"Thursday night I'm doing it live," Trump said, referring to his speech next week when he formally accepts his party's nomination at the online Republican convention.

Trump said he has chosen the White House South Lawn as the location — a controversial decision given that presidents are required to separate their campaigning from taxpayer-funded governing.

President of cowardice

In its effort to appeal to middle-of-the-road voters and frustrated Republicans, the convention featured a video highlighting the unlikely friendship between Biden and late Republican senator John McCain, narrated by his widow Cindy McCain.

Republican former secretary of state Colin Powell also delivered videotaped remarks in which he endorsed Biden.

Tuesday's keynote was notable in that it featured 16 mostly young current and former elected Democrats seen as upcoming leaders including Stacey Abrams, a woman of color who narrowly lost the Georgia governor's race in 2018.

"Faced with a president of cowardice, Joe Biden is a man of proven courage who will restore our moral compass by confronting our challenges, not by hiding from them or undermining our elections to keep his job," Abrams said.

Former president Obama will speak on Wednesday along with 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Biden's running mate, Senator Kamala Harris of California.
