The Republican Party formally nominated President Donald Trump for a second term Monday, one of the first acts of a GOP convention that has been dramatically scaled down due to the coronavirus. (Aug. 24)
While the Republican National Convention started early Monday, with President Donald Trump crossing the threshold of delegates needed to be formally nominated for a second term, the marquee event won’t take place until later this week.
Trump will formally accept the nomination in an address at the White House on Thursday.
The Republican National Convention airs from Monday, August 24, to Thursday, August 27.
In contrast to Democrats, who nominated Joe Biden in a virtual roll call from 57 states and territories, Republicans chose a more traditional approach: An in-person event in Charlotte, North Carolina, where delegates are conducting the convention’s official business.
