Carol Gould: What Next for America and the World?
Location: JW3 Centre, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET
Meretz UK invites you to hear writer, broadcaster, filmmaker and expert analyst on US politics,
Carol Gould, discuss prospects for the second half of Donald Trump’s term.
• Sunday, 18 November, starting 5.15 pm
• JW3 Centre, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET
In a talk titled What Next for America and the World? Carol will consider how Trump’s White House might deal with a House of Representatives under Democrat control, after the decisive midterm elections of 6 November. Can Congress in turn tame a wild and reckless president?
Will new alliances appear? Or might the USA divide even further? Furthermore, what impact will the new tranche of Congressmen and women make? And how might all of this affect the rest of us on the planet – including Jews in America and beyond, and US relations with Israel and the Middle East more generally? All questions answered on Sunday!
