parties have been longing to hear, but none of us should think for one second that this will be easy. the outcome of this election depends on us. and how we contend with an incredible onslaught that's coming our way. you know, this won't be america's first glimpse at the clinton machine in action. as bernie sanders can tell you. and this time around, she'll have the press doing half her work for her. the good news is, it won't be nearly enough, not against the candidate whose captured the attention of the country the way donald trump has. on issue by issue, he and i will take our case to the voters, pointing out the failures of the
obama-clinton agenda and showing a better way. we will win the hearts and minds of the american people with an agenda for a stronger and more prosperous america. now, the establishment in washington, d.c., thinks it's only a narrow range of voters who are giving donald trump a serious look. but i can tell you firsthand, there's a lot of americans out there who feel like democrat politicians have taken them for granted. it's union members who don't want a president who promises to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. those miners want an american energy policy, and they know
that donald trump digs coal. it's african-americans who remember generations of hollow promises about safe streets and better schools and they know donald trump will fight for equal opportunity and he loves educational choice. and it's hispanic americans who respect the law, want jobs and opportunities for their families, who know that donald trump will uphold the law and get this economy moving for every american. you know, the party of lincoln was founded on equality of
opportunity. and during these difficult days, it will be our party and our agenda that opens the doors for every american to succeed and prosper in this land. you know, in so many ways the democratic party has abandoned those it used to protect. maybe they have become too entrenched in power, so comfortable at times that they lose patience with the normal legislative process. it's so much simpler to impose their values by executive order or court action. and make no mistake about it, hillary clinton has some big ideas along those lines too. as this election approaches, every american should know that while we're filling the
presidency for the next four years, this election will define the supreme court for the next 40. we all better think very carefully, very carefully about what this means for our constitution and limited government. elect hillary clinton and you better get used to being subject to unelected judges using unaccountable power to take unconstitutional actions. so let me say for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of the sanctity of life, for the sake of our second amendment, and for the sake of all our other god-given liberties, we must ensure that the next president appointing justices to the supreme court is donald trump. [ cheers and applause ]
and hillary clinton's record on foreign affairs gets even worse. you know, it was hillary clinton who helped undo all the gains of the troop surge. a staggering failure of judgment that set isis on the loose. it was hillary clinton who instigated the president's disastrous agreement with the radicals in iran, and it was hillary clinton who left americans in harm's way in benghazi and after four americans fell said what difference at this point does it make.
[ crowd chanting "lock her up" ] as the proud father of a united states marine, let me say from my heart, anyone who said that, anyone who did that should be disqualified for ever serving as commander in chief of the armed forces of the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] seven and a half years of barack obama and hillary clinton's policies have weakened america's place in the world. terrorist attacks at home and abroad, grim and heart-breaking
scenes from france just a few short days ago and the attempted coup in turkey, all attest to a world spinning apart. history teaches us that weakness arouses evil. hillary clinton and barack obama's foreign policy of leading from behind, moving red lines, feigning resets with russia and the rise, rule and reign of isis are a testament of this truth of history. we cannot have four more years apologizing to our enemies and abandoning our friends. america needs to be strong for the world to be safe and on the world stage, donald trump will lead from strength. [ cheers and applause ]
donald trump will rebuild our military and stand with our allies. donald trump will confront radical islamic terrorism and its source and destroy the enemies of our freedom. and if the world knows nothing else, it will know this, america stands with israel. [ applause ] you know, if you looked at the calendar this morning, you might have noticed the presidency of barack obama ends exactly six months from today.
[ cheers and applause ] [ crowd cheering "we like mike" ] and this much is certain, this much is certain of the obama years, they're not ending well. there seems to be so many things that divide us, so few great purposes that unite us as they once did. and it's at moments like this, moments when politics fail that
i believe we do well to remember that what unites us far exceeds anything that sets us apart in america. [ applause ] that we are as we have always been one nation, under god, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all. should i have the awesome privilege to serve as your vice president, i promise to keep faith with that conviction, to pray daily for a wise and discerning heart, for who is
able to govern this great people of yours without it. my fellow americans, i believe we have come to another rendezvous with destiny, and i have faith. faith in the boundless capacity of the american people and faith that god can still heal our land. [ applause ] but we have a choice to make. this is another time for choosing. if you want a president who will protect this nation, confront radical islamic terrorism and rid the world of isis, if you want a president who will
restore law and order to this country and give law enforcement the support and resources they deserve, if you want a president who will cut taxes, grow our economy and squeeze every nickel out of the federal bureaucracy, if you want a president who will build strong borders and enforce our laws, and if you want a president who will upend the status quo in washington, d.c., and appoint justices to the supreme court who will uphold the constitution, we have but one choice, and that man is ready. this team is ready. our party is ready. and when we elect donald trump, the 45th president of the united states, together we will make america great again.
