On October 9, 2020, the Aspen Institute Germany hosted a virtual discussion on “Beyond the Campaign Trail: The Future of the American Presidency” with Peter Baker, Chief White House Correspondent for The New York Times and Co-Author of The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III, and David Frum, Staff Writer for The Atlantic and Author of Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy.
Roughly four weeks ahead of Election Day, the world was again focused on the U.S. electoral map. No day passed without pollsters offering their latest take on the most recent numbers and data. But, looking beyond the election on November 3, invited 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? Vendeline von Bredow, European Business and Finance Correspondent for The Economist, moderated the discussion.
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.
