ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called his wife, Melania, an amazing mother and woman, when he made his first appearance at the Republican National Convention on Monday night. Trump appeared on the first night of the gathering in Cleveland, Ohio to introduce his wife, Melania, to the crowd. The convention's opening night featured a string of emotional speakers attacking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's record as secretary of state under President Barack Obama, arguing she had made Americans vulnerable to Islamist militancy. Trump appeared just hours after the meeting erupted into raucous divisions when anti-Trump delegates tried and failed to force a vote opposing his candidacy. The turmoil threatened efforts by the Trump campaign to show the party had united behind the businessman-turned-politician and distracted from the day's theme of "Make America Safe Again," meant to depict Trump as a strong leader capable of shielding the country from violence.
