    The Soundtrack of Donald Trump

    The Soundtrack of Donald Trump

    Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” has become former President Donald J. Trump’s unofficial theme music on the campaign trail. Here at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, the song was performed live by none other than Mr. Greenwood himself, as Mr. Trump walked into the arena on Monday.

    The anthem, released in 1984, is essentially a song about togetherness and the diversity of the United States. And it’s now become tied to a candidate who has often represented division and chaos.

    As Mr. Trump is set to deliver the culminating address at the convention today with a newfound message of unity, we explore that message — through the song that has become his soundtrack.

    We talk to Republicans, including Mr. Greenwood, about what defines American values and whether those values are reflected in the candidacy of Mr. Trump.

    On today’s episode:
    Lee Greenwood, country music star

    They Lost to Trump. Now They’re All In.

    They Lost to Trump. Now They’re All In.

    On the second day of the Republican National Convention, a collection of Donald Trump’s former challengers took the stage. There were people who ran against him in 2016 — like Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Marco Rubio. And people who just challenged him this year — Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy.

    No matter how fervently, or recently, they had criticized him, all voiced their support for him and emphasized a message of unity.

    For analysis of Night 2 of the R.N.C., and this parade of Trump rivals turned boosters, Astead is joined by his Times Audio colleague Michael Barbaro, host of “The Daily.”

    With J.D. Vance and a Bandaged Ear, Trump Gets His Party Started

    With J.D. Vance and a Bandaged Ear, Trump Gets His Party Started

    Republicans had a big day on Monday. Donald Trump picked J.D. Vance as his running mate. Two days after surviving an assassination attempt, he officially became his party’s presidential nominee. And the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee got underway, with a festive mood among the delegates.

    The Run-Up is here in Milwaukee for the occasion. In special episodes this week, we’ll tell you what we’re seeing — and what that tells us about Trump’s Republican Party.

    To kick things off, Jess Bidgood, who writes the On Politics newsletter, joined Astead to analyze key moments from Night 1.

    ‘I’m Just Really Glad That Trump’s OK’

    ‘I’m Just Really Glad That Trump’s OK’

    You’ve seen the image by now: Former President Donald J. Trump has blood running down the side of his face. He’s being escorted off his rally’s stage by the Secret Service, and he pauses to look at the crowd, his fist proudly in the air.

    It’s too soon to know how the attempt on his life on Saturday in Pennsylvania will affect the outcome of the race. But Trump’s allies have already made the shock of the assassination attempt, and the violence, part of a clear political message.

    To hear them tell it, Trump and his party are under attack.

    This sense of persecution has long been core to Trump’s message. And the events of the weekend will only amplify that.

    Today, as the Republican National Convention gets underway, we’re digging into that message with the Trump supporters who most embody it. And we’re doing so from their unlikely headquarters, where they gather every evening in Washington D.C.: outside the D.C. Jail.

    Project 2025, Suddenly Everywhere, Explained

    Project 2025, Suddenly Everywhere, Explained

    President Biden is telling people to Google it. Former president Donald J. Trump is distancing himself from it. Even the actress Taraji P. Henson talked about it onstage at the B.E.T. Awards.

    Project 2025. It’s a blueprint for an incoming conservative president — presumably Donald Trump — spearheaded by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

    And now it is everywhere in this tumultuous moment of the 2024 presidential race.

    But what is it? Is it a guide to a possible second Trump administration? And why are Democrats seizing on it now, as Biden struggles to quiet doubts about his ability to defeat Trump? This week, we’re working through those questions.

    On today’s episode:
    Jonathan Swan, who covers politics and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for The New York Times.

    Representative Ro Khanna, Democrat of California.

    A Divided America Agrees: We Deserve Better Than This

    A Divided America Agrees: We Deserve Better Than This

    The latest national poll from The New York Times and Siena College shows former President Donald J. Trump leading President Biden by nine percentage points among registered voters — a pretty big shift in his direction in the week since the presidential debate.

    It has become clear in the past week that there is no obvious path to replacing Mr. Biden as the Democratic Party’s nominee. But there is a strong desire among Americans for something different.

    We heard that directly from voters we met last week in Kenosha, Wis., at a gathering of a group called Braver Angels. It’s a nonpartisan organization that finds common ground across political divisions, and it proved a perfect focus group after the debate.
    We asked these deeply engaged citizens, who had chosen to spend their free time debating policy and politics, how they were feeling about their options for president in November.

    Their perspective reinforced the gap that this unique political moment has exposed between voters and party leaders.

    The questions are: Has Mr. Biden’s debate performance made the continuation of his campaign untenable? And what, if anything, should happen next?
