Live: Republicans kick off 2020 convention

The 2020 Republican National Convention kicks off Monday, with President Trump formally accepting the GOP presidential nomination a week after Joe Biden officially became the Democratic nominee. The four-day convention — which was originally supposed to take place in-person in Jacksonville, Fla., before the coronavirus crisis struck — will now be held virtually and in limited-capacity venues in Charlotte, N.C., and at the White House. Eschewing political norms, Trump is expected to speak in primetime each night. Other speakers on night one include Sen. Tim Scott, Reps. Steve Scalise, Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan, former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Charlie Kirk, Donald Trump Jr., and Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who pointed guns at Black Lives Matter protesters as they walked past their home.

Tune in here beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
