Introducing her father on stage, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka said  her father is the “People’s nominee”.

Donald Trump, accepting the nomination of GOP, said, he would to be a “voice” for working Americans.

“I will restore law and order and to confound elites and doubters by winning the White House in November,” Donald Trump said.

“My father is colour blind and gender neutral. One of the reasons why he is a successful entrepreneur is because he listens to everyone. My father turns vision into reality,” she added.

Ivanka said her father has always fought for country and recognises talent.

Ivanka, who is expected to introduce her father for speech, said Donald Trump would improve labour laws and childcare.

“He would fight for equal pay and I would fight with him,” she said.

This week’s Republican National Convention has seen drama ranging from the plagiarised speech his wife delivered and the way the campaign prolonged the episode to Ted Cruz’s shocking address on Wednesday in which he refused to endorse Trump and encouraged Americans to vote their conscience, CNN reported.

Ted Cruz, Donald Trump’s former rival, was booed off the Republican top stage on Wednesday night after he withheld his endorsement of the New York billionaire as the nominee.

“Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution,” Ted Cruz said at the party’s convention, instead of urging Republicans to rally behind Trump.

The language, which echoed statements from the ‘Never Trump’ movement, triggered boos and chants of “Trump! Trump!” from the audience.

Cruz left the stage putting on a brave face, wrapping up his remarks and thanking the audience while Trump entered the venue and gave his formal rival a thumbs-up, sarcastically venting his anger.

On the final day of Cruz’s campaign in May, he charged Trump with being “a pathological liar”, “a narcissist” and “utterly immoral”, the Guardian reported.

So far the RNC has been all about heated attacks on Hillary Clinton. Trump has yet to show how he can appeal to the broader general election audience, particularly women, by proving that he would be a reliable president.
