Perhaps the most divisive (and certainly the most unprecedented) president in U.S. history, the life of Donald J. Trump has been unique. From international real estate magnate to reality television star to politician, there is perhaps no more emblematic figure of the American public's frustration with politics as usual and demand for something different. Since stepping into the Oval Office, he has defied expectations, forgoing many conventions of the office and surrounding himself with a cohort of advisors with diverse backgrounds and experiences. This collection of articles focuses on Trump, the man, and his intriguing, storied life as well as the world's reaction to his unexpected, fascinating political rise.
