciated as always.
