Trump, The Art of the Lead

From July 18 to 21, Cleveland is helding the 2016 Republican National Convention, in an intense level of security. The city, whose centre is under restriction, with a 3.3-mile security zone around the Quickens Loans Arena, gathers 2 400 republican members, 50 000 guests and 5 000 members of order forces.

Beside the official designation of Donald Trump as a candidat for the presidential election and Mike Pence, his running mate for Vice Presidency, the Republican National Convention also has to adopt the party platform, and is a tribune «to help the American people understand more about Donald Trump the man, not just the candidate», said his campaign manager Paul Manafort.

The notable absence of former presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush and primary candidates Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio could have foretell a heated convention and a definitively divided party. But M. Trump, as he does since he announced his candidacy, has set the pace and muzzled his opponents. He also broached the subjects of insecurity and immigration, the key themes of his run for the White House.

With the designation, next week, of the Democrat ticket, the two candidates will be in the home straight of the United-State presidential election.
