But instead of focusing on the words coming out of his mouth, many Twitter users were focused on his eyes, with many wondering if he might have been on drugs.
Here’s some of what people were saying about his speech:
In fairness, this is the longest I have been able to watch without changing the channel.

Hey @DonaldJTrumpJr, what’s with the glassy, red eyes?

What’s wrong with @DonaldJTrumpJr ‘s eyes?? He’s either high or on the verge of crying. Also, didn’t he criticize Joe Biden for reading off a teleprompter? What the heck is he doing right now? 🤣🤣🤣 #RNCConvention2020

#Presidementia #TrumpDementiaSyndrome RNC Monday Night (15): Don Jr. was not well prepped for this nightmarish moment. This is shocking. He is loud, agitated, angry, with weepy eyes & signs of impairment different from his dangerously demented daddy. What’s wrong with him?

Don Jr clearly high as a kite, shouting through tears about how the radical left wants to cancel the founding fathers feels like a grim glimpse into his inevitable future run for office pic.twitter.com/Gtl311Wa3A

Dry your nose (and your eyes) Donald Trump, Jr.

I don't think Don Jr. gets the good cocaine. I think he buys off the street and sometimes it's mostly meth.

When you look in Don Jr’s eyes, you can see his drug dealer starin’ back at you.

Lindsey Graham is in ‘deep trouble’ as he focuses on doing Trump’s bidding: report
According to two polls out of South Carolina, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) is either trailing or barely hanging on with Senate seat on the line in November's election.
Forbes reports that Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison is trailing Graham by one point (45% to 44%) in a CBS news/YouGov poll of likely voters, and an internal poll from Harrison's campaign shows the incumbent Republican trailing 43% to 45%.
Republicans alarmed Trump may have given Biden a big assist before Tuesday’s debate: report
As the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden looms, Republican insiders are worried that Trump's attacks on the former vice president will come back to haunt him after the president and his campaign spent months portraying Biden as decrepit and not up to the job of leading the country.
According to a report from the New York Times, the Trump campaign's history of posting highly-edited videos on social media of Biden appearing to fall asleep or forget his words are about to blow up on Trump's team when Biden takes the stage and goes one-on-one with the president.
‘Terrifying’: CNN host panics after realizing Trump can ‘stay in office without actually winning the vote’
CNN host Fareed Zakaria expressed alarm on Sunday over President Donald Trump's ability to "stay in office without actually winning the vote."
"By declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, President Trump has agitated many who fear he will refuse to leave office even if he loses the November election and may even resort to violence," Zakaria said on his CNN program. "But the terrifying reality is that there are also mechanisms that are legal and constitutional that could enable Trump to stay in office without actually winning the vote."
The CNN host went on to explain that the U.S. electoral system "was not designed to be democratic," allowing states to choose any set of electors regardless of the popular vote.
