Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana watch with their families as the balloons fall during the final day of the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

President Trump will now accept the Republican presidential nomination in Jacksonville in August.
