WASHINGTON, KOMPAS.com – President Donald Trump will use the Republican National Convention to excite its base ahead of the most divisive presidential election in decades.

Part of the event's spectacle includes launching political grenades and using real fireworks.

This week, the Democrats ran their own convention virtually where incumbent Joe Biden accepted his nomination from US democrats.

The virtual convention shows how the 2020 President Election is already deep in untested territory.

The Republican Party will take it even further during the four-day event which starts Monday and climaxes Thursday with Trump accepting his nomination for a second term.

Rather than go online or seek an alternate venue, Trump will give his speech from the White House itself — an act of bravado that stretches ethics rules and, while legal, tramples over presidential etiquette.

He has justified his choice as the most practical, cost-effective measure after Covid-19 forced cancelation of Republican plans for a traditional convention with big crowds in North Carolina.

As Trump says, he already lives in the White House.
