CLEVELAND — Donald Trump made his second appearance in two nights Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, beaming via video feed from above the delegates assembled on the floor of the Quicken Loans Arena here after his nomination for president was formalized with a roll call.

“This stage of the presidential process has come to a close,” he said, speaking from Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Trump said he was proud to achieve “historic results” with his supporters, and referred to the general election fight ahead.

“We have to go all the way,” he said.

Presidential nominees typically wait in the wings until delivering their acceptance speech on the last night of the convention.

But the real estate magnate and former reality TV star also had an in-person speaking role Monday night when he introduced his wife, Melania, before her speech to the convention.
