US Elections

What now for the new president-elect?

Wednesday, November 9 15:00 UK / 10:00 EDT

After a divisive and unpredictable campaign, US voters have chosen the insurgent Republican nominee, Donald Trump, to be their next president.

The 70-year old candidate who has never held elected office has wrought a ‘Brexit’-style shock on an all-too-cosy Washington, defying the prognostications of pollsters, pundits, and political experts.

However, the 45th US president will enter the White House on January 20 as a wartime commander-in-chief, the CEO of an economy locked into slow growth, and leader of a free world increasingly sceptical of Washington’s commitments abroad.

The following questions will be addressed

  • What can America and the rest of the world expect from president-elect Trump?
  • Will the demagogue of the campaign trail be changed by occupying America's highest political office?
  • Can a candidate who ripped up the rules of political orthodoxy work with Congress to deliver the jobs and policies he promised?
  • How has a nasty, spiteful and highly polarised campaign changed democratic electoral politics at home and abroad?

Please join us on Wednesday, November 9th at 3pm UK time to discuss these issues among others with a panel of Oxford Analytica’s expert advisors.
