In the wake of President Trump's election, CNN commentator Van Jones tearfully said, "This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president in part." To better understand Trump supporters, Jones sat down with them at their dinner tables to discuss politics, their reasons for voting for Trump, and why many had voted for Obama in the two previous elections. Jones joins us to talk about his new book, "Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came Apart, How We Come Together," which was inspired by his CNN show "The Messy Truth with Van Jones."

Van Jones,
social entrepreneur, political commentator and TV host; author, "Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came Apart & How We Come Together"
