Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer addresses the virtual Republican National Convention on Aug. 25, 2020.

The GOP kicked off day two of the Republican National Convention with Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, who raved about President Donald Trump's record on tribal issues.

But Trump has been terrible for Native American people and tribes for years ― a fact you'd never know based on Tuesday night's spin.

"Our people have never been invited into the American Dream. For years, we've fought congressional battles with past congressmen and senators that were part of a broken system that ignored us," said Lizer. "That is, until President Trump took office."
