Against seemingly insurmountable odds, Donald Trump was elected the forty-fifth President of the United States.

Trump’s victory came as a shock to many fooled by both the polling data and the inability to seriously fathom a Trump presidency.

30 hours after the dust had somewhat settled, I sat down with reporter Daniel Serna to talk through this moment in American history.

We discussed the Electoral College, our inability (similar to other media and polls) to find and hear out Trump supporters and how we move forward from this point.
