The Republican National Convention (RNC) begins on Monday, Aug. 24, and is sure to be the beginning of a four-day celebration of President Trump, coupled with plenty of criticism aimed at the Democratic nominee Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Last week the American public was subjected to four days of warnings and attacks on U.S. citizens by the DNC, who promised if President Trump were to win the next election America would see very dark days ahead, with emphasis placed on the president’s handling of the CCP Virus.
By contrast, the president is promising to lift the mood of Americans, with a positive vision of “American greatness.”
Speaking at a convention of the Council for National Policy, consisting of mostly leading Republican donors, the president offered assurances. “Where Joe Biden sees American darkness, I see American greatness,” he said.

Democratic convention versus Republican convention
“Four straight days attacking America, as a racist, horrible country that must be redeemed,” President Trump said, describing the DNC as the “darkest, gloomiest” convention.
“Joe Biden grimly declared a season of American darkness, but look at what we’ve accomplished, until the plague came in, and look, we’re doing it again,” he assured the donors.
Calling his presidency the most successful period of time in the history of the country,” he also promised to highlight “what we’ve accomplished,” at the RNC.
In an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said a focus during the convention will be on the great achievements the Trump administration has accomplished.
“We’re going to talk about what this president has done to revive this economy, rebuild the military, strengthen the constitutional liberties with conservatives to our courts at every level,” he said, and added they will make the Democrats agenda on higher taxes, socialized medicine, open borders, abortion on demand “clear to the American people next week.”
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News’s Bill Hemmer that “this is going to be a very positive uplifting convention.”
At the DNC there was a sprinkling of Hollywood actors, and McDaniel was quick to point out the differences between the two conventions. “The president’s convention is going to be about real people. I’m a real mom. I don’t play one on TV,” McDaniel stressed. “The president’s going to talk about real families, real people, what’s affected their lives, how his policies have made lives better and then what the future holds for America. It’s going to be more aspirational, less grim.”
DNC Chairman Tom Perez pointed out on Friday that “chaos will be the order of the day” at the GOP convention. He has predicted that the Republican gathering “will be marked by chaos, chaos, chaos.”
He was ready to paint a grim picture of the president and said that President Trump will “do what he always does—lie, scare, distract, divide, and make next week all about himself.”
Perez said Democrats “are not taking our foot off the gas next week. While Republicans put together their chaos convention, the DNC war room will be working around the clock to speak truth to power, to expose the disastrous consequences of Trump’s chaos presidency, which has led only to crisis after crisis after crisis.”
Perez claimed, “Unity is clearly not the message for them. Division is the message for them. The only way [Trump] succeeds is to divide and conquer. That’s his only play in the playbook,” he said, reports Fox News.
