The Republican National Convention has wrapped up in Cleveland. Last night, Donald Trump accepted his party’s nomination and gave a long speech focusing on the threats that face the country.

The convention aimed at unifying the Republican Party, but there was chaos when members of the #NeverTrump movement called for a roll call vote which would let them vote as they pleased rather than vote for Trump. Then Ted Cruz was booed when he refused to endorse him.

Here & Now's Robin Young and Meghna Chakrabarti look back at the convention with Rick Klein, political director at ABC News, and Sarah Wheaton, White House reporter for Politico.
