Here is Who Will Be Speaking at Donald Trump's Convention

NYT has obtained the list but notes Trump is still inviting people, his aides have said. And the people who spoke about his list of speakers cautioned that it could still grow:

Night 1: A Benghazi focus, followed by border patrol agents and  Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son was killed by an undocumented immigrant. Senator Cotton, Rudy  Giuliani, Melania Trump, Senator Joni . Ernst and others.

Night 2: A focus on the economy: Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.; Asa Hutchinson, the governor of Arkansas; Michael Mukasey, the former United States attorney general; Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a vice-presidential possibility; Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader; Tiffany Trump; Donald Trump Jr. and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Night 3:Florida’s attorney general, Pam Bondi; Ms.  Eileen Collins, the first woman to command a space shuttle mission; Newt Gingrich; Ted Cruz; Eric Trump; Ms. Gulbis; and the nominee for vice president.

Night 4: Tim Tebow; Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee; Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma; Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman; Gov. Rick Scott of Florida; Silicon Vallry billionaire Peter Thiel;  Thomas J. Barrack Jr., a private-equity real estate investor.; Ivanka Trump; Donald J. Trump.


  1. How very unexciting. Just the same Ol same Ol BS, and they are all going to say the same Ol BS I've been hearing them say since I first took notice of politics when I was about 13.

  2. Wait! I dont see Walter Block on that list. How can that be? Donald must be told about this oversight.

  3. With the absence of "libertarianish" Rand, this list is more neocon than Romney's convention. I believe Clint Eastwood criticized some of our wars in his speech. So unless there's an anti-war side to Tim Tebow we don't know about yet, this is just a typical war hawk GOP convention.
