Saint Anselm College will host a live CNN Town Hall with former President Donald Trump on Wednesday, May 10 at 8 p.m. The primetime event will be hosted by “CNN This Morning” anchor Kaitlan Collins, who will moderate the discussion with the President and provide an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.
Saint Anselm has a long history of participation in the democratic process, with every major candidate for president since the 1960 election visiting the college. Through the years the college has hosted hundreds of talks, town halls and other political events. The New Hampshire Institute of Politics, a nonpartisan center whose mission is to educate, engage and empower citizens to participate in civic and political life, is at the center of much of this activity.
“We believe that honest and informed interchange of ideas and perspectives is the bedrock of an informed electorate, which is why we have enthusiastically and impartially hosted political events since the 1950s,” said Saint Anselm College President Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D. “Democracy depends on an educated citizenry. Here at Saint Anselm, we are proud to play an important and unique role in this regard.”
CNN has a tradition of hosting leading presidential candidates for Town Halls and political events as a critical component of the network’s robust campaign coverage. This event with former President Trump will be the first of many for CNN in the coming months as CNN correspondents travel across the country to hear directly from voters in the runup to the 2024 presidential election.
