Walk right in the front door Trump.

It will help the voters bond with Trump and the next First Family.
It’s his show! He has spent 55 million dollars of his own money, he can do whatever he want to do.

Then Trump is told to unite the party. Trump makes peace with Preibus and others, nominates Pence, but NeverTrumpers refuse to allow unity.
Trump never was the problem.
It’s actually an AP article.
For those still looking for that final reason to vote Trump (like any more reason is needed beyond he’s NOT Hillary)...
Hottest First Lady EVAH!
Taking the “not Hillary” logic a step further, the alternative is the impeached corrupt rapist as First Dude.
You make the call.
how DARE trump use his beautiful, vibrant (female) wife in politics! He is only doing this because she has a vagina!
Reagan went to the convention before the final night.
Surprise? It’s been reported for a week.
