Coming up on today's show:
- By failing to officially endorse Donald Trump, Texas Senator Ted Cruz won a lot of boos from the crowd at the 2016 Republican National Convention. As Trump takes the stage tonight, will he be able to repair this divided party? For answers, we turn to Takeaway Washington Correspondent Todd Zwillich, who is in Cleveland and watching the convention unfold.
- How have geopolitical shifts changed the Republican Party's official platform? Steve Clemons, editor-at-large for The Atlantic, discusses the foreign policy strategy of a potential Trump administration.
- The Murdoch family has given Roger Ailes, the chairman and CEO of Fox News, a deadline of August 1st to leave the network or be fired. The move comes in response to allegations that Ailes sexually harassed some of Fox's biggest stars. Gabriel Sherman, national affairs editor for New York magazine and author of "The Loudest Voice in the Room: How the Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News - and Divided A Country," has the details.
- Unilever announced Wednesday that it would pay $1 billion for the Dollar Shave Club, a California-based razor company. How did this direct-to-consumer company disrupt the legacy razor market? Weighing in is Chad Rubin, an entrepreneur, co-founder of the e-commerce company Skubana, and author of "Cheaper Easier Direct: How to Disrupt the Marketplace and Create Your Own E-Commerce Empire."
- The Takeaway checks in with Code Pink, a group of protestors that's on the ground in Cleveland, Ohio that have been trying to disrupt events at the Republican National Convention all week. Jodie Evans, co-founder and co-director of Code Pink, joins us.
- It has been another bloody week in Syria, with French and U.S. airstrikes reportedly killing more than 100 civilians. Videos are also circulating that purport to show Syrian rebels beheading a 12-year-old boy that they say is a Palestinian pro-government fighter. Rami Khouri, director of the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut, weighs in on the violence.
- We explore the first 25 years of the original "Star Trek" franchise ahead of the the premier of the new movie, "Star Trek Beyond," which opens on Friday. Edward Gross, co-author of "The Fifty-Year Mission: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek: The First 25 Years," joins The Takeaway.
