"Beyond the Campaign Trail: The Future of the American Presidency"

moderated by

European Business and Finance Correspondent for The Economist.


Roughly four weeks ahead of Election Day, the world is again focused on the U.S. electoral map. No day passes without pollsters offering their latest take on the most recent numbers and data. But, looking beyond the election on November 3, invites a larger question: No matter whether the next President is named Biden or Trump, what will the future of the American presidency look like? And what role will Democrats and Republicans play in shaping the presidency for the years to come?

Join us for a discussion with veteran journalists Peter Baker (co-author of "The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III") and David Frum ("Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy"), who will take a look beyond the campaign trail, during the final stretch of a contested race for the White House. The moderated discussion will last about 35 minutes, followed by 25 minutes of Q&A. This is the third session of the transatlantic virtual event series Road to Election Night & Beyond #R2EN, which is organized and hosted by several transatlantic institutions and political foundations.
