Quotes from last day of Republican National Convention themed ‘Land of Greatness’

President Donald Trump attacked rival Joe Biden in front of a large crowd on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday, as Republicans warned of a lawless and dangerous America if the Democrat wins the November election. Following are excerpts from the speeches made by Trump and others on the last day of the Republican National Convention, much of which was pre-recorded due to the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: “The entire planet has been struck by a new and powerful invisible enemy. Like those brave Americans before us, we are meeting this challenge. We’re delivering life-saving therapies. And we’ll produce a vaccine before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner.” “This towering American spirit has prevailed over every challenge, and lifted us to the summit of human endeavor.” “And yet, despite all of our greatness as a nation, everything we ever achieved is now in danger. This is the most important election in the history of our country. “ “At no time before have voters faced a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies, or two agendas. This election will decide whether we save the American dream, or whether we allow a socialist agenda to demolish our cherished destiny.” “So tonight, I ask you a simple question. How can the Democrat Party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?” IVANKA TRUMP, DAUGHTER OF DONALD TRUMP: “Donald Trump did not come to Washington to win praise from the Beltway elites. Donald Trump came to Washington for one reason and one reason alone, to make America great again.” “Washington has not changed Donald Trump. Donald Trump has changed Washington.” SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL OF KENTUCKY: “Today’s Democratic Party doesn’t want to improve life for middle America. They prefer that all of us in flyover country keep quiet. And let them decide how we should live our lives. They want to tell you when you can go to work. When your kids can go to school. They want to tax your job out of existence, and then send you a government check for unemployment. They want to tell you what kind of car you can drive, what sources of information are credible, and even how many hamburgers you can eat.” U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is seen on a video screen addressing the final night of the 2020 Republican National Convention over a large crowd of Trump supporters expected to number around 1500 people gathered on the South Lawn of the White House to attend U.S. President Donald Trump's acceptance speech as the 2020 Republican presidential nominee in Washington, U.S., August 27, 2020. REUTERS/Carlos Barria“I’m immensely proud of the work the Republican Senate has done, acting as a firewall against Nancy Pelosi’s agenda.” JEFF VAN DREW, U.S. REPRESENTATIVE FROM NEW JERSEY WHO SWITCHED FROM THE DEMOCRATIC TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY: “Joe Biden is being told what to do by the radicals running my former party, the same radicals trying to install him as their puppet president.” PATRICK LYNCH, PRESIDENT OF THE NEW YORK CITY POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION: “The radical left doesn’t really want better policing. They don’t really care about making the justice system fairer. What they want is no policing.” RUDY GIULIANI, DONALD TRUMP’S PERSONAL LAWYER AND FORMER NEW YORK MAYOR: “These continuous riots in Democratic cities, gives you a good view of the future under Biden.” DAN SCAVINO, WHITE HOUSE DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF FOR COMMUNICATIONS: “While they call it chaos, President Trump calls it change.” U.S. HOUSE MINORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY OF CALIFORNIA: “Four years ago, President Trump promised to be your voice. He kept that promise. But there’s still so much more to do. The choice before you could not be clearer. Forward in freedom or backward in socialism. Forward in prosperity, or backward in poverty. Forward in personal liberty or backwards in more government control.” BEN CARSON, U.S. SECRETARY OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT: “We have a choice: Do we want big government that controls our lives from cradle to grave? Or do we believe in the power and wisdom of the people and their ability to self-govern with help from a limited federal government? Our president, Donald J. Trump, believes in the people. He is one of us. He makes promises, and he keeps them.” Slideshow (4 Images)DANA WHITE, PRESIDENT OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS PROMOTION COMPANY, THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP: “Make no mistake about it. We still have a long way to go. And that is why we need a leader, with President Trump’s unique attributes, at this critical time.”
