The Republicans will begin their 2020 Cобрание Monday, August 24th. Each night will feature Trump in some way, shape, or form. An exact schedule of speakers has yet to be made official but here are some of their hard hitting, up and coming ‘stars’ believed to speak. My Russian is quite rusty, as in non-existant, so please excuse me if I mangled it.

- Mark and Patricia McCloskey are set to participate in the convention, too — the McCloskeys garnered national attention in June for brandishing their guns at Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home in St. Louis.
