Ten days after Election Day, an international press club came together in Berlin to discuss the aftermath of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. Four leading journalists representing the United States, Germany, Italy, Poland and France commented on possible repercussions on the Euro-American partnership and voiced their expectations towards a Biden-Harris administration. This session featured Melissa Eddy (Berlin Correspondent for The New York Times), Tina Hassel (Head and TV Editor-in-Chief of ARD-Hauptstadtstudio in Berlin), Tonia Mastrobuoni (Berlin Correspondent for La Repubblica) and Wojciech Szymański (Berlin Correspondent for the Polish Section of Deutsche Welle). Terry Martin, Senior Anchor for Deutsche Welle News, moderated the discussion. We are delighted that the Governing Mayor of Berlin Michael Müller gave opening remarks.
This event is part of the virtual Road to Election Night & Beyond, which the Aspen Institute Germany organizes in cooperation with several Berlin-based transatlantic institutions and political foundations.
