August 28, 2020: US President Donald Trump on Thursday accepted the Republican Party's nomination for the U.S. presidency in a primetime acceptance speech from the White House, talking up his record over the past four years and attacking his Democratic rival Joe Biden.



Trump, who broke convention by giving a campaign speech from the White House on a podium displaying the presidential seal, repeatedly cast his own vision against his perception of Democratic rival Joe Biden's plans, describing the November 3 vote as "the most important election in the history of our country."





The former celebrity realestate developer declared himself all that stands between Americans and the disaster he claimed his "weak" Democratic rival would bring if he wins on November 3. "This election will decide whether we save the American Dream," Trump said. ""Joe Biden is not a savior of America's soul. He's the destroyer of America's jobs and given the chance, he'll be the destroyer of American greatness."





The 74-year-old claimed a Biden administration would "completely dismantle and destroy" the American way of life. "America is not a land cloaked in darkness," he added in a rebuttal of Biden's speech at the Democratic convention, "America is the torch that enlightens the entire world." Trump spoke from the White House's South Lawn, which he had transformed into a flashy event center for the final night of the Republican convention.





Biden responded on Twitter, asking: "When Donald Trump says tonight you won't be safe in Joe Biden's America, look around and ask yourself: How safe do you feel in Donald Trump's America?"
