What is the Republican Platform?

Tune in for this Morning Joe conversation between veteran columnist Mike Barnicle and conservative commentator Charlie Sykes about President Donald J. Trump’s acceptance of the GOP nomination and a message from Mark and Patricia McCloskey – the St. Louis homeowners who pointed guns at protesters earlier this summer – this week at the Republican National Convention. “We saw a social arsonist—the President of the United States—who sets these little bonfires, stands back and watches them grow. And we also heard during the week that there is really no Republican platform this week announced at their convention; but, my sense of it is, and I’ll ask if you agree with it: There was a Republican platform and it was articulated by the McCloskeys—the two McCloskeys who stood there, looked into the TV camera and said, ‘Black people are coming to destroy the suburbs, to take your house and ruin your incomes and they’re doing it because the Democrats are going to let them do it’,” asks Barnicle.
