Welcome to Cleveland. I’m here on the ground in this mid-western U.S. city to capture the interesting, behind the scenes, and nuance of the Republican National Convention. Twitter:@elizabeth_shell
The fourth and final day of the Republican National Convention was themed “Make America One Again.” We asked supporters and detractors what they thought of Donald Trump’s message.

What do delegates think of today’s Republican National Convention theme: Make America First Again? We asked that, and a bonus: If you could have a drink with nominee Donald Trump, what would it be? We spoke with delegates from New York, Michigan, American Samoa, and a couple from Texas.

“Politics has become so polarized and so hateful in the last 20 years. I wanted to do something to actively counteract that.” – Megan Browne, who posed nude for an art installation by Spencer Tunick outside the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. She’s 50, the mother of twins, and believes fiercely in equality.

Just one day before the official start of the a Republican National Convention, about 100 women gathered at dawn on a grassy bank of the Cuyahoga River. When the sun had risen high enough to shine over Cleveland’s downtown skyscrapers, they disrobed, holding large round mirrors overhead, reflecting the sun.
They were part of an art installation by New York artist Spencer Tunick: “Everything She Says Means Everything.” The women faced the Quicken Loans Arena, where on Thursday Donald Trump is expected to be nominated as the Republican’s nominee for president.
“I have two daughters—9 and 11—and I want them to grow up in a progressive world with equal rights and equal pay and better treatment for women, and I feel like the 100 women lighting up the sky of Cleveland will send this ray of knowledge onto the cityscape,” Tunick told Esquire.
