President Donald J. Trump delivers a speech accepting the nomination of the Republican Party for a second term in the White House in the 2020 election. Trump gave the address at the White House to close out the Republican National Convention.
Using the setting of the White House as part of the party convention, including using White House staff to make the festivities go off without a hitch, would likely constitute a violation of the Hatch Act, as many critics of Trump have pointed out.

Protesters gathered during the speech near Lafayette Park and Black Lives Matter Plaza on the North side of the White House grounds.
