When Californians cast their ballot for president this November, they will see one name listed under two different political parties: Donald J. Trump.

Trump is already the Republican Party's nominee for president, but he's also now officially the pick of the American Independent Party (AIP) – a far-right party, not a party for independents as the name suggests.

The L.A. Times' John Myers explains to Take Two that it's legal for Trump to be on the California ballot in this way, even if he's not a member of the AIP.
