Plans for Day Two of the RNC

Make America Work again is the theme for Tuesday, the second day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland starting at 5:30 p.m.

For the presumptive candidate, the roll call of states will likely be a highlight. At a morning press conference, Paul Manafort—chairman of the Trump presidential campaign—expressed excitement that Tuesday evening Donald Trump will be the official Republican presidential candidate.

“All of you who doubted that he could be nominated will no longer be able to say, ‘Yes, but maybe it won’t happen.’ It will have happened,” says Manafort.

National Rifle Association Executive Director Chris Cox will make his case for a Trump presidency.

GOP heavy weights will be among the speakers, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin), and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (California).

Trumps former rivals New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson are also on the schedule.

The soon-to-be candidate himself will make a virtual appearance, speaking remotely from New York. Adding to what the campaigns efforts to present Trump as a family man, two of his children will speak, Tiffany Trump and Donald Trump, Jr.

Here's the schedule for the convention.
