With the stunning result of the 2016 U.S. election behind us, policymakers and government officials across Europe are left to wonder what to expect from the administration headed by a man characterized by his lack of predictability. Both parties are due for some soul-searching as we digest the results of one of the most historical elections in U.S. history. As Trump assembles his new cabinet and outlines his policy goals, we must look at both sides of the Atlantic to see what the future holds for the U.S.-EU relationship and U.S. domestic politics.
Join us for a panel discussion on just what went wrong and what went right during the polling and election tallies, what Europe can expect from the new Trump administration, and what may be in store for the future of U.S. politics in general. The panel will feature a member of the European Parliament, as well as American voices from both sides of the aisle to address audience questions on what the future holds.
