Republican National Convention 2016 live updates: Trump kids, Chris Christie speak

Two of Donald Trump's five children stood before the crowd at the Republican National Convention Tuesday and spoke about what it is like growing up with the billionaire as a dad.

Donald Trump Jr., Trump's oldest child, and Tiffany Trump, Trump's youngest daughter, told the audience at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland that while Trump is a buisness man and, now, the official nominee of the Republican party, to them first, he is a supporting, caring father.

"He's always helped me be the best version of myself," Tiffany Trump said of her father.

Other speakers included Dr. Ben Carson, who competed against Trump in the Republican primaries, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who said "Democracy is a series of choices. We Republicans have made our choice," referring to the fact that Trump had been officially nominated by the party earlier in the evening.

New Jersey Gov.  Chris Christie also spoke Tuesday night. He asked the crowd to serve as a jury for Hillary Clinton as he listed foreign and domestic policy decisions that he said showed she was unfit to be president.

We will be live blogging the Republican convention again on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Join us Wednesday night at 6:45 p.m. ET  as the convention gets under way.
