Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Republican Party to Endorse Trump’s Wall Along U.S.-Mexico Border

HeadlineJul 12, 2016

This comes as the Republican Party is expected to formally endorse Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Members of the Republican National Convention platform committee successfully petitioned to have language calling for the wall added to the platform text Monday. The proposal has sparked significant opposition across the U.S. Experts have also cast doubt on the overall feasibility of Trump’s border wall. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is expected to name his running mate within the coming days, ahead of the Republican National Convention. He’s said to be considering Indiana Governor Mike Pence, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
