The final night of the Republican National Convention focused heavily on the importance of law and order, and ended with an operatic rendition of Ave Maria and patriotic hymns on the South Lawn of the White House.
President Donald Trump accepted the Republican Party's nomination for the presidency in a 70-minute speech that touched on the majority of his achievements during his first term, and criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for being on the "wrong side of history" throughout his political career.
"In the left's backward view, they do not see America as the most free, just, and exceptional nation on earth," said Trump, speaking to a crowd on the White House lawn.
"Instead they see a wicked nation that must be punished for its sins. Our opponents say that redemption for you can only come from giving power to them. This is a tired anthem spoken by every repressive movement throughout history," he added.
