Never have I been more proud to be a Trump- Eric Trump

Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s son took to the stage at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Wednesday  evening and gave an emotional speech during which he thanked his father whom he called his best friend.

He called on people to vote for Donald Trump. “Vote for the candidate who has never been a politician. Vote for the candidate who has never received a paycheck from our government. Vote for the candidate who can’t be bought or purchased or intimidated or steered from the path that is right and true. And quite frankly friends, vote for the one candidate who does not need this job,” Eric Trump said.

Eric Trump said he was very proud of his father and his achievements and never been more proud to carry his name. “Dad you have once again taught us by example, you are my hero, you are my best friend, you or the next president of the United States,” Eric Trump said.

Donald Trump, the republican presidential nominee was in the crowd as his son spoke and stood up and applauded giving his son a thumbs up as he concluded his speech.

After vanquishing 16 party rivals, warring with much of the Republican establishment and sparking controversy at the party convention, Donald Trump on Tuesday secured the party’s 2016 nomination for the White House.

Trump won with 1,725 delegates, followed by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas with 475 delegates, Ohio Governor John Kasich with 120 and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida with 114. Three other candidates emerged with a total of 12 delegates.

After the presidential vote, the convention by voice vote nominated Indiana Governor Mike Pence, 57, Trump’s choice for his vice presidential running mate.

A wealthy New York real estate developer and a reality TV celebrity, the 70-year-old Trump was a long shot when he entered the race for the Republican nomination more than a year ago, having never held elected office.
