Paddy Gower meets Donald Trump - again

Newshub political editor Patrick Gower has had his third brush with controversial Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump - though the 70-year-old, for once, didn't have a whole lot to say.

Trump was clearly in a hurry as he arrived in Cleveland for the fourth day of the Republican National Convention, and didn't have time to stop for a chat - but Paddy was still able to squeeze one response out of him.

When asked how big his speech was going to be, the business mogul replied with his trademark confidence.

"Pretty big, pretty good."

Gower has previously had an equally as brief experience with Donald Trump earlier this year after meeting with the The Apprentice star in February.

And despite seeing her stepmother Melania land herself in trouble for a speech that was at least partially plagiarised from Michelle Obama, Trump's daughter Ivanka was clearly anticipating receiving less criticism for her own address.

Asked how she was feeling about her speech, she told Paddy she was "excited".
