The election is over, the pieces have fallen into place, and Donald Trump is the President-Elect. His campaign was marked by boastful promises, often controversial rhetoric, and a loud commitment to "Make America Great Again". What will these translate into across the next four years? What are the biggest challenges that the incoming Administration will face and tackle? What can Americans and the international community expect? With a wayward economic recovery, tough foreign policy and immigration challenges, visible social divisions, and the growing threat of climate change, what will America look like in 2020?

Mary Kissel (Editorial Board, Wall Street Journal) and Patrick Egan (Associate Professor of Politics, NYU) will be joining The Review and Debates at NYU to discuss "What's Next for America Under Trump?". A Q&A session will follow our discussion, and as always dinner will be served!
