100 days after the election of Donald Trump to the office of US President, this event brings together a range of experts in the fields of modern American history and politics to debate what actually happened, in terms of process and policy, last Autumn. Reflecting on the immediate impact of the Trump victory, the speakers will also tackle more prospective questions such as: What’s on the agenda now? How likely is he [Trump] to achieve/mitigate his policy commitments? What challenges is he likely to face? This event will conduct itself in the style of a TV debate and aims to be deliberately thought-provoking about the state of politics in general, and the American Presidency in particular.
