The first night of the Republican National Convention (RNC) came on with a bang.
Among the speakers was Donald Trump Jr., who absolutely skewered Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s economic plan — which he said is “designed to crush” working Americans.
Many were expecting the RNC to push Trump’s achievements right out of the gate, but Trump Jr. also went after Biden’s economic plan.
With so many Americans out of work and so many small businesses closed due to coronavirus lockdowns, the president oldest son wanted to make sure everyone knows that Biden will only make it worse.
“[Biden’s] already talking about shutting the country down—again,” Trump Jr. said. “It’s madness.”
“Democrats claim to be for workers, but they’ve spent the entire pandemic trying to sneak a tax break for millionaires in Democrat states into the COVID relief bill,” he added. “Then they attacked my father for suspending the payroll tax for middle-class workers. In fact, if you think about it, Joe Biden’s entire economic platform seems designed to crush the working man and woman.”
Bringing it home
After getting Biden out of the way, Jr. finally got around to talking about the achievements of this administration and how it will help Americans on the other side of this pandemic. That, really, is what voters need to hear.
After a full week of hearing “I am not this guy” from the Democrats, voters need to know what Trump has done and will continue to do if he gets re-elected.
Republicans have a huge edge over Democrats on this front right now because the DNC barely talked about Biden’s agenda. They seem to be counting on persuading voters to “settle for Biden” solely to oust Trump — not very inspiring when you consider the next president will be in charge of our country for at least the next four years.
Trump Jr. also had an excellent closing, really pushing the idea of the American dream … the America our Founders had in mind when they won our independence.
“You can have it. That is the life, that is the country, that is the world that Donald Trump and the Republican Party are after. And yes, you can have it,” Trump Jr. said. “Because unlike Joe Biden and the radical left Democrats, our party is open to everyone. It all starts by rejecting the radicals who want to drag us into the dark and embracing the man who represents a bright and beautiful future for ALL. It starts by reelecting Donald J. Trump president of the United States.” Watch the full speech below:
