The Heat: Republican National Convention

The Heat

President Donald Trump promised an uplifting and optimistic vision of the United States for this week’s Republican National Convention. But the first night, at least, had a very different tone. Speakers portrayed their rivals in the Democratic Party – led by candidate Joe Biden – as a menace to the country. From Charlotte, North Carolina, where the convention is being held, Philip Crowther reports.
