Washington (AP) — The most talked-about event of the weekend was the Republican Party convention, with Trump winning the party nomination.

It was also the first time in more than a decade that Democrats won the White House.

The event was a political party-wide coronation.

Trump beat both major-party nominees in the popular vote by nearly 2 million votes, the second-biggest win in modern history.

Trump has claimed to have won the popular-vote race since June 7.

Trump is scheduled to speak in full at the convention on Friday evening, and there is expected to be plenty of boos.

Trump’s speech will be capped by a lengthy speech from former Vice President Joe Biden, who is likely to say, “We must fight this evil together, or we will die.”

Biden will then go out on a national tour of battleground states and to address the convention.

Trump will be there.

There were also more surprises at the Republican convention, including the selection of former Pennsylvania Gov.

Tom Corbett as vice chairman of the convention, a decision that drew protests and was widely seen as a rejection of the popularly elected president.

The former governor, who was a leading voice of the anti-Trump resistance in his home state, said he supported the Republican nominee and said the party’s platform was his.

“I believe that this convention will be a celebration of our great nation and our people,” Corbett said.

“I believe in Donald Trump.

I believe in our people and our values.”

Corbett is the latest in a long line of Republican governors who have been drawn into the Trump-Biden feud.

Corbett won re-election in 2010 with 58 percent of the vote, but Trump’s re-nomination was overturned on appeal after the Supreme Court struck down the state’s voter ID law, which the state has since been trying to repeal.

Trump had lost the state to Democrat Katie McGinty in the 2016 election.

Warren, a self-described socialist, has been a key player in the anti–Trump resistance.

She told the convention that Trump was a “dangerous man” who should not be elected president and was not a conservative.

“We need to defeat this man, not only in this election but for decades to come,” Warren said.

Trump, who campaigned with Warren during the 2016 campaign, said the nomination would be a “disaster” for the party.

“The Democrats are going to lose, they are going a lot of votes.

The Republicans are going in a very good direction,” Trump said.”

But the Democrats have done very well with women and the young people.

They’ve done very, very well.”

The speech also included some unexpected twists.

Clinton, a former first lady, took questions from reporters after Biden spoke and, in a brief moment of candor, called Trump’s remarks “offensive.”

“I hope I get a chance to answer the question, but I will not do it tonight,” Clinton said.

Biden’s remarks were cut short by a reporter who was holding up the microphone for an audience member.
