What are the US midterm elections and what will they mean for the future of the Trump presidency?

Experts from the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney held an on-campus briefing for students, unpacking the implications of November's elections, the record number of women candidates, whether a big win by Democrats could lead to President Trump being impeached, and what the impact of the Supreme Court nomination process is likely to have on the result.

USSC speakers include Lecturer in American Studies and History Thomas Adams, Lecturer in US Politics and Foreign Policy Gorana Grgic, Associate Professor in American Politics Brendon O'Connor, and Lecturer in Political Science Shaun Ratcliff. They will be joined by the Chief Operations Officer at Young Australians in International Affairs Katrina Van De Ven.
