Transatlantic Tuesdays - Double Header: The Start of the Primaries and President Trump's State of the Union Address

GMF Berlin recently launched Transatlantic Tuesdays, a regular get-together to discuss the 2020 U.S. presidential election over the course of the year. Every month, we will bring together American and European voices to analyze the latest trends in Washington and to comment on their potential consequences for transatlantic cooperation. Following the brief expert statements (15 minutes in total), we will then engage in an open debate.

Join us for a lively discussion over beer and pretzels!
