President Donald Trump was officially nominated for re-election by the Republican Party during the first day of the party’s convention in North Carolina.
Shortly after receiving the nomination, Trump took to the stage in Charlotte, North Carolina as people cheered, “Four more years!”
“If you want to really drive them crazy, say twelve more years,” Trump told the crowd.
A handful of people in the audience began to chant, “Twelve more years” as others cheered.
Later in his speech, Trump claimed that “China will own this country” if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected.
“Our country will never be a socialist country,” Trump said to cheers and “hallelujahs” from the crowd.
Last month, CNN said that ‘Trump must win North Carolina’ and that ‘he is losing there.’
On Monday, 336 delegates participated in a roll-call vote nominating President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for a second-term.
Pence thanked the delegates in person and told viewers “We’re going to make America great again. Again.”
“The choice in this election has never been clearer and the stakes have never been higher,” he said.
