As RNC Begins, Protesters From Both Sides Meet In Cleveland

Day one of the Republican National Convention begins in Cleveland today.

Demonstrations are planned in favor of — and against — Donald Trump, who will accept the party’s nomination for president. Cleveland police say they are ready for potential violence, but there is renewed tension in the city after yesterday’s police shootings in Baton Rouge.

Here & Now‘s  Peter O’Dowd walks us through the scenes of the convention’s first day.
