With Masha Gessen and Harold James

Moderation: Catherine Newmark

Recorded 1 November 2020, in English 

On the occasion of the upcoming US presidential election, Berliner Korrespondenzen recorded a digital special edition. Increasing Corona numbers, racism and police violence, fires and storms, a tanking economy and quarrels about the supreme court: Numerous crises seem to reinforce and complicate each other. What is at stake in the race Biden vs. Trump? Masha Gessen and Harold James discuss the state of transatlantic relations and debate what constitutes the “system Trump” in political, social and economic regards and what are the odds to prevent four more years of his presidency. 

For those who cannot connect live, a recording of the discussion will be available as a video and as a podcast online.
