ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Cleveland officials say they are "prepared" for the Republican National Convention. At a news conference on Tuesday (May 31), the mayor said the city is ready and officials have done their "due diligence" to keep people safe. Security officials say the same group tasked with providing security for the Papal visit and the nuclear summit will also be traveling to Cleveland to provide security for the convention. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has drawn intense protests at campaign stops this year. At times the demonstrations have resulted in violence between his supporters and opponents. Officials in Cleveland are gearing up for the thousands of demonstrators expected outside the convention, scheduled from July 18 to 21. The event will culminate with the party anointing the billionaire real estate developer as its nominee for the November general election.
