    The Republican National Convention has been a family affair for President Donald Trump, featuring speeches from first lady Melania Trump and all four of his adult children this week. 

    Ivanka Trump, who spoke on the closing night of the convention, praised her father’s tenure in office, alluding his antagonistic, often crude comments toward lawmakers and other public figures. 

    « I recognize that my father’s communication style is not to everyone’s taste, but the results speak for themselves, » she said. 

    The president’s oldest daughter, who serves in an official capacity as an advisor to her father, spoke glowingly of the president’s response to the pandemic, as well as his military and criminal justice policies. 

    « I’ve watched (him) take on the failed policies of the past and do what no other leader has done before, » she said.

    She touted Trump’s criminal justice reform law in particular, which she described as having « rectified the disparities in the 1994 Biden crime bill that disproportionately hurt African Americans. »

    Donald Trump Jr. was the first of the president’s children to speak at the convention. His girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, also spoke on Monday. 

    Trump Jr. set the tone of the convention as combative, calling Democratic nominee Joe Biden « Beijing Biden » and « the Loch Ness monster of the swamp. »Â 

    Trump Jr. praised his father’s economic record in the White House, saying that his father’s cuts in taxes and regulations provided “rocket fuel” to the economy, boosting growth and bringing about the lowest unemployment rate in nearly 50 years.

    « After eight years of Obama and Biden’s slow growth, Trump’s policies have been like rocket fuel to the economy and especially to the middle class, » he said. « Biden has promised to take that money back out of your pocket and keep it in the swamp. »

    Trump Jr. blamed the country’s economic collapse in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic on the « Chinese Communist Party, » saying that they « know he’ll weaken us both economically and on a world stage. »

    The president has overseen a solid economy since taking office in 2017, but his administration has often mischaracterized the state of the economy under President Obama and overstated its own contributions to it. The economy has undergone a steady recovery since the Great Recession of 2007-09, the longest expansion in American history. 

    « As the virus began to spread, the President acted quickly and ensured ventilators got the hospitals that needed them most, » he said. « He delivered PPE to our brave frontline workers, and he rallied the mighty American private sector to tackle this new challenge. »Â 

    Trump Jr.’s assertion about federal dispersal of PPE and ventilators contradicts what state leaders from both sides of the aisle said about their own supply needs in the early months of the pandemic. 

    Eric Trump, one of President Donald Trump’s sons, made his case for his father’s reelection on Tuesday, the second night of the Republican National Convention. He called this election a fight for freedom « that only my father can win. » (Aug. 26)

    Trump, who helps manage his father’s company, the Trump Organization, highlighted his father’s military policies and said that Democrats want to eliminate American cultural images. 

    « My father rebuilt the mighty American military, adding new jets, aircraft carriers, » he said. « He increased wages for our incredible men and women in uniform. He expanded our military defense budget to $721 billion per year. »

    The younger Trump blamed Democrats for the destruction of monuments that have occurred in protests around the country in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd, and extended that into the dissolution of other American symbols. 

    « (Democrats) want to destroy the monuments of our forefathers. They want to disrespect our flag, burn the stars and stripes that represent patriotism and the American dream, » he said. « That’s what a vote for Donald Trump represents. It’s a vote for the American spirit, the American dream, and for the American flag. »

    Trump also echoed his brother’s characterization of Biden and China, calling the former vice president a « total pushover » for « communist China. »Â 

    He delivered a personal message to the president, noting that while he missed working with him each day, « I’m damn proud to be on the front lines of this fight. I am proud of what you are doing for this country. »

    Eric Trump closed by acknowledging the recent death of Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother. « Dad, let’s make Uncle Robert very proud. »

    Newly minted Georgetown Law school graduate, Tiffany Trump, took to center stage at the Republican National Convention Tuesday evening to make a pitch for a second term for her father, Donald Trump. (Aug. 25)

    Tiffany Trump, who has been less involved in politics or the public stage than her siblings, also praised her father’s policies and criticized the media in her speech Tuesday night. 

    Trump, who recently graduated from Georgetown University’s law school, said she related to other graduates entering the job market during a recession. 

    « As a recent graduate, I can relate to so many of you who might be looking for a job, » she said. « My father built a thriving economy once, and believe me, he will do it again. »

    In particular, Trump singled out her father’s support of policies that would make medical drugs more accessible and inexpensive, but made false claims in the process. 

    « If you believe in expanding quality and affordable healthcare, only President Trump, my father, signed ‘right to try’ into law, the favored nations clause, and other actions to lower drug prices and keep Americans from getting ripped off, » she said. 

    The president did sign the « right to try » law in 2018, which gives terminally ill patients the ability to access experimental drugs that have not won approval from the Food and Drug Administration. 

    But Trump has not signed the « favored nations » clause, which would lower certain Medicare drug prices by tying prices to those paid in other countries, according to multiple media outlets. 

    The president held a signing ceremony for four executive orders aimed at lowering drug prices in July, but delayed the order on the favored nations clause –  the most consequential of the orders –  until Aug. 24, a date that passed without the White House moving forward on the order or saying if it will. 

    The president’s youngest daughter also criticized the media, saying that people are « manipulated and visibly coerced by the media and tech giants. »Â 

    « Rather than allowing Americans the right to form our own beliefs, this misinformation system keeps people mentally enslaved to the ideas they deem correct, » she said. « This has fostered unnecessary fear and divisiveness amongst us. »
