USA 2020: what’s Next, America?
It promises to be a slugfest, the likes of which have never been seen: Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. What are his chances of winning? Who will be his challenger? The United States has long been a focal point in the career of journalist and author Arthur Honegger. The news anchor for Swiss television worked in the US as a correspondent for eight years and wrote a bestseller with insights into the US and its culture (ABC 4 USA – Amerika verstehen). His analysis of the current political situation is the topic of the next Consenec Impuls event.
The talk will be held in German.
Consenec Impuls, Wednesday, 6 November 2019, 5.00pm to 6.30pm
“Forschungszentrum,” im Segelhof, 5405 Baden-Daettwil
