Why Trump?

Setup

Almost no one predicted it. He began the Republican primary as the most disliked candidate in the field and heads to Cleveland its presumptive nominee. Political establishment veterans seemed caught off guard, and the #NeverTrump movement never quite caught up. What explains the rise of Donald Trump? Interpretations of (and blame for) his ascendance range from economic angst and nationalist anger to an enormous Republican field of flawed candidates. But who is he, really; what do voters see that they like; and what does his success signal about America today? Join us for an evening with journalists covering Trump, a strategist who competed with him, and a psychologist trying to get in his head.
