protest. done a lot of reports on the security. so how tense did things get today? >> reporter: well i think there was a fair amount of tension out there but i is have to say both sides behaved pretty well. if that's the right term for it. the protesters were largely peaceful. there was some vitter al. bile spilled out there on the street but no blood we can tell. police seemed like they have things in control. we learned from the police chief calvin wl jumps here in cleveland they are newly purchasing -- have recently purchased bicycles for the use of crowd control they seemed to pretty well with them. the bicycles cep the protesters in the street, off the sidewalks, away from buildings. they were able to use those bicycles assort of moveable barriers. they hang on to the bike, walk forward slowly, ordering folks to move back. that seemed to work pretty well. fall all, it was a successful rally in the sense that folks got to make their voices heard without any real violence in terms of property damage or
injuries. so that was some good news. you mentioned before, lucy, about the unity or lack thereof. >> yeah. >> we saw it on the floor this morning. we saw donald trump himself and of course his top cam paper chief paul man any forward doing big-time criticism of john kasich the very popular ohio governor. of course, former candidate in this race. that did not go over real well with some of the hormion folks here. they did not think that was a very presidential very diplomatic thing to do when unity is the key. you probably know a lot of folk not here at this particular convention. >> oh yeah. >> the last two candidates obviously the last two presidents both the bushes. they're not here. and so a hole lost folks not here. some of them coming in for specific criticism but the message of unity clearly hasn't sung in for everybody at least not yet. >> john mccain also not there, of course. donald trump had some harsh words for him i think a year ago today. bruce, overall we saw bedlam there on the convention floor. what's the climate like now? do
they tamp down those anti trump folks and very trump folks? >> reporter: yeah, it's not clear we're hearing words tonight that they are not giving up the ghost so to speak the never trump votes. but it is probably fair to say it is a relatively small minority of the overall group. we often hear from folks there's a thousand of us on one side of the issue and 150 on the other side make a lot of noise you and the media cover it out of proportion tots importance. that maybe the case here. but clearly when you look at that video this afternoon and you look at the fee, the folks up on the stage trying to keep the cats coralled as we like to say, the look on the one guy's face was very clear. how did i lose the room? that was a look of concern. that this is not the optics they wander and sure enough, at least many of the early headlines were not about milania trump. not about unity. they were about chaos on the convention floor. that's not message you want basically at these convention lucy as you know you've got four
nights to build a narrative each day you want to win that story line and it's not so clear that the republican party and donald trump won today not as big as they would have wanted. >> donald was saying he wanted to produce this big time as we might all recall. bruce gordon thank you very much live in cleveland tonight. it will be a big day tomorrow. get off to bed. he'll be reporting all week. thank you very much. rnc is in full swing. we're just one week from the d dnc. how businesses are gearing up for all the excitement. and some republicans who were once members of the never trump campaign are doing a hard hard course correction tonight. what they're doing now they're trying to convince you that donald trump deserves your vote. ♪ >> live look at cleveland as we near the end of day one of the republican national convention. ♪
