For Immediate Release – May 23, 2017
Washington Examiner is excited to announce the launch of Trump’s America, a special and unique four-year reporting project that will monitor the pulse of the Trump presidency with deep, long-form reporting in nine key counties that helped swing the election to the Republican candidate.
Daniel Allott, Deputy Commentary Editor for the Washington Examiner, and his twin brother, documentary filmmaker Jordan Allott, will report from these counties regularly over the course of the Trump presidency, keeping in close touch with local communities and voters.
The launch edition, today, focuses on Robeson County, North Carolina, the most racially diverse rural county in America, which voted for Trump after twice voting for Barack Obama.
Through powerful video and photography, and detailed storytelling, Trump’s America will chronicle how people’s lives and views change as this presidency unfolds, and provide a rich account of Trump’s first term in office, as seen far away from Washington.
Jordan Allott says: “America is incredibly diverse, and people have a wide variety of political views and social and economic concerns. Trump’s America will give a voice to many of these individuals, some of whom have long been forgotten or scorned by our country’s media, entertainment, and political elite.”
Daniel Allott added: “So far, we’ve found that the Washington media establishment is even more detached from the rest of the country than we had thought. Most of the people we’ve met don’t care about many of the things that excite the media, whether it’s Trump’s tweets or a manufactured scandal.”
Editorial Director Hugo Gurdon says, “Washington Examiner is determined to report for and about the country at large, not just for and about the denizens of the federal capital. This unique series, Trump’s America, gives us the opportunity to do so in an exciting multi-media form. The Trump’s America microsite within WashingtonExaminer.com will contain what amount to nine constant focus groups among voters who gave Trump the White House, and who can take it away again from him again if they choose to do so at the next election.”
