Trump's Unconventional Convention Gets More Chaotic than Ever

Hosted by

Last night's introductory address by Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence has been completely overshadowed by outspoken hostility among Republicans. Texas Senator Ted Cruz used his prime time speech to infuriate Trump supporters by refusing to endorse the presidential nominee. Whatever Trump himself says tonight in a bid for unity, disputes over the "Soul of the Party" are bound to continue — win or lose in November. The management of the convention has raised questions about the potential staff in a Trump White House. In the meantime, Trump has told the New York Times he might reduce support for NATO allies — a sweeping change in decades of foreign policy.
