GOP works to unify around Trump

CLEVELAND — The Republican Party largely succeeded Tuesday in unifying around Donald Trump and getting its convention back on track after a rough opening day.

The main news came with the official nomination of Donald Trump as the party’s presidential pick, a process that went off without any major hitch.

The absence of any real protest during Trump’s nomination was one of the biggest surprises of the day — and a welcome one not just for the businessman but also for Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who had worked overtime to thwart the anti-Trump forces.

The candidate’s home state of New York delivered the crucial votes to make Trump the nominee, with all four of his adult children there for the big moment.

“It is my honor to be able to throw Donald Trump over the top tonight,” his son Donald Trump, Jr. said. “Congratulations Dad, we love you.”

    Donald Trump is our nominee. We all need to work to help him win in November. Donald Trump is much more likely to govern by the conservative ideals that we hold in common than Hillary Clinton will. I don’t want to give Hillary the chance to appoint four or five justices to the Supreme Court.

    I was not a Trump supporter at all. He still is not my choice but the hildabeast must be stopped. She makes the muzzie in chief look as good as he made carter look good. We the people can NOT afford to put the countries survival into her hands. Her possibly becoming president reminds me of the song Eve of Destruction. I have also seen how his kids have turned out and that is encouraging to me. You have to be doing something very right to have children as good as his seem to be. This being said he will get my vote and I pray that he turns out as good as many of his hard core supporters think he will. Nothing would make me happier than to have to say I was dead wrong about him.

    They had no choice. They realized the “Will of the People” had spoken. Spoken from all segments of our society and all colors in our society. H just went and schmoozed Muslims in Texas. She was seen and it didn’t look good. Texas, especially Amarillo not happy with their refugees. Crime rates off the roof.

    If they had not gone with Trump they would have been dead. What Trump has done is unlock the “Taboo” box. Security, Economy, Trade. He has spoken in depth on these subjects. He has stayed on message from day one. He will use our energy, he will use our steel, aluminum etc. He will use our people for jobs. He will put us first. No more pandering to Muslims. No more will they rule the WH. He will build that fence and he will tell Mexico you take care of it or no billions from us. I listened to the congressional hearings on illegals, refugees, terrorism and the deal with Iran and I was horrified at what the witnesses had to say. Believe me folks we are in such trouble with O at the helm and H is no better.

    Now if Trump doesn’t stay focused and doesn’t do what he says then believe me people will get him taken down.

      What I kept thinking about Obama, I can’t believe he hadn’t been taken out! And you’re right about the muslims in Texas, and Texas needs a good ole fashion cleansing!

      1. Tiger says:

        Take a look at this video. Warning Rodney it is rough. Share if you want. Yes it is so mystifying to me, with all the enemies he has made throughout the world that he is alive.

    As an Independent, having fully supported the Honorable Senator Ted Cruz during the primary season..Senator Cruz falling short on the delegates needed .. Leaving myself an millions of others feeling hopelessly lost. Just one month ago I chose to jump of the pity band wagon an Support Donald Trump.. Not because he is the lesser of Two evils not only because Hillary is a lying criminal who should by all accounts be in prison ..But rather I see a glimmer of Hope That Donald Trump will succeed as a President to secure our nations borders bring a sense of safety back to the American people. Free up our economic engine ,removing the layer upon layer of Burrcratic red tape eviromentle regulation destroying our economy. I also see Donald Trump defending Our Constitution an the Bill of rights. I also see Trump as a strong firm hand guiding our foriegn relations an trade bills.. Therefore I to stand with Donald J.Trump

      Good to hear. We are in serious trouble and the GOP could not continue in the direction it has gone for years, the way of the RINO and they realized Trump crowds were made up of ALL types of people, from ALL levels of society and that woke them up. They ALL, including Cruz who I once supported until I learned who his wife was and saw him do some very nasty things realized the People had indeed spoken.

      Trump will have a very STRONG administration filled with strong men/women and like a wise leader he will delegate and he will listen to them. If he fails us believe me he will be Impeached.

  • Douglas B Briggman says:

    I’m all in I cannot nor would I ever turn this country over to Hilary Clinton

    1. Tiger says:

      You know Douglas that is the biggest vote getting for Trump, everyone saw what Billy did with Lynch, saw what Comey did and saw H get on that plane with O and this is the first time, in 100 years that a sitting president has actually shown his colors and gone out to uphold the candidate of his party in such a way. O is the POTUS and that should include ALL of us but he is showing that his U.S. doesn’t include Christians, whites, X military etc. His U.S. is only for dark skinned people.

      1. Douglas B Briggman says:

        I agree, He “O” is the biggest divisive president this nation has seen. I honestly think he hates this country and what it stands for.

        1. Tiger says:

          He does and last night I spent about an hour talking over the net with Russians and other Europeans the world is watching our elections. They call him a stupid N and they know he is bad news. They are hoping Trump wins they say we need a strong leader.

          Hey take a look at this video and please share if you want.

      They had no choice. They showed their colors, they pulled out every single trick they had and it was mystical how they were foiled at every turn including their computers going kaput when trying to change the rules.
