Themed "Make America Work Again," night two of the Republican National Convention featured 19 speakers, including former GOP presidential hopefuls, members of the House and Senate, a golfer, an actor, and two of Donald Trump's children. These speakers addressed our country's current economic state, which has experienced what the GOP's official convention website refers to as "anemic economic growth." The overall goal for Tuesday's speeches was to defend Trump's "solid record" and "experience" and how his status as a businessman will, well, make America work again. One of Trump's children, Tiffany Trump, hasn't been especially vocal about her father's candidacy, and definitely not to the extent that her half-siblings have. But a transcript of Tiffany Trump's Republican National Convention speech shows she's more than ready to take on the challenge.
On Tuesday night, Trump spoke of her father and even mentioned that she was a newbie to the political convention circuit. (Although her nerves didn't show.)
The 22-year-old graduated from the University of Pennsylvania this past May, securing degrees in sociology and urban studies. Trump wasn’t raised a New Yorker as half-siblings Ivanka, Barron, Eric, and Donald Trump, Jr. have, but was raised by her mother in Los Angeles. The GOP's official convention website describes Trump as "a fashion model, singer, and influential presence on social media." This "social media" credit nods to Trump's 160,000 Instagram followers.
Trump's boyfriend Ross Mechanic, a registered Democrat, sat beside her on the first night of the convention. But if the two held contrary views to Trump's famously bombastic father, none of that showed — in fact, Trump's remarks proved that she was ready to stand by her father no matter what.
