Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy in the summer of 2015 few political experts, commentators or the general population considered him a serious contender for the Republican Party’s nomination for President. He defied the odds then, can he defy the odds in the upcoming general election against the establishment’s Hilary Clinton? US scholars from Liverpool John Moores University will discuss with the audience whether Trump can win, and what his candidacy means for the future of democracy.
