(FOX NEWS) – President Trump’s eldest son, six hostages freed during his administration, two of his most fervent supporters in Congress, a Black state lawmaker in Georgia, and the St. Louis homeowners who made national headlines by wielding firearms at protesters outside their home demonstrating systemic racism are the biggest draws on the first night of the Republican National Convention.
Also grabbing the spotlight on inaugural evening will be two political stars from South Carolina who may have national ambitions of their own in 2024: former ambassador to the United Nations and former governor Nikki Haley and Sen. Tim Scott.
But the president will never stray too far from the spotlight during the convention – which is a 4-day celebration of Trump and a 4-day condemnation of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The president is expected to appear Monday night with frontline workers in the battle against the coronavirus and with six Americans held hostage in Iran, Syria, and Venezuela who were freed during his tenure in the White House.
