Unprecedented: The Election That Changed Everything

Date TBA


Jake Tapper


In this past year we have witnessed a change in the way campaigns and elections are run in America. With two very polarizing candidates and countless scandals, the electorate struggled to find ease with a decision of vital importance to the direction of the nation. Now that the people have spoken, resulting in an unexpected victory for Donald Trump, Americans are left to consider the election in all its unprecedented and historical significance and what it will mean for American democracy and elections to come. Join CNN's Jake Tapper for discussion and reflection on the completion of an American election that has been like no other and what lies ahead for the future of journalism and media.
