Theresa Scavenius in Deadline on the American Presidential Election

Theresa Scavenius visited Deadline on November 12 to discuss Donald Trump’s surprising victory in the American presidential election. Along with Theresa Scavenius, anthropologist Dennis Nørmark and dr.phil. Ole Thyssen was part of the panel.

The panel discussed whether Trump is expanding the range of possible political suggestions and how Trump might be challenging the tendency that political parties are somewhat gathered in the middle of the political spectrum. Further, the panel considered which changes we can expect to follow Trumps victory, the future of the international organizations he has promised to withdraw from and how he could fundamentally challenge the longs-lasting peace and cooperation between Europe and the USA.
