The speakers continue, but the convention wraps down. The arena floor is mostly empty as the closing prayer is given.
Next up, retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
Flynn, who was briefly floated as a possible vice presidential candidate to Donald Trump, said, "I don't know how you follow an act like Melania Trump, who is going to be the next first lady of the United States of America."
"The primary season is behind us. Let's all come together for a national campaign like no other," she says, to big applause from the crowd. She ends with, "Ladies and gentlemen, Donald J. Trump is ready to serve as the next president of the United States." She exits to the sounds of Queen and "We are the champions."
The crowd in the convention center are clearly moved by Melania Trump's speech. At one point, she says, “You have all been very kind to Donald and me."
