Trump To Promise 'Americanism, Not Globalism' In GOP Address

As he has in recent weeks, Trump pledged to bring back law and order to the USA, echoing a theme that Richard Nixon used to win the White House in 1968.

Trump "humbly and gratefully" accepted the nomination before 2,000 raucous Republican Party activists in Cleveland, in a strikingly populist speech that offered a dark view of the American condition.

According to a leaked draft speech transcript published by the website Politico.com, Trump seldom went off script and when he did, he often repeated what he had just said and added an exclamation point.

Trump in the speech called for tax cuts.

Gov. Scott Walker refused to hit Texas Sen. But when it became clear that Cruz would not utter the magic phrase, "Vote for Donald Trump", the crowd turned against him and he left the stage, smirking, to a percussive blast of boos. The remarks, in an interview with The New York Times, deviated from decades of us foreign policy doctrine and seemed to suggest he would put new conditions on the 67-year-old alliance's bedrock principle of collective defense.

Trump's wife, Melania, foreshadowed it all on opening night, noting, "It would not be a Trump contest without excitement and drama".

He repeated numerous controversial themes of his bruising primary campaign - banning foreigners from countries linked to terrorism, building a wall on the Mexican border and renegotiating unfavorable trade deals with China. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Trump "is essentially telling Russians/other bad actors" that the United States "is not fully committed to supporting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance".

In introducing her father, Ivanka Trump delivered a powerful message aimed at women voters.

"Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it", Trump told a fired-up crowd of backers that packed the downtown Quicken Loans Arena. "I think that's what happened on the floor", said Sean Gertner of Jackson, N.J. "There are still a lot of people at the convention and within the party who are not sure where he's going to stand".

He vowed to build a "great border wall".

The final day of the convention was being staged under the motto Make America One Again, a play on Trump's campaign slogan Make America Great Again.

Donald Trump is going to "fight for equal pay for equal work".

On the eve of his address, Trump suggested a new course for USA foreign policy, saying he would set different conditions before coming to the defense of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

"The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put America First".

"We will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace".

Democrats, Republicans and global partners warned of the risks of backing away from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obligations.

While Trump in past months has proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, he said Thursday the suspension would apply only to immigrants "from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism".

Democrat Clinton's top policy adviser, Jake Sullivan, said Trump's proposal showed he was "temperamentally unfit and fundamentally ill-prepared to be our commander in chief". Indeed, in some ways the delegates at this convention seem to have gone beyond even Mr Trump on politically extreme rhetoric.

LISA DESJARDINS: As he finished, Cruz was booed off the stage.

The four-day eventincluded a failed bid by anti-Trump delegates for a rule change allowing them to vote for alternative candidates, and a refusal by his main primary rival, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, to endorse him.

For one hour and 17 minutes, candidate Trump reasserted numerous nationalistic themes of his campaign, often shouting his lines to the roar of a packed convention hall. Since the Trump campaign released a draft of the speech beforehand, Politico fact checked the speech, and there's, let's say, lots of Trumpiness rather than truthiness in his words. He moved no closer to an endorsement, saying only that he, too, would be watching and listening Thursday night.

Mr Trump's nomination has been a primary source of conflict within the party.

It remains unclear if that message will be enough to unite a Republican Party riven with doubts over his candidature. Trump wrote on Twitter.
