House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy delivered remarks on Thursday night during the Republican National Convention.
KEVIN MCCARTHY: As Americans, we carve our own destiny. As Americans, we look forward, not backward. Our ancestors braved the unknown. They built this nation brick by brick. They lifted up millions from poverty, hunger, and disease. They vanquished fascism and communism. A great nation because of great people.
And no one has done more to protect and advance it than President Trump.
As Republicans, we are proud to stand with him and to work for you. Together we built the greatest economy the world has ever seen. And we will do it again. We confronted China head-on, tore up bad trade deals and made better ones, supported our men and women in uniform, and took out the world's top terrorist, achieved energy independence, defended the sanctity of life, and restored law and order at the border.
But as every American knows, we face an invisible enemy that we didn't ask for nor invite. But we will defeat it. We will defeat it, because America is where innovation happens. And we are developing a vaccine in record time. We will defeat it, because President Trump unleashed a Marshall Plan for Main Street that put hardworking taxpayers back on their feet.
