WATCH: Vice President Mike Pence’s full speech at the Republican National Convention

Vice President Mike Pence spoke on the third night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 26, 2020. The vice president began his speech by saying the Trump administration “inherited a military hollowed out by devastating budget cuts,” when he entered office, as well as “an economy struggling to break out of the slowest recovery since the great depression.” Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic the economy had been growing steadily for a decade, including under former President Barack Obama, but it had been the slowest economic recovery since World War II. Pence touted the administration’s operation to take down Iran’s top military general, Qassem Soleimani, a decision that former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden criticized. Pence said Biden’s rebuke of Soleimani’s killing was not surprising “because history records that Joe Biden even opposed the operation that took down Osama Bin Laden.” Biden has previously recounted that he told Obama during a 2011 national security meeting to wait for confirmation on Bin Laden’s location before ordering his killing, but later backtracked and said he told the former president to follow his instincts on the raid. In regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pence spoke of the administration's partnership with the private sector on producing supplies and conducting testing for the novel coronavirus. Pence said the U.S. was conducting 800,000 COVID-19 tests a day, although this number has fluctuated between 600,000 and 800,000 in recent weeks, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The vice president also spoke about the administration’s pledge to produce 100,000 ventilators in 100 days. An Associated Press analysis of federal data showed the Department of Health and Human Services was on track to exceed this goal as of mid-July, but because of a decrease in demand, the $3 billion initiative could actually lead to a surplus of ventilators. Pence also praised the administration for slowing the spread of the virus -- while daily cases are falling by at least 5 percent in 31 U.S. states, they are also rising by at least as much in more than a dozen states. The vice president repeated a claim previously made by Trump that Biden wants to end school choice. While Biden opposes using federal funding to pay for private school tuition, his platform supports public school choice. He also said that whereas Trump has pursued “energy independence” for the U.S., Biden would “abolish fossil fuels, end fracking,” and impose climate change policies that would hurt working families. Biden re-committed to ending fossil fuel subsidies last week after facing pressure from environmental groups, and has said he supports stopping new permits for fracking. He does not support a nationwide fracking ban.

WATCH: Sister Dede Byrne’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 3

Sister Dede Byrne spoke on the third night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 26, 2020. She retired as a colonel from the U.S. Army Medical Corps in 2009 and is the superior of the D.C. Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts. Byrne spoke of her opposition to abortion, saying, As a physician, I can say unequivocally life begins at conception. State-level debates on abortion have centered around when the heartbeat of a fetus can be detected, and some legislatures have passed laws that ban the procedure as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Byrne called Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris “the most anti-life presidential ticket ever,” adding that they “support the horrors of late-term abortion and infanticide.” Biden’s stance on abortion has evolved throughout his political career -- in 1973 he said that the Supreme Court went “too far” in deciding Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that legalized abortion nationwide, but he now supports codifying it into federal law. Harris has called for eliminating the Hyde Amendment -- which bans federal funding from being used for most abortions.

For Black Americans, the all-time low was in September of 2019.

GOP Holds Virtual 2020 National Republican Convention

Vice President Mike Pence will make the case for a second term for himself and President Donald Trump Wednesday, capping a night at the Republican National Convention designed to emphasize the military, law enforcement and public displays of patriotism.

Pence is scheduled to speak from Fort McHenry in Baltimore, the site of a battle in the War of 1812 that inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star Spangled Banner.” Trump formally accepts his party’s nomination on Thursday. As he has on the previous two nights of the convention, the president is also expected to be part of the program on Wednesday.

The vice president’s appearance will involve combat veterans, according to people who asked not to be identified because it is intended as a surprise for viewers, with imagery intended at least in part as criticism of professional athletes who kneel during the national anthem.

Pence will speak in optimistic tones “honoring what makes America great” and outline the accomplishments of the Trump administration compared with “platitudes” from Biden, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said on a call with reporters on Wednesday.

