Join GU Politics for a discussion with David Frum on his new book, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic. The book explains why Frum believes President Trump has undermined our most important institutions in ways even the most critical media has missed and provides a warning for democracy and America’s future. Trumpocracy outlines how Trump could push America toward illiberalism, what the consequences could be for our nation and our everyday lives, and what we can do to prevent it. The event will be moderated Georgetown professor, Michael Kazin.
David Frum is a senior editor at The Atlantic and has served as the chairman of the United Kingdom’s leading right-of-center think tank, Policy Exchange. In 2001-2002, he was a speechwriter and special assistant for President George W. Bush.
Political Pageturners brings prominent politicos, writers and others to campus to discuss their latest books. Students have an opportunity to explore the book with the author, and engage on how the themes relate to national, local or campus issues. No reading required!
This event is co-sponsored with the Baker Center for Leadership & Governance.
