What is Trump’s path back to power?

What is Trump’s path back to power?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a digital-only ThinkIn.

There’s rarely a second act in US politics – but if Trump taught us anything it’s that you can’t rely on convention. Biden’s plummeting approval ratings and rumours of frustrations between the West Wing and the Vice President Kamala Harris are a gift to the Trump camp. Rising gas prices and inflation are creating the perfect storm for political discontent, and Trump’s supporters are mobilising. If Trump does make a successful return to frontline politics, this time around things might be different. He has four years of experience, and greater familiarity with how the mechanisms of government work. Join us for a ThinkIn where we explore the realities of Trump’s return: can he do it?