Republicans have sought to capitalize on U.S. cultural divides and present themselves as defenders of freedom, while portraying Democrats and nominee Joe Biden as socialists bent on trampling American values. Democrats painted Trump at their convention last week as an incompetent and corrupt chief executive who threatens democracy.

Murtaugh said Pence, who leads the administration’s coronavirus task force, will also defend the administration’s handing of the pandemic “despite, he will note, a media obsessed with whatever the day-to-day distractions are in the swamp in Washington D.C.” -- not acknowledging that Trump himself often causes such distractions.

Democrats have hammered Trump for reacting too slowly to the pandemic that has killed more than 179,000 Americans, saying it would disappear and failing to marshal a national response plan. Republicans largely avoided focusing on the virus during their convention until first lady Melania Trump spoke at length on Tuesday night with sympathy for victims, saying her husband “will not rest until he has done all he can to take care of everyone impacted.”

The theme of Wednesday night’s program is “land of heroes,” and among the scheduled speakers are Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw, a decorated U.S. Navy SEAL veteran, and retired Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg, national security adviser to the vice president. Richard Grenell, former acting Director of National Intelligence and U.S. ambassador to Germany, also is scheduled to speak.

Lara Trump Challenges President’s Public Image on RNC Convention Day 3

Lara Trump said on day 3 of the Republican National Convention (RNC) that the president’s public image doesn’t accurately convey his personality.

Who is Lara Trump? She is the wife of the president’s son Eric Trump.

“It didn’t surprise me when President Donald Trump appointed so many women in senior level positions in his administration,” says Lara Trump about her experience with her father-in-law, adding that the Trump family was different from what she expected.

“Any preconceived notion I had of this family disappeared immediately,” she said. “They were warm and caring, they were hard workers, and they were down to earth. They reminded me of my own family — they made me feel like I was home.”

Trump, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, said that since marrying into the family she has seen a different side of the president.

“What I learned about our president is different than what you might have heard,” she said. “I learned that he is a good man. That he loves his family. That he didn’t need this job.”

WATCH: Clarence Henderson’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 3

Clarence Henderson, civil rights activist and president of the North Carolina chapter of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, spoke on the third night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 26, 2020. Henderson praised Trump for providing funding to historically black colleges and universities and for signing criminal justice legislation that freed inmates, claiming that 91 percent of them were Black people. In 2018 Trump signed the First Step Act, one of the most significant pieces of legislation aimed at criminal justice reform in years. Among other things, the bill takes steps to ease mandatory minimum sentences under federal law and reduce the sentencing disparities retroactively for crack cocaine and powder cocaine that disproportionately affected Black communities. A U.S. Sentencing Commission report found that 91.3 percent of those who received sentencing reductions under this new provision were Black, but it did not necessarily release them from prison.
On HBCUS, last year Trump signed a bill to permanently provide $250 million a year to HBCUs and other institutions that serve large populations of minority students, after funding lapsed. The Congressional CARES Act, signed by Trump in March as a coronavirus relief effort, also provided about $1.4 billion in emergency funding to HBCUS and minority serving institutions.

WATCH: Richard Grenell’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 3

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell spoke on the third night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 26, 2020. Grenell criticized the Democrats for blaming “a global pandemic that started in China on President Trump.” Many believe Trump’s lack of action during the early spread, however, exacerbated the scope of the spread of the pandemic. He also said, “they still blame Russia for Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016,” even though the Special Counsel investigation found evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also accused former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden for launching surveillance efforts on the Trump campaign in 2016. A House Intelligence Committee investigation in 2017 found no evidence to support this claim. Similarly, Grenell accused Biden of requesting hidden information on Michael Flynn from intelligence officers three weeks before Trump's inauguration. Biden’s office made a lawful request to unmask an American’s name on classified information to better understand a report, and Flynn’s name happened to appear in the document. This request, which was made in January, after the inauguration took place, was logged under Biden's name, but could have been made by someone in his office, since requests are usually logged under the name of the senior official.