[ cheers and applause ] thank you. and god bless you. and god bless the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] >> governor mike pence delivering his acceptance speech here at the republican national convention in cleveland. donald trump in the wings there applauding as the governor absorbs the love in the room. >> i have to say that ending kind of fell flat there a little bit. i'm missing the rush to the stage. >> trump did make up for it by giving him an air kiss right there, chuck. >> we have not, by the way, seen the traditional clasp of arms held high. >> you know what, that's what
this is about. these guys are outsiders. i think trump might not even know that's what they're supposed to do. they're just getting to know each other. i think the chemistry will come. >> and yet they separate here and donald trump goes back in the wings, mike pence -- >> have you ever seen this, tom? >> what is this? trump just walked out on him. >> we saw this during the initial rollout, if you recall. >> here comes pence's family. but where's trump? >> the governor's -- the governor's speech was largely that of a traditional politician. he took his shots at hillary clinton, but in a perhaps loftier less caustic way than we've heard from any other speakers in this convention. but i've got a couple of slack-jawed colleagues here. >> look, this convention is a mess. let's not -- i don't -- it's now donald trump. it's all on him tomorrow night now. he has got a bigger job -- look,
mike pence's speech got totally lost. ted cruz has stolen the night for better or for worse. and his speech was perfectly fine, but it doesn't exactly electrify -- it didn't electrify the crowd. >> let me bring tom in here because, tom, you just gave a look like what is happening here. >> i've never seen anything quite like that where trump comes out, gives him a perfunctory kind of thumbs up and then walks off the stage. the traditional way of doing it is grabbing the hand, holding it up, walking back and forth together. even nixon with eisenhower grabbed him and said don't we have a great president. startled eisenhower. but at the same time that was the lingering thing. i do think -- >> i can't believe -- >> here's the thing that's actually shocking about it. so you say these are outsiders, someone should have briefed them. hey, give everyone the moment, stand together, let them witness, let them see the ticket. >> savannah, but donald trump doesn't have a campaign to tell
him what he's supposed to do. >> i know, but donald trump if anything is a great communicator. he knows about image. >> and he's a great performer and he should know it's about television images. >> are these men going to have a true working relationship or is this a marriage of convenience? >> i can tell you somebody very close to trump said to me the over/under on joint appearances between those two between now and november is less than a dozen. and i will take the under. >> on the other hand, ladies and gentlemen, we represent conventional wisdom. donald trump represents a completely different way of doing things, and it's worked for him every step of the way. do not forget that. i mean we're playing by different rules. >> and once again tonight, i will not ask you what the headline tomorrow, there's too many to talk about. we'll be here all night. clearly a lot of news coming out of this night three of the convention, including the moment that ted cruz was essentially booed out of this arena.
savannah, you've got an interview tomorrow with ivanka trump. that's going to do it for our coverage and a very dramatic and memorable night, night three of this republican national convention. for chuck todd, savannah guthrie, nicolle wallace, tom brokaw and our entire nbc news team, i'm lester holt saying good night from cleveland.
ted cruz as he spoke without throwing his support to trump. i'm jim rosenfield. the republicans were hoping for a show of unity tonight. not that show of disunity that erupted here on the floor of this convention. indiana governor mike pence did his part to try to pull everything back together. he formally accepted the republican vice presidential nomination just moments ago, while heaping praise on donald trump, and at times, pence even brought a little levity to a tense evening. >> you have nominated a man for president who never quits. who never backs down. a fighter. a winner. until now, he's had to do it all by himself against all odds, but this week, with this united party, he's got back up, and on november 8th, i know we will elect donald trump to be the 45th president of the united states of america. [cheers and applause]
>> then trump made a brief appearance in the arena on the stage there with pence. the republican nominee sat with his family during his son eric's case, came just minutes after ted cruz was booed off the stage without endorsing trump. >> liein' ted. >> earlier this year, the glove came off. but tonight -- >> i want to congratulate donald trump on winning the nomination last night. [cheers and applause] >> a somewhat different tone. >> vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedoms and to be faithful to the constitution. >> the convention floor erupts. cruz acknowledges their cries. >> i appreciate the enthusiasm of the new york delegation. >> but moves on, not explicitly endorsing trump, and later, trump himself appears, somewhat
upstaging his former political rival. >> we will unite the party. we will unite the country by standing together for shared values, by standing for liberty. god bless each and every one of you. and god bless the united states of america. >> and with that, he was off the stage to that loud chorus of boos. my colleague is down on the convention floor. she was with the delegates as cruz was speaking. you heard those boos thousand dollars a-- loud and clear. what are delegates saying? >> a lot of them not happy. they really wanted to hear a full endorsement here. we were down there on the floor. we heard people yelling at cruz on the stage. and then things sort of developed into this low roar of
boos. from texas to the rnc stage, ted cruz at first got cheers as he talked about freedom and republican values. >> we did our best for their future and our country. [cheers and applause] >> trump delegates came in with optimism he'd endorse his rival. do you want to hear a full endorsement? >> i absolutely do want to hear a full endorsement. our party needs unification and we have one common goal, that is to get a republican elected, and that person's going to be donald j. trump. >> but then? not the support they were looking for. members of the pennsylvania delegation among those on their feet. what did you think of that speech? >> i thought that speech was a sham to the conservative party.
