CLEVELAND (AP) - Painting a bleak picture of America's future, Republicans promised a new era of security with Donald Trump as president as they opened a four-day convention against the backdrop of an unsettling summer and deep party divisions. The doom-and-gloom message of the night was offset by a warm and personal address by the candidate's wife, Melania Trump, who made a rare turn in the political spotlight to show a kinder, gentler side of her brash husband. "If you want someone to fight for you and your country, I can assure you, he is the guy," Mrs. Trump said in her highest profile appearance of the presidential campaign.
