Tonight's speaker list for the Republican National Convention

The 13-month build-up to Donald J. Trump's pursuit of the White House takes its next big step this evening.

That's when Trump is expected to accept the nomination for president at the fourth and final day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Tonight's theme, "Make America One Again," will focus on unifying the country, according to the GOP's convention website.

"Donald Trump will move our country beyond the divisive identity politics that have been holding us back by restoring leadership, building trust, and focusing on our shared love of country and our common goal of making America great again," the agenda item for Thursday stated.

Earlier today, the full text of Trump's speech was revealed by Politico.com. One of the central themes will be restoring "law and order" to the nation.

Trump's oldest daughter, Ivanka, will provide the warmup for the New York billionaire, who is the last scheduled speaker of the night.
