A joint event series of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and The German Marshall Fund of the United States.

The world has witnessed an unprecedented presidential election campaign over the past two years. The two main candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump could not be wider apart when it comes to their policies and public appearance. However they do have one thing in common:  both are perceived highly unfavorably by a deeply divided U.S. public. Election Day on November 8th promises to be exciting until the last polling stations close.

What can be expected? How will the swing states swing?

Save the date for a breakfast discussion on the U.S. Elections 2016 – The Morning After, as our panelists present election highlights from the night before. An overview of the results, comments and analyses on the upcoming administration, and what this means for the US and global politics, will be provided. An American breakfast will be served.
