Republican Convention Wrap-Up

Hosted by

Donald Trump's vision of America is a major departure from the traditional sunniness of the GOP. The Republican Party may be sharply divided, but delegates on the convention floor last night were enthusiastic about Trump's dark vision of contemporary America. After indulging in a bit of fear-mongering, Trump declared, "I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people that cannot defend themselves. Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it."

We get perspective from Tim Naftali, a former director of the Nixon Library who teaches history and public service at New York University, and from Walter Shapiro, a columnist for Roll Call and a lecturer at Yale University who is covering his tenth presidential campaign.
