President Donald Trumps campaign released the list of Republican National Convention speakers for this week.

“Over four nights, President Trumps 2020 Convention will honor the great American story, the American people that have written it, and how President Donald J. Trumps Make America Great Again agenda has empowered them to succeed,” the campaign said.

It said the RNC will stream live on various platforms this week for four nights.

Nikki Haley, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, Turning Point USA chief Charlie Kirk, Donald Trump Jr., Republican congressional candidate Kim Klacik, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, and others are scheduled to speak on Monday. The McCloskeys were seen in viral footage armed with guns as Black Lives Matter protesters marched near their homes in St. Louis.

Some of the speakers on Tuesday include First Lady Melania Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Eric Trump, Nicholas Sandmann, and more.

Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller on Sunday said on “Meet the Press” that President Trump is expected to speak on all four nights. However, its not clear if he will be delivering live remarks every night.

Miller said the GOP will present an “optimistic and upbeat convention this week” that is in contrast with the “massive grievance fest” during Democratic National Convention.
