Other speakers include senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, who on Sunday said she would leave that role at the end of the month, and former NFL safety Jack Brewer, who was charged with insider trading by the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier in August.

The event starts at 8:30 p.m. ET. CNBC.com will livestream the convention. 

C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC and PBS will show the full 2½ hours of the convention each night, according to The New York Times. Fox News, CBS, ABC and NBC will show the 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. hour.

The four-day Republican convention, which is being held for the most part virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, has already featured remarks from first lady Melania Trump, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. 

Many of the events have been held or taped at the White House and other federal properties even as critics complain that the president is using the power of his office for political gain. 

Trump himself, who will formally accept the Republican nomination on Thursday, has made multiple appearances throughout the convention.
