RNC Day 1: Make America Safe Again In Photos

Team GOP - July 20, 2016

Republicans from all 55 states and territories filed into Quicken Loans Arena for the opening night of the 2016 Republican National Convention. Our theme of the night focused on Making America Safe Again.

The night was full of impassioned speeches dedicated to making the lives of everyday Americans safer. Senator Joni Ernst challenged us to be champions for our Veterans. Rudy Giuliani’s strong support of law enforcement fired up the crowd.

And no one will be able to forget Donald Trump’s epic stage entrance to introduce his wife, Melania Trump. Finally, Melania’s keynote was a strong testament to her husband’s character and passion for his family and our country.

If you missed anything from Day 1, you can catch all the moments here.

Below are some of our favorite photos from Day One!
