US President, Donald Trump has turned a surprise opening-day appearance at his party’s scaled-down national convention into an opportunity to question the integrity of the upcoming election.

The US President warned his fellow Republicans their opponents may “steal” November’s election, as his party anointed him as their candidate.

The president, who was not scheduled to deliver his keynote convention address until later in the week, nevertheless made multiple public appearances throughout the first day of the convention.

“The only way they can take this election away from us is if this is a rigged election,” President Trump told hundreds of Republican delegates gathered in North Carolina, raising anew his unsupported concerns about Americans’ expected reliance on mail voting during the pandemic.
