The Republican National Convention is just a week away, but there's still no official word on who take to the stage, according to NBC News, even though the presumptive presidential nominee has said he has a full lineup prepared. 

Despite this announcement, as of Monday no speaker list has been made public. ABC News reports that a few have been confirmed: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Those expected, but not confirmed, include former Trump rivals Dr. Ben Carson, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker from Georgia. Trump's three eldest children, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr., are also likely to have speaking roles.

Among those not attending the multi-day affair are former GOP presidential nominees Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Arizona Sen. John McCain, members of the Bush family —which means the only two living Republican former presidents are no-shows — and Ohio's own Gov. John Kasich, the last Trump rival to quit this year's campaign. Govs. Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Bruce Rauner of Illinois will be absent, as will South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, another GOP primary contender, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Texas Sen. John Cornyn.

Politico has a list of more than 50 prominent Republicans who won't be going. 

"It's not going to be a ho-hum lineup of the typical politicians," Ivanka Trump told NBC News over a week ago. "It's going to be a great combination of our great politicians, but also great American businessmen and women and leaders across industry and leaders across really all the sectors, from athletes to coaches and everything in between."

Trump also faces a possible coup, as CNN reports that anti-Trump delegates are still looking for ways to avoid casting ballots to nominate the divisive billionaire.
