GOP to kick off convention; Trump to make surprise visit

GOP to kick off convention; Trump to make surprise visit

Thoroughly defeated in meetings last week, the delegates hoping to upend Donald Trump's nomination have one last chance as the full Republican National Convention kicks off on Monday.

"Frankly, that impact will probably help the campaign", Manafort said at a Bloomberg Politics breakfast with journalists in Cleveland on the opening day of the convention. Asked whether Mr. Trump has any support at all among African Americans, Mr. Manafort said: "We understand that the community's leadership is with the Democratic Party, but Mr. Trump's message about law and order and jobs will resonate with them a lot".

Trump's campaign events have at times prompted violent outbursts, some of them racially charged.

Several hundred Donald Trump supporters gathered Monday for the first major pro-Trump rally in the convention city.

From a precious view of the podium to a prime-time speaking slot, Alabama will have a strong influence on the 2016 Republican national convention, which gets underway today in Cleveland.

Monday will also be when Trump's wife, Melania, addresses the convention - it turns out the nominee-in-waiting will be there to introduce her.

Even with the liberal media ready to pounce on Trump for any mistakes he might make on Thursday, he will still come out a big victor as the Trump-loaded affair will certainly attract higher ratings than past RNC conventions, and provide a stark contrast to what Hillary and company will deliver next week.

Yet the delegate rebellion is likely to underline how divisive Trump has been.

The convention will open at 1 p.m. EDT Monday.

The voice votes occurred even though earlier in the afternoon, dissident delegates submitted petitions from a majority of delegates from what they said were enough states to force a roll call vote under party rules.

Speakers include RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Ivanka Trump.

But with Trump and Clinton, the challenge in the 2016 campaign is how to re-educate voters on two candidates they have known well for decades and just do not like. But Kasich says he doesn't have that authority.

Trump would gain the nomination at a time of crisis and tumult at home and overseas, underscored Sunday by the deadly shooting of three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The co-chair, State Rep. John Cabello, a Rockford police detective now on leave, commented at an Illinois Republican Party breakfast at the convention.

Last spring, Trump repeatedly blasted the 2012 GOP convention as "the single most boring" he'd ever seen.

But making the case for Trump on national security will be retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who was under consideration for the vice presidential nomination, as well as several lawmakers with military backgrounds, including Sen.

On Sunday, the president of the police union asking Ohio Gov. John Kasich to suspend the law allowing gun owners to carry firearms in plain sight.

The U.K. rejection of "faceless bureaucrats" sends a signal favorable to Trump about his odds against Clinton, Manafort said. The convention then rolled into a mix of patriotism, music and routine business before the anti-Trump outburst.

According to NBC News, over the course of the convention 2,470 delegates, 2,302 alternate delegates, thousands of media professionals, and many, many Republicans will take over downtown Cleveland, Ohio, and their proceedings will take over the nation's airwaves.

A spate of race-tinged shootings - including the killing of three police officers in Louisiana Sunday - has put the country on edge.
