Speak of the Trump cult was amplified within the hours main as much as the opening day when Trump’s members of the family took up almost half dozen keynote speaker slots and the celebration declared it would don’t have any platform (manifesto) aside from to “enthusiastically assist the President’s America-first agenda.” Among the many few non-Trump members of the family listed to talk is Nikki Haley, the previous Indian-American governor of South Carolina, who’s now firmly within the Trump orbit who didn’t again him in 2016 (inflicting Trump to tweet “The folks of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley”) however who has since been gained over.
