CLEVELAND, United States—Donald Trump told the Republican National Convention on Tuesday that he would win the White House in November, saying he was “so proud” to be their nominee for US president.

“This is a movement. But we have to go all the way. I am so proud to be your nominee for president,” he told delegates by video link.
