How the Never Trump movement failed at the GOP convention

National political conventions are usually simple coronation ceremonies for a party’s nominee. But this year was different. The Republican convention opened on Monday with a floor fight launched by a group of anti-Trump delegates who tried to make a last ditch effort to stop Donald Trump’s nomination.

VICE News was on the convention floor with one of the leaders of the anti-Trump movement, Beau Correll, as he tried, and failed, one last time to stop his party from electing Trump.

White Nationalist leader claims support among Trump delegates

Donald Trump’s candidacy has invigorated a new generation of the far right and white nationalists. In May, it was revealed that a Trump delegate from California was a white nationalist leader, which caused the Trump campaign to quickly drop him as a delegate.

But apparently, that was not the only Trump delegate who is also an open white nationalist. VICE News met up with one of the faces of this new movement, Matt Heimbech, in Cleveland, Ohio during the Republican National Convention.

Not only is Heimbech himself a Trump supporter, he says that he personally knows several other members of his group who are Trump delegates and currently on the convention floor.

Chaos in Cleveland: ‘What doesn’t destroy Trump makes him stronger’

The Republican National Convention is currently underway in the U.S. city of Cleveland to set a nominee for the White House. However, the only headliner and participant of the event is Donald Trump, and he again seems to be at the center of a scandal. A number of delegates tried to change the Convention’s rules to derail his nomination – however, GOP officials rejected the call, sparking anger. We spoke to media analyst Lionel, who says attempts to stop Trump’s rise only highlight the failings of the Republican party.

Republican ticket goes to Trump? ‘People feel he’s giving voice to those unheard’

Donald Trump is set to become the official presidential nominee of the Republican Party at its national convention set to kick off in the city of Cleveland on Monday. During the race for the nomination, the billionaire appeared to be waging a war on political correctness, and it now appears he may have won the battle, as RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports.

Keiser Report: US, Mexico & walls (E939)

In this special episode of the 2016 Summer Solutions series of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy talk to John Ackerman, professor, columnist and the Mexican Law Review’s editor-in-chief, about the economic relationship between Mexico and the United States. Ackerman has a plan to cut off the flow of funds from America to the Mexican government and he also responds to Donald Trump’s wall. Like Trump, however, Ackerman believes Nafta has been devastating… both to the American worker and to the population in Mexico. They conclude with solutions to the consequences of neoliberal capitalism and dodgy trade deals.

In this first of the 2016 Summer Solutions series of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the biggest topics they see needing a ‘solution’. As the world looks on with fear at the prospect of a Trump presidency, they propose solutions to ‘make America great again’. Maybe better media? Better infrastructure? More political parties and less of the lesser of two evils? In the second half they talk to Professor Steve Keen about his ideas on how to make America great again. They discuss the role of ‘trade deals’ such as Nafta and the TTIP as well as the role of rising debt in the decline of living standards.

The Movement That’s Fueling Donald Trump’s White Nationalist Supporters (HBO)

​Right-wing groups that promote themselves as “white advocates” have been emboldened by Donald Trump’s candidacy. They say the presumptive Republican nominee is instinctively receptive to many of their ideas.

Far from the rough-and-tumble bigots of the KKK, these clean-cut white nationalists in suits and ties nonetheless hold extreme views on — and believe Trump’s candidacy helps their cause.

VICE News went to an annual conference held by the white nationalist magazine American Renaissance to talk to some of the intellectual leaders behind this growing movement.

Donald Trump applauds Brits for taking their country back

On Friday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump touched down in Western Scotland. Ostensibly, he had traveled to Britain to relaunch Trump Turnberry, one of two luxury golf courses that he owns in the country. But his timing was conspicuous: Trump’s visit came hours after Britain voted to leave the European Union, an extraordinary move that Donald Trump had previously expressed support for.

At a raucous press conference, Trump told Brits that they were right to “take their country back,” and drew parallels between the political forces driving both Brexit and his presidential run.

Outside the golf course, a small band of protesters gathered for an anti-Trump demonstration. They worry about the global spread of Trump-style, right-wing populism.

The Schulz Brexit breakdown – Defeat for Obama, opportunity for Trump

Ed Schultz from RT America talks about US reaction to Brexit vote result. US have ‘too much at stake… too much history’ with UK to break their ‘special relationship’. Brexit means political defeat for Obama who invested so much in TTIP – sole reason US wanted UK to stay in EU.
Trump, being ‘very timid, very reserved’ in his reaction, sees it as a ‘clean slate’, an opportunity for new trade deal with UK.

Shell-Shocked: Ukraine’s Trauma

It’s been two years since pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine broke away from the rest of the country, triggering a war that has killed more than 9,000 people, displaced a million civilians, and left entire towns and villages in ruins.

