WATCH: President Donald Trump’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 4

President Donald Trump said this year’s election is the most important election in the history of our country in his address on the final night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 27, 2020. He opened his remarks by acknowledging the Americans affected by Hurricane Laura, as well as the efforts of state and national officials, saying, We are one national family.

In addressing the novel coronavirus pandemic, Trump pledged that the United States would produce a vaccine before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner, though top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has said many times publicly that timeline is more likely 12 to 18 months. He also made dubious claims about the United States’ testing prowess, including that, “We developed, from scratch, the largest and most advanced testing system in the world. The U.S. has conducted the most amount of tests of any other single country, but it has struggled with capacity, and recently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed the guidance for testing, meaning that fewer people will be eligible. The U.S. also has had the most fatalities in the world from the virus.

Trump used his speech to attack his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, several times. He made a joke about Biden kissing blue collar workers, an allusion to criticism that Biden has crossed boundaries by being overly affectionate to women over the years, though Trump has been accused of sexual assault by over a dozen women. He suggested that Biden supports cutting police funding, but the Democratic candidate has rejected that idea, saying he wants to root out “unethical cops.” Trump falsely claimed that Biden has promised to abolish the production of American oil, coal, shale, and natural gas. Biden's plan would end new leases for fracking on federal lands, but does not ban those energy sources. Trump warned of Biden’s plan to raise taxes “on almost all American families,” but the increase would come over a decade and nearly all the tax increases would be paid by the highest-income households. Trump also misconstrued Biden’s immigration proposals, sayings, “He promised to end national security travel bans from Jihadist nations, and he pledged to increase refugee admissions by 700 percent.” Biden has pledged to end Trump's travel ban affecting Muslim-majority nations on his first day in the White House, and has promised to increase refugee admissions which have dropped to record lows during Trump’s presidency. And while Biden has said he would focus on deporting undocumented immigrants convicted of felonies, Trump said his competitor would suspend “all removals of illegal aliens.”

Trump also exaggerated his own record on several points, including building the Southern border wall, securing energy independence for the U.S., his negotiations to make NATO partners pay more, and taking actions to cut patients’ prescription drug costs. He repeated a claim that he has done more for the African American community than any president since Abraham Lincoln, though experts say President Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, gets that honor. Trump touted achieving “the first Middle East peace deal in 25 years,” but the deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was rejected by Palestinian leaders. He said Republicans would always protect patients with pre-existing conditions, though that requirement is already mandated by the Affordable Care Act, which the Trump administration has repeatedly tried to dismantle.

Trump ended the more than hourlong address by invoking the history of American pioneers to reach any goal and achieve every ambition, and predicting that the U.S. will reach stunning new heights by making America safer, stronger and greater than ever before.

WATCH: Ivanka Trump’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 4

Ivanka Trump, a businesswoman and adviser to the president, introduced her father as the Republican nominee on the final night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 27, 2020. Ivanka credited the president with leading nationwide shutdowns across the U.S. at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in order to save lives, but these decisions were largely driven by state governors and other local leaders. Trump once indicated he was more concerned about the economy than the virus, saying the cure for COVID-19 cannot be worse than the problem itself. Ivanka touted the state of the economy under the president’s tenure, saying, “I watched him take the strongest, most inclusive economy in our lifetime; the lowest unemployment in half a century, and the highest wage increase for working families in decades.” While U.S. unemployment was at its lowest in 50 years prior to COVID-19, average hourly wage growth has been higher in decades prior, and the wealth gap has continued to expand since Trump took office. Ivanka claimed that through Republican tax cuts, “our child tax credit put over $2,000 into the pockets of 40 million American families.” This tax credit has been in place since 1997 and benefited 35 million American families under Obama. She said not a single Democrat voted to increase the Child Tax Credit in 2017, but nine Senate Democrats voted for a change to a tax bill that year that would have done so. She also touted legislation that will expand family leave to millions of Americans this October, but this only applies to federal workers -- the majority of U.S. workers still do not have paid family leave. Finally, Trump said her father “rewrote history” by negotiating a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, although the deal has been sharply criticized by Palestinian leaders.

WATCH: President Trump's acceptance speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention

Facing a national moment fraught with racial turmoil and a deadly pandemic, President Donald Trump accepted his party's renomination on a massive White House South Lawn stage Thursday night, boasting of helping African Americans and defying his own administration's pandemic guidelines to address a tightly packed, largely maskless crowd.

As troubles churned outside the gates, Trump painted an optimistic vision of America’s future, including an eventual triumph over the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 180,000 people, left millions unemployed and rewritten the rules of society. But that brighter horizon can only be secured, Trump asserted, if he defeats Democrat Joe Biden.

Trailing Biden in opinion polls, he blistered the former vice president's record and even questioned his love of America.

“We have spent the last four years reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years, Trump said.

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani’s full speech at the Republican National Convention | 2020 RNC Night 4

Former New York City mayor and Trump lawyer Rudy Guliani spoke on the final night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 27, 2020. Giuliani spoke of rising crime in American urban areas, claiming that in New York City, murders, shootings and violent crime are increasing at percentages unheard of in the past. New York has seen a significant increase in the rate of violent crime in the last year, but the sheer number of homicides remains far lower than during Giuliani's tenure as mayor. In light of the national protests for racial justice, ignited by the death of George Floyd, Giuliani claimed that the left-wing of the Democratic Party is just waiting to execute their pro-criminal, anti-police policies. Democrats in Congress have instead proposed legislation aimed at fighting racial bias in policing and tracking misconduct in the force. He alleged that Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa hijacked the protests into vicious, brutal riots. But an Associated Press analysis of court records and social media accounts found there was no evidence to that claim. Giuliani also sought to connect the murders of three children -- LeGend Taliferro, Brandon Hendricks and Davell Gardner, Jr. -- to the protests, but police have not made any connection to the unrest.