>> brubaker had a different take. ted cruz got booed. what do you think about that? >> that was an embarrassing debacle. i'm disappointed. he came as close as he was going to come. whether that's right or wrong, so be it, but this redefines the idea of sore winning. >> well, it was not enough for the delegates. the boos continued as ted cruz walked off of that stage. now, as we were trying to get reaction afterwards, a delegate from hawaii came right up to us and wanted to tell us that she thought ted cruz could have been a hero tonight and wasn't. as for new jersey chris christie, he called this speech selfish. live in cleveland, i'm lauren make, nbc 10 news.
>> yeah, chris christie reminding cruz, you signed that pledge. all 17 candidates did. and you have not upheld that pledge. as for mike penceç and his speech, hillary clinton was tweeting about it, the campaign was at any rate, calling pence one of the most anti-lgbt candidates or politicians in this country, running for vice president. the tweet also pointed to pence's record, fighting against abortion rights and planned parent hood, that from the clinton campaign tonight. in reaction to mike pence's speech we just heard. today we also heard a new twist in the melania trump speech saga. someone is now take being responsibility for writing that speech. we'll have all the details on that coming up in a few minutes, but for now, let's send it back to you, jacquelyn, in philadelphia. >> another active day in cleveland. we'll see you again soon. but first, we're following a
developing store in north philadelphia. a 16-year-old boy is being treated after being shot twice during a robbery. the victim had been visiting his girlfriend when he was robbed about 90 minutes ago at woodstock street. he was the second teenager shot in philadelphia in just a matter of hours. >> a 15-year-old is in critical condition after gunfire erupted in northeast philly. denise nakano was live. we're learning what may have sparked that violence. >> reporter: that's right. police are telling me the violence was sparked bit victim accidently bumping into the shooter, and now the 15-year-old victim is recovering after going through surgery for a bullet lodged in his stomach. police could find no blood, no crime scene, just witness accounts what they saw and heard. >> i started screamscreaming, aa gunshot. >> reporter: police transported
the 15-year-old victim to the hospital. they found him collapsed on the sidewalk, feet away from where they were seen arguing the night before. >> this stems from an argument that started yesterday and it resulted in a shooting. >> reporter: neighbors say they shielded their children from the gunfire that happened around 5:15. >> i ran into the house, had all the kids on the floor. >> reporter: police got a search warrant for a house on griscom where they believe a young woman ran to hide the gun. that woman is said to be uncooperative. they are confident they will identify the shooter who was known to the victim and some in the neighborhood. >> it's a shame that these things got to happen at an early age with these kids. >> reporter: now i just checked with investigators. they're still interviewing witnesses as well as waiting for a search warrant. they're also searching for a second suspect present during
the shooting. moeantime more breaking new in german town. a 14 year old boy is in serious condition after being hit by a septa bus. it's not clear what caused the accident. and skyforce 10 over the schuylkill river. a person involved in a car crash ran from police and jumped into the police near hollow road and river road just before 11:00 tonight. police are searching the water trying to find this person. new at 11:00, an arrest in a love triangle. police have caught the man accused of killing a romantic of rival. police are interviewing the woman, but she has not been charged. officers say she was at the center of a love triangle that ended with gould killing edward
dabinski in bucks county. the fraternal order of police slams hillary clinton. while they say they're being disrespected. plus you have to see this video. good samaritans stepped in to save a driver who ran off a road. what made him lose control in the first place? and we have more heat and humid coming into the forecast. i'll show you what it means for the weekend weather and how hot it will feel, coming up next.
>> vote for the candidate who can't be bought, purchased, or feared from the past that is right and just and true. [cheers and applause] quite frankly, friends, vote for the one candidate who does not need this job. >> now to another member of the trump family, the fall out continues, stretching into day three over the melania trump speech that she gave right here on monday night. a campaign staffer now admitting that she plagiarized the passage from michelle obama. >> you work hard for what you want in life. >> you work hard for what you want in life. >> today, meredith macgyver, a writer, took responsibility for
the speech. she took the blame issuing this statement that read in part, quote, over the phone, she, melania, read me passages from mrs. obama's speech as examples. i wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. this is my mistake, she said, and i feel terrible for the chaos i have caused melania and the trumps as well as to mrs. obama. no harm was meant. end quote. now macguyver said she offered her resignation to the trumps, but she said mr. trump did not accept it. donald trump saying people make innocent mistakes. trump even tweeting out today that melania's speech got more publicity than any in the history of politics. so trying to put a positive spin on it. now nbc 10 is partnering with fact check.org. you can tap the nbc 10 app to
check with the fact checkers are saying. we will also fact check during the dnc in philadelphia next week. donald trump will be making his big speech. we will be right here to bring it to you and have reaction to it coming up tomorrow night. for now, let's send it back to you in philadelphia. keith and jacquelyn. >> a lot of people speculating over what will happen at that speech tomorrow night. thank you. a chaotic rnc protest a few blocks from quicken loans arena. 17 people were arrested, kr including two for assault over a police officer. a fight probibroke out over bur of the flag. protesters demanded more transparency about the dnc.