Ukraine’s government was wholly unprepared for the conflict, and its armed forces had been hollowed out by years of mismanagement even before the fighting began. As a result, Kiev has relied on tens of thousands of inexperienced volunteers to fight the brutal civil war. The country’s healthcare system had little experience dealing with the range of physical and psychological injuries sustained by soldiers and civilians. Once demobilized, soldiers are eligible for a number of benefits, but only if they can obtain their official veteran status. With the process slow and bureaucratic, many have been left struggling to deal with the traumatic aftermath of the conflict.

With no clear end in sight to the fighting, VICE News traveled to the country to investigate the war’s impact on soldiers and civilians, and to see how volunteer groups are stepping up to help.

Note: VICE News wanted to also see how the trauma of the war was being handled by the separatist authorities of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, but we were denied access.

As Florida prepares to vote, campaigns are turning their attention to senior citizens and their concerns. This Tuesday’s primary awards all delegates to a single candidate, meaning the Sunshine State could either make a Trump nomination all but inevitable, or put the breaks on his momentum.

Before Tuesday’s primary, VICE News correspondent Danny Gold meets Russ Vitt, the leader of the group ‘Bikers for Bernie,’ who’s rallying support in the biker community for the democratic candidate.

Trump’s Guide To Dealing With Protesters

Watch “America’s Election 2016: Immigrant Iowa” – http://bit.ly/1TB9jTz

Donald Trump’s campaign rallies have gained notoriety following instances of violence from both Secret Service agents and supporters alike. But the threat of chokeholds and punches hasn’t stopped immigrant activist Kenia Calderon from protesting against Trump and other candidates.

The number of Latinos in Iowa has doubled in the last decade, but they’re not just flocking to Des Moines and other urban centers. Immigration has radically transformed the state’s rural heartland, which was once lily-white. Fueled by the meatpacking industry’s demand for cheap labor, small towns like Storm Lake now have schools with student bodies that are 82 percent non-white.

During the Iowa Caucuses, VICE News traveled to Marshalltown to attend a packed Trump rally and talk to Iowans about immigration. With Republican candidates calling for ramped-up deportations and closed borders, young undocumented activist Kenia Calderon has made it her mission to include immigrant rights in the political conversation.

Trump’s Faithful Televangelists (Extra Scene from ‘Trump Carolina’)

Watch “Trump Carolina” – http://bit.ly/24t5KUj

Evangelical Christians helped propel Donald Trump to victory in the South Carolina GOP primary last Saturday. Trump came in with 34 percent of the evangelical vote, beating both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who often cite their Christian backgrounds on the campaign trail.

Though Trump’s strong evangelical support in South Carolina came as a surprise to many political observers, VICE News found Trump gaining ground with these voters as we traveled across South Carolina’s conservative Upstate region.

Mike Murdock, a prominent Texas televangelist, surprised a crowd of thousands when he announced his support for Trump at a rally in Greenville. At the same rally, South Carolina pastor and televangelist Mark Burns opened the event with a prayer and told us why Trump was the best choice for the evangelical community.

America’s Election 2016: Trump Carolina

Donald Trump is projected to win the South Carolina primary by an even greater margin than he won New Hampshire, but to guarantee victory he’ll need to woo voters in South Carolina’s Upstate region, which has the highest voter turnout in the state.

Trump’s rhetoric about free trade and protectionism has resonated with voters across the US, and it’s free trade that’s blamed for decimating many once-prosperous local economies in the Upstate region of South Carolina, leaving people, feeling ignored and angry.

VICE News travels to the Upstate region of South Carolina to find out why Trump is a favorite with voters.

The Lonely Trump Supporter

In spite of his weak showing at the Iowa caucus, Donald Trump has a loyal supporter in Alec Bognar. Bognar stumped for Trump in advance of the Iowa caucus in hopes of swaying his fellow students on the very liberal, pro-Bernie Drake University campus in Des Moines. VICE News sat down with Bognar to find out what it’s like to be a lonely Trump supporter.

America’s Election 2016: Immigrant Iowa

The Iowa caucuses are the first major contest in the race for the American presidency. In the weeks leading up to caucus night, candidates descend on the state to shake hands, kiss babies, and woo supporters. While the caucuses don’t always signal which candidates will go on to win their party’s nomination, they do set the tone for the race going forward. And in this election cycle, the immigration rhetoric in Iowa has been uniquely harsh.

The number of Latinos in Iowa has doubled in the last decade, but they’re not just flocking to Des Moines and other urban centers. Immigration has radically transformed the state’s rural heartland, which was once lily-white. Fueled by the meatpacking industry’s demand for cheap labor, small towns like Storm Lake now have schools with student bodies that are 82 percent non-white.
