‘WHY TRUMP WON’ – Fareed Zakaria on the Reshaping of American Politics

‘WHY TRUMP WON’ – Fareed Zakaria on the Reshaping of American Politics

New CNN Special Report Premieres Monday, August 7 at 9:00pm Eastern on CNN/U.S. and CNN International

Donald Trump’s victory on Nov. 8, 2016, shocked the American political establishment.  WHY TRUMP WON, tells the story of the signals many missed, but were there all along.  Fareed Zakaria points to himself – “I got it wrong,” he says – as he explores the cultural forces that propelled Trump towards his historic presidential win in a new CNN Special Report, WHY TRUMP WON, that will premiere Monday, Aug. 7 at 9:00pm Eastern on CNN/U.S. and CNN International.

WHY TRUMP WON shows how Trump has worked towards closing the ultimate deal – winning the White House – for decades.  Trump attended his first Republican National convention in 1988 and competed for the Reform Party nomination in 1999.  And, through print ads, television interviews, and social media, Trump has carefully tailored his political messages over the years and ultimately persuaded millions to join his powerful political army.

In WHY TRUMP WON, Zakaria reports on families falling apart: depression, drugs, desperation, and finally resentment taking root in some American communities, supplanting what had been flourishing middle class optimism.  Under a veneer of rosy 2016 stock market and jobs statistics, was a decades-long crumbling of middle class culture and a long-simmering loss of faith in institutions.

David Betras, chairman of Ohio’s Mahoning County Democratic Party, is frustrated that “a man who [uses] gold-plated toilets” became the political bannerman for middle America, but Betras feels Hillary Clinton and the Democrats lost as definitively as Donald Trump won in 2016.  Betras says working class people in Mahoning felt Democrats, the “party of the people,” had left them.  And, they channeled their frustrations into electoral victories last year for Donald Trump that were decisive in what some described as an earthquake of an election.

‘THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD’ – Fareed Zakaria on the Rise, Reign, and Aims of Vladimir Putin

New documentary makes global broadcast premiere Monday, March 13 at 9:00pmET on CNN/U.S. and CNN International

What is the true nature of the relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin – and, what are the implications of their relationship for America and the world? CNN’s Fareed Zakaria searches for answers to these essential questions in ‘The MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD.’  The one-hour documentary simulcasts Monday, March 13 at 9:00pm on CNN/U.S. and CNN International, and then replays on CNN/U.S. at 12:00am. Both times Eastern.

Putin is subject to neither a legislature nor a court, and there is little free press in Russia.  Reared in Soviet poverty, Putin served as a KGB officer in East Germany before maneuvering his rapid rise from deputy mayor of St. Petersburg to president of post-Soviet Russia. FULL POST

The new CNN Film, The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House, will premiere in simulcast on CNN/U.S. and CNN International Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 9:00pm.  The two-hour film will encore Thursday, Jan. 19 on CNN/U.S. at 12:00am.  All three premiere telecasts will be presented with limited commercial interruption.  The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House, will encore Sunday, Jan. 22 on CNN/U.S. at 8:00pm Eastern.  All times Eastern.

Filming for The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House began shortly after Election Day 2016, and concluded with President Obama’s farewell address.  The film includes reflections by President Barack Obama on his work and hopes for the nation.

Leading voices in the film include Josh Earnest, White House press secretary; Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor; Cody Keenan, director of speech writing for the White House; Jen Psaki, White House communications director; Angella Reid, chief usher of the White House; and Tina Tchen, assistant to the President and chief of staff for First Lady Michelle Obama.  Each granted exclusive access to key meetings, their work, and their personal thoughts on their final days inside the White House.  The rare interviews capture the nostalgia of the people who have worked closest to the Obamas during their White House tenure.

“This unique epilogue for the Obama Administration captures the President’s views and his staff’s views about what their lives in public service have meant to them as they prepare to leave the White House,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent and content development.  “This film will serve as a key public record of an historic presidency, as the Obama Administration transitions executive power to the incoming Trump Administration,” Entelis said.

The 2016 presidential election rewrote the rules. It was historic, divisive, confounding and at almost every turn defied prediction.

Trump, a billionaire businessman and former reality TV star, promised to fix Washington and won the coveted office.

With two comprehensive one-hour specials, CNN goes behind the scenes for an unmatched look inside the race:

You called, CNN listened: What voicemails reveal about the American voter

What 10,000+ voicemails reveal about the American voter

Devastated. Ecstatic. Afraid. Hopeful.

We asked American voters how they are feeling about the outcome of the election and their new president-elect. You left us more than 1,500 voicemails in four days. We listened.

Here's what you said.

In a project based off the successful Love Story initiative, CNN opened up a voicemail box to hear straight from the American people.

We heard from an Obama turned Trump voter, a registered Republican who voted for Clinton, a Trump voter who feels uneasy about their vote and many, many more.

Explore voicemails verified by CNN Digital, and call in yourself to tell us how you feel. The voicemail box will be open through Inauguration 2017 and we're still listening.
