President Donald Trump Arrives In Charlotte As Day One Of RNC Commences | PHOTOS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Donald Trump waves at media as he steps off of Air Force One in Charlotte Monday just moments ahead of being formally nominated for reelection by delegates at the scaled-down RNC.

North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley delivered the official nominating speech for President Trump, with Florida Republican Party Chairman Joe Gruters seconding the motion. These nominations were a tribute to North Carolina, the host state of the Convention, and Florida, President Trump’s home state.

State delegates also unanimously voted for Vice President Mike Pence as the Vice-Presidential nominee.

RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel made the following statement about President Trump and Vice President Pence’s renomination:

“This is an historic moment in the life of our nation as we re-nominate Donald Trump and Mike Pence for President and Vice President and set our Party on a path to victory. Today’s unanimous re-nomination is a reflection of the unified support for the Trump-Pence ticket.”

Vice President Pence will formally give his acceptance speech on Wednesday, with President Trump closing the Convention on Thursday with his official acceptance speech.

Ivanka Trump, daughter and Senior Advisor to the President, also made the trip to Charlotte after they both visited the Asheville-area earlier in the day to tour Flavor First Growers and Packers.
