Exactly what the Republican National Convention will look like remains an open question, reports The New York Times' Michael M. Grynbaum and Annie Karni. "Two producers of The Apprentice, where Mr. Trump rose to TV stardom, are involved in the planning," The Times reports. "Sadoux Kim, a longtime deputy to the Apprentice creator Mark Burnett, is a lead consultant on the production. Mr. Kim once served as a Miss Universe judge when Mr. Trump owned the pageant. Chuck LaBella, a former NBC entertainment executive who helped produce The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump, is also on the payroll. Party officials say their convention — during which Mr. Trump is expected to speak every night in the 10 p.m. hour — will ultimately surpass the Democrats’ telethon-like show, which the president and his allies have repeatedly called 'dark,' depressing and thin on policy proposals." ALSO: President Trump and five family members (Melania, Ivanka, Donald Jr., Eric and Tiffany Trump) will be key speakers at the convention.
