Republican Party formally nominates Trump for second term
The Republican Party formally nominates President Donald Trump to seek a second term on Monday, the first day of a scaled-back convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Overwhelming support from delegates around the country quickly got Trump to the needed 1,276 minimum of votes. He is due to speak at the convention shortly, after flying down from Washington, DC.
