The Russia probe, the tax plan, immigration restrictions and the Tweeter-in-Chief, Donald Trump’s first year in office has been a busy one, but what next?

Saturday 20 January marked the first anniversary of the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America. For many, this seems like it has been a very long year indeed.

One that began before his surprise victory in November 2016 and one that includes a flurry of daily news coverage of announcements, gaffes, insults, blunders and comments that make the most seasoned of commentators scratch their head in bemused wonder.

On Wednesday 7 February the Department of American and Canadian Studies at the University of Nottingham will hold a public lecture looking at the first year of President Trump, what has happened to America since he came into power and what will happen next.

The event will be chaired by Professor Todd Landman from the School of Politics & International Relations and Dr Christopher Phelps from the Department of American and Canadian Studies.

Professor Landman, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Social Sciences at the University says: “The event will involve our own take on how the first year has gone and what we can expect for year two. We will both present and then leave ample time for questions.

“Our focus will be on his main achievements, the state of the union, and the difficulties and challenges the President has faced. We will also focus on the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Muller and the November midterm elections.”

The lecture will be held in the School of Law and Social Sciences on University Park from 5-6.30pm.
