The Trump campaign says it was looking for "non-conventional speakers... emphasizing real-world experience" for its convention next week.

The lineup includes an eclectic collection of celebrities, Trump family members and politicians. Noticeably absent from the list are any members of the Bush family, as well as the party's last two presidential nominees.
