As Donald Trump prepares to take his oath of office, he’ll preside over a divided nation. A recent Gallup poll found three-fourths of Americans believe the country is split over the most important values – the highest percentage ever.

WUNC and NPR host "A Nation Engaged: A Pre-Inuguration Conversation.

With the inauguration days away, WUNC this week hosted “A Nation Engaged,” a pre-inauguration town hall at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy, and asked participants: What do you want President-elect Trump to know about  you or your community?

NPR Political Correspondent Asma Khalid and WUNC’s Adam Hochberg co-moderated the a panel that discussed what issues that divides us, what still holds us together, and what people here in Durham want from the new administration in Washington.

The panel included:

  • Bev Perdue, former Democratic North Carolina governor from 2009 to 2013
  • Jonathan Felts, a Republican political consultant and former director of political affairs for President George W. Bush
  • Mitch Meyers, an attorney and grassroots organizer for "North Carolina for Donald Trump."
  • Angela Bryant, a Democratic North Carolina state senator.
  • Fritz Mayer, a professor at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy and Director of "POLIS," the Center for Political Leadership, Innovation, and Service at Duke.
