DENVER – Donald Trump announced Friday that his wife and children will speak at the Republican National Convention where he is set to officially become the GOP nominee.

Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit here, Trump said his wife Melania and his children are “all going to be speaking” at the convention.

Trump’s three eldest children — Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. — are all top executives at the Trump Organization and have taken on key roles as informal advisers to their father’s presidential campaign and frequently join Trump on stage at rallies around the country.

Trump also has two younger children: Tiffany, who just graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and Baron, who is 10.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment on which of Trump’s children will speak at the convention or how prominent their speaking slots will be.

The Trump campaign has yet to announce keynote speakers or prominent speaking slots for the convention, which is just over two weeks away.

Trump has vowed to add a sprinkling of show business to make the RNC convention stand out from past ones.

He has also promised to include a “winners’ night” which will feature top sports figures and other “winners,” instead of the typical slate packed mostly with politicians.
