Eric Trump Delivers Compelling Speech at Convention
– Eric Trump delivers a passionate yet cogent speech in support of Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention.
“I see it in his eyes, the sadness of innocent lives lost like Kate Steinle and Jamiel Shaw, and so many others cut short by illegal immigrants in Sanctuary Cities, victims of a revolving door of government ineptitude and corruption, that leaves innocent Americans defenseless.”
“If Hillary Clinton were elected, she’d be the first president who couldn’t pass a basic background check.”

CLEVELAND — Donald Trump Jr. is sparking chatter here about his own political future after his time in the spotlight at the Republican National Convention.
Hours after casting the decisive votes on behalf of the New York delegation to make the senior Trump’s nomination for president official, he delivered a prime-time speech Tuesday night that even impressed his father’s critics.
Trump Jr. stoked the buzz further on Wednesday as he expressed interest in a potential run for office.
“Maybe when the kids get out of school, I would consider it,” he said at an event sponsored by The Wall Street Journal.
Trump Jr., a 38-year-old father of five children, added that he still has ”a lot to do in my own career.”
His speech Tuesday night was one of the best-received in the convention hall as he touted his father’s business success in an effort to humanize the polarizing real estate mogul.
“I’ve seen it time and time again — that look in his eyes when someone says it can’t be done,” Trump Jr. said. “I saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn’t possibly succeed in politics.”
“His unrelenting determination is why he’s going to become the next president,” he added. “And why I know when my father says he’s going to fix the country, he means it.”

In fact, Cruz repeated language used by the #NeverTrump movement that delegates should “vote their conscious.” Yet, not even Newt Gingrich could calm them down.
Not only did Cruz draw boos and a tense moment on the RNC floor, he incited a right-wing Twitter meltdown.
The audience was so furious that Cruz’s wife Heidi had to be escorted out by security.”
