As Washington Bureau Chief for the ABC, Zoe Daniel had a front row seat to the ascension and decline of Donald Trump. Seeing how he masterfully harnessed fear and anger, coupled with a reality-TV honed entertainment instinct, she bore witness to the dawn of a new era in US politics. With a new steady, staid and significantly unassuming presidential administration, who is the anomaly – Trump or Biden? What happens to Trump followers when he’s not in the White House? How does this change perceptions of US power and influence?
To discuss these issues, please join us for a webinar featuring Zoe Daniel, co-author of the new book Greetings from Trumpland in conversation with Holly Ransom, Founder and CEO of Emergent.
