Melania Trump, the wife of presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump is the keynote speaker at the Republican Convention in Cleveland tonight. A native of Sevnica, Slovenia, she will be the first, president's wife since Louisa Adams who was not born in America if her husband is elected. Mr. am Mrs. Trump have a nine-year-old son together. Mrs. Trump speaks five languages and has been a professional model. She also studied architecture. Some of her critics are concerned thatshe wil bring shame to the role of FLOTUS. The Trumps downplayed photos of her that circulated online that resembled soft porn. Mr. Trump will introduce his wife tonight.
The so called "law and order candidate"does not have the support of many mainline GOP leaders. The typical party icons that show up for formality sake are not present, nor are some of his key former opponents, Ohio governor Kasich and Florida senator Marco Rubio. Ex-rivals Ben Carson and Chris Christie, who remains y his side despite not being selected as hs running mate, are both scheduel to speak.
Donald Trump was called out last week for naming football player TIm Tebow in the roll out fo speakers. Tebow posted a video to Facebook saying he had not made a commitment to speak at the convention. "I just got back from the Philippines and wake up this morning to find out I'm speaking at the Republican National Convention. It's amazing how fast rumors fly and that's exactly what it is, a rumor."
