Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton argued that Donald Trump would be a strong commander-in-chief who “calls the enemy by its name” in a prime-time speech at the Republican convention Monday.
The freshman Republican, a rising star in conservative circles, mentioned Trump’s name only once in the brief speech.
“This isn’t much to ask for, but eight years without it is more than enough,” he said. “So I say again: In a Trump-Pence administration and with a Republican Congress, help is on the way.”
