CNN Senior Political Reporter
Pulitzer Prize-winning Syndicated Columnist and Commentator
CNN’s Nia Malika Henderson and Pulitzer-Prize winners Charles Krauthammer and Jon Meacham join Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos for a reflection on the Presidential election and a forward look at what’s next for our country.
With a special focus on identity politics, Henderson has covered 2016 campaign for CNN — thoughtfully and expertly exploring the dynamics of demographics, race and religion, and reporting on the groups of people who help shape national elections.
Krauthammer’s writing for The Washington Post syndicated column has been described as “independent and hard to peg politically.” He provides insightful commentary nightly on FOX’s evening news program.
Together, they’ll discuss the implications of this historic election and share their predictions of what we might expect from the 45th President of the United States of America.
