The Republican National Convention begins Monday in Cleveland, Ohio.

Security and safety are two words looking in Ohio and across the globe.

Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence appeared for their first interview together, just ahead of the opening of the convention.

How will they govern in touch times in a world seemingly spinning apart?

Our national correspondent, Jessica Ralston, is on this story from the Quicken Loans Center in Cleveland.

Trump alongside Pence appeared on 60 Minutes Sunday night, hammering home how tough they'll be on issues of safety and security.

In fact, the theme at the convention is to make America safe again.

Trump says he's the "law and order" candidate, the one who can restore America's strength here at home and abroad.

One of the first things trump says he'll do as president is declare war on ISIS and wipe the terror group off the face of the planet.

Pence says declining American power has aroused evil around the world, blaming President Barack Obama and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for creating "a lead from behind" strategy that gave rise to ISIS and the deadly terror attacks we are now seeing in places like France and the U.S.

The barricades are up around the arena in Cleveland and police say they are ready to handle all types of situations from lone wolves to violent protesters.

So far, what we have seen is mainly peaceful demonstrations.

We will also have complete live coverage from both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

Beginning Monday night, our parent company, Sinclair Broadcasting is holding a Your Voice Your Future: The GOP Convention Town Hall Meeting,

The town hall will be streaming live on and on mobile devices at 4:00 p.m.
