THE 2020 AMERICAN ELECTIONS
Will Donald Trump be re-elected? Will he be beaten? This question will only gain importance in the coming months. To popularize the American electoral process, from the primaries to the general election of November 2020, and analyze the approaches, strategies, and chances of winning of Trump and his democratic opponents, Rafael Jacob, speaker, prepares us for this ultimate confrontation which stands on the horizon.
CURRENT U.S. EVENTS
How can we understand U.S. politics? It is currently a question on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Whether it be to explain the mechanisms of our neighbours’ political system, to analyze the most recent legislative,
regulatory, economic or social changes in the United States, or to break down the American electoral
landscape, Rafael Jacob, speaker, helps us gain a better grasp of what is happening on the other side of the 49th.
THE WORLD IN THE TRUMP ERA
Donald Trump’s arrival, first on the American political scene, then in the White House, has scrambled cultural and commercial alliances. How can we understand the changes brought about by this president unlike any other, as well as their impact on international relations and the rules by which businesses and industries operate here and abroad? Rafael Jacob, speaker, helps us see clear through the daily controversies stemming from the White House.
