Red meat for Trump's base dominates Night 2 of the Republican National Convention

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 10-11 p.m. hour.

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

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

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