Understanding Trump: The Meaning of an American Milestone
In this historical yet topical talk, Meacham explains the roots of the populist fervor that has gripped the country as Donald Trump ascended to the nation’s highest office. Drawing from both the left and the right, the speech is a non-partisan view of how Trump won, what his victory means, and how he will govern.
