For months Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been calling for a ban on Muslims entering the United States. Since he has risen to prominence, civil rights groups have cited increasing attacks and threats against Muslims in America, often against women wearing headscarves. Muslim groups are now campaigning to register a million new voters in a bid to keep Trump out of the White House. But some American Muslims will vote for Trump. Ac...

In a scene few would have predicted 12 or even six months ago, real estate mogul Donald Trump formally accepted the Republican presidential nomination. In an hour-and-15-minute speech, Trump warned the nation was facing an imminent crisis at home and abroad, and that he alone was qualified to solve it. Trump’s speech included so many factual inaccuracies that The Washington Post called it "a compendium of doomsday stats that fall apart upon close...

As Indiana Governor Mike Pence accepts the Republican nomination for vice president, we look at how the religious right will respond to the man who was their "dream candidate" in 2012. "In one fell swoop, he strengthens his connections to religious right leaders and to the Koch brothers’ network," says our guest Peter Montgomery, senior fellow at People for the American Way.

On Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz dominated the headlines when he refused to endorse Donald Trump during his prime-time speech at the Republican National Convention. Cruz is not the only prominent Republican to have withheld support for Trump. Many of the party’s most prominent members didn’t even show up. Democracy Now! headed to the convention floor to find out who made it to the convention and who didn’t.

Immigration has been a common theme throughout the first two nights of the Republican National Convention. On Monday, speakers included two mothers whose sons were killed by undocumented immigrants. But a new report by the American Immigration Council, that won’t likely be cited by any speakers at this year’s Republican National Convention, finds immigrants are less likely than the native-born to engage in criminal behavior and that higher immigr...

CodePink’s Medea Benjamin disrupted Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention by holding up a banner reading "Build bridges, not walls!" Her protest diverted cameras away from Trump’s speech. Benjamin was removed after the disruption and says she was later interviewed by the Secret Service. Democracy Now! spoke to her on the street afterwards.

Protests continued outside the RNC on Wednesday as hundreds of people gathered to erect a "Wall Against Trump," blocking the entrance to the arena with a massive cloth banner painted like a wall. The Republican Party has formally endorsed Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in the party platform.

I wanna get opinions from you lefties, do you guys agree that having Michael Browns mother speak next week at the democratic convention is overtly racist?. Especially since it was proven that "hands up don't shoot " never happened.. Combined with the fact that none of the family members of recently slain officers were not asked to speak

Before he teamed up with Donald Trump, Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence had a history as a conservative talk radio host in which he often slammed officials caught in cheating scandals. We play an excerpt from his show and speak with Politico reporter Darren Samuelsohn, who reported on the show in his recent article, "The Old Cassettes That Explain Mike Pence." We also speak with Jeff Sharlet, associate professor of literary journal...

As Indiana Governor Mike Pence is added to the Republican ticket as Donald Trump’s running mate, we look at his religious right-wing track record as governor of Indiana and, before then, as an Indiana congressman. "The enemy, to them, is secularism," says guest Jeff Sharlet of Pence’s faith-based supporters. "They want a God-led government." Sharlet is the author several books, including "C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy...

The Republican Party has officially adopted Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in its official party platform. The new platform states: "The border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic." In response, immigrant rights activists have decided to build a wall of their own here in Cleveland around the Republican National Convention. Mi...
