The four-day Republican National Convention begins Monday, culminating in Presidential Donald Trump accepting the nomination for a second term from the White House.

The GOP says the convention will contrast with the Democrats’ largely taped gathering last week by featuring more live events with audiences from Washington and around the country. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said it would feature “people whose lives have been impacted and measurably and consequently changed due to the efforts and policies of President Trump.”
