Matt Katz | July 19, 2016 | Katz on Christie

A stirring open of the national anthem gave way to attacks on Hillary Clinton and illegal immigrants during the first night of the Republican National Convention.  After more than two hours, Donald Trump walked onto the stage and introduced his wife, Melania, who then assured the crowd they would bring love and kindness to the White House. Listen to a quick debrief from WNYC reporters Matt Katz and Andrea Bernstein on the night’s speeches and the scene in Cleveland.
