Hieronder nadere informatie.
On June 30, the Netherlands Atlantic Association organizes an online program with the American political expert Matt Mayer:
The U.S. presidential election 2020
This program focuses on the upcoming presidential election in the United States.
The country currently faces major political and social; furthermore challenges and polarization seems to be a larger issue than ever before. Questions which will be addressed are a.o.: will President Trump be able to motivate a non-traditional ‘rank-and-file’ (Afro-Americans, (sub-) urban youngsters etc.) to cast their votes for him? What impact will the current debate on racism have on the election results? What will the impact be of the COVID-19 crisis on the election results? Apart from the public health issues the economy is currently in a deep crisis as well. Will it recover quickly enough for President Trump to pull off a victory?
Matt Mayer is the President of the think tank ‘Opportunity Ohio’ and a regular radio and television commentator in the United States on national and international current affairs. The program will be moderated by journalist Robbert de Witt, who works at the foreign desk of the Dutch weekly Elsevier. He writes regularly on international affairs and American politics.
