Donald Trump accepts Republican presidential nomination, vows to 'restore safety' in America

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., speaks during the third day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016.

Earlier this week, former rival Ted Cruz was booed after he refused to endorse Mr Trump for the presidency. In this election, do the right thing and vote your conscience.

He also spoke about immigration and took direct aim at Hillary Clinton and her legacy: "This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: Death, destruction, terrorism and weakness".

It was the biggest night so far for the NY real estate mogul's campaign and final night of the 2016 Republican National Convention held at the Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland in the U.S. State of Ohio.

Co-host Pat Gray said, "And they know that's not Trump". "But Hillary Clinton's legacy does not have to be America's legacy".

"We are at a crossroads, where our first priority must be saving our nation", Falwell said, foreshadowing the somber tone of Trump's coming speech.

Trump said people have praised him for his "incredible" primary run but told his backers that "nothing's incredible unless I win".

Republicans, including Trump, have criticized the recent determination by FBI Director James Comey that Clinton shouldn't face charges.

During his lengthy address - one hour and 15 minutes - Trump said he would bring back law and order. The crowd responded with repeated ovations and chants like "build that wall!" and "U-S-A!"

Trump said he would add millions of new jobs and trillions in new wealth. Thursday - the night of Trump's speech and the last night of the convention - was the only night in which the arena was fully packed.

"America is better than Donald Trump".

"This is his chance to tell in his own words why he wants to be president, why he believes he is qualified to be president and what he plans to do if he is elected", Chen said.

It was an "artsy picture" of Melania Trump taken when she was a "really successful" model. "Then when I saw somebody tweeted a picture of Melania and a picture of Heidi, who I think, by the way, is a very nice woman and a very handsome woman".

"I never had anything to do with it.this was a magazine that frankly in many respects should be very respected, they got OJ [Simpson], they got [John] Edwards.if that was The New York Times they would have gotten Pulitzer Prizes for their reporting". In a departure from most of his previous speeches, the billionaire real estate investor and media personality largely stuck to the prepared remarks, which echoed the themes he has developed in over a year of campaigning for the nomination.

He said the governor will meet with Trump at some point but that may not happen until after the convention.

Donald Trump will vow to restore law and order to the United States if elected president, making his case for why Americans should choose him over Democrat Hillary Clinton in a speech accepting the Republican Party's nomination.

Trump then made a surprise appearance in his private box, glaring at the stage as Cruz departed. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told CNN that he "totally" disagrees with Trump's suggestion that US support could be conditional.

"I feel so bad", he joked. "They're so honest. They're such honorable people".

"All right, that was pretty well-orchestrated", he said.
