In a Republican National Convention press conference Tuesday morning, officials outlined the themes and speakers of the day and faced contentious questions from reporters about Melania Trump's speech among other things. 

If day one's theme was Make America Safe Again, then day two is slated to be Make America Work Again. Politicos and celebrities alike will take the stage to voice support for Donald Trump in his quest for the presidency. 

Topics of the day will range from how real Americans are hurting to why you should fear a Clinton presidency; and of course, the Supreme Court, Second Amendment rights and homeland security will be touched on. 

A spate of senators will take the stage to discuss economic growth. Some of these speakers include Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. 

Donald Trump will phone in from a remote location to add to the political circus. At some point today his nomination will be made official. 

During a question and answer period with the press, the Convention official fielded pointed questions about Melania Trump's speech Monday night. The official avoided saying whether or not anyone would be fired over the alleged plagiarism of her speech from a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama. He claimed the themes Melania spoke on were personal to her, but could be personal to many, including the First Lady. He said criticisms of the speech were politically tinged and alleged that whenever Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, she attacks her person and character.
