The 2016 Republican National Convention was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. EDT Monday. Focused on the theme of presidential nominee-in-waiting Donald Trump's campaign, "Make America Great Again," each day will have a similarly-named theme.
While each day's business schedule has not yet been released by party officials—Monday is supposed to include a vote on the proposed party platform—it did release the daily order of prime-time speakers. Here's the rundown:
Monday: Make America Safe Again
From attacks on our own soil and overseas to the tragedy in Benghazi, the policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have left us vulnerable. Our immigration system is broken, leaving our country open to security threats and the negative consequences of illegal immigration. A Donald Trump administration will listen to and learn from our nation's heroes who have put themselves in harm's way and pursue a national security strategy and foreign policy that will strengthen our military and make America safe again. Headliners: Melania Trump, Lieutenant General (ret.) Michael Flynn, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Jason Beardsley and U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.).
Tuesday: Make America Work Again
The Obama years have delivered anemic economic growth, the lowest labor-force participation rate in 38 years, and job-killing regulations and legislation like Obamacare. These policies are crushing middle-class families, and a Hillary Clinton presidency would merely be an Obama third term that would deliver the same poor results. Donald Trump is a successful businessman with a solid record of creating jobs and the experience we need to get America's economy up and running ... and get Americans working again. Headliners: Donald Trump, Jr., U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va), Ben Carson and Kimberlin Brown.
Wednesday: Make America First Again
America has always been an exceptional nation. Our Founding Fathers created a system of government that has protected our liberty, allowed American ingenuity to flourish, and lifted people out of poverty by creating the conditions for opportunity and prosperity. Unfortunately, years of bad policies and poor leadership have weakened our position in the world. Under a Trump administration, America will once again be a beacon of progress and opportunity. Headliners: Lynne Patton; Eric Trump; former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista; and Indiana Governor Mike Pence, whom Donald Trump has chosen as his vice presidential running mate.
Thursday: Make America One Again
America faces serious challenges at home and threats from abroad. In order to turn our challenges into opportunities and keep America secure, we need leadership that will focus on what unites us, not what divides us. Donald Trump will move our country beyond the divisive identity politics that have been holding us back by restoring leadership, building trust, and focusing on our shared love of country and our common goal of making America great again. Headliners: Peter Thiel, Tom Barrack, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump
